Newly signed veteran cornerback Marcus Williams and safety Robert Nelson have joined the New Orleans Saints at training camp.

The roster moves announced Sunday by coach Sean Payton give the Saints two players in the secondary named Marcus Williams Patrick Marleau Jersey , the other being a second-year safety and 2017 second-round draft choice.

The newly acquired Williams has played four NFL seasons, mostly with the New York Jets, for whom he played 39 games with 14 starts. He was traded last season to Houston and played in 10 games there as a reserve, intercepting one pass.

Nelson also is entering his fifth NFL season. He played in seven games for Cleveland in 2014, 11 for Houston in 2016 and two last season with the Jets.

Payton says the club waived guard Trevor Darling and defensive back De'Vante Harris to make room on the 90-man training camp roster for the new defensive backs.

Last week, the Vikings’ starting offense looked good. This week Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , not.

Seven days after shredding the Denver defense, the Minnesota No. 1 offense sputtered through three drives against the Jaguars in the Vikings’ preseason home opener.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed three of eight passes for 12 yards, and the Vikings punted twice while Cousins and the starting unit was on the field. The second drive resulted in a field goal, but it covered only 30 total yards, and it was fueled by 30 yards from a pair of personal fouls.

Latavius Murray had six carries for 12 yards. He fumbled twice, losing one. None of the Vikings’ top receiving options — Stefon Diggs Brandon Linder Jersey , Adam Thielen, and Kyle Rudolph — had a catch.

Ultimately, the subpar performance means as much as last week’s strong showing meant: Not much. What matters is what happens when the real games start, with the top offense on the field for a contest that is preceded by careful game planning and that includes in-game adjustments.
