DB Trill Williams

Williams appeared in 28 games and can play multiple positions in the secondary. He also won the triple crown by scoring touchdowns off of a blocked bunt, recovered fumble, and interception.
TE Dylan Soehner, Iowa State

He’ll compete right away with Nick Vannett, Garrett Griffin, and Ethan Wolf for a spot on the depth chart behind Adam Trautman.
P Nolan Cooney, Syracuse

The Saints are bringing in Syracuse’s Nolan Cooney to push Penn State alum Blake Gillikin, who spent his rookie year interning under Thomas Morstead. Cooney led the nation in just about every punting stat you can imagine in 2020.
