A former Clemson Football standout has found a new home in the NFL.
Former Clemson defensive tackle Albert Huggins is signing with the New Orleans Saints, according to his agent, Casey Muir.
Huggins signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2019 and has been with several teams since then, including the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings.
