NFL: New Orleans Saints-Training Camp Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday the Chicago Bears announced that they were signing wide receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert to a reserve/futures contract. Williams-Lambert (6’3”, 228) was most recently with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League where he racked up 62 receptions, 764 yards and 4 touchdowns in the 2018 season while being named the West Division’s top rookie.

He played his college football for the Ball State Cardinals where he compiled 200 catches for 2723 yards, and 23 TDs from 2013 to 2015. Those stats respectively rank 5th, 5th, and 4th all time in Cardinals’ history. At his 2015 pro day he ran a 4.64 forty, with a vertical jump of just over 33 inches, and 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench.

He was originally an undrafted free agent of the New Orleans Saints and he spent his entire rookie season on their practice squad. He was waived/injured by the Saints before the 2017 season started, but he filmed this video in November of that year to show he was healthy.

In 2018 he played 17 games for the Roughriders and was tenth in the league with those 62 catches. He’s a big-bodied hands-catcher that may be ready for his second chance in the NFL.

He are some of his highlights from the CFL.
