Abram was selected by the Raiders with pick No. 27 of the first round of the 2019 NFL draft, following a standout career at Mississippi State. In 35 games for the Raiders, Abram made 246 tackles and recorded three interceptions.
Following a mostly disappointing career, Abram was waived by the Raiders on Nov. 8 last season. The Green Bay Packers claimed Abram off waivers but subsequently released him after appearing in just two games.
The hard-hitting safety signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 30, and he went on to record 10 tackles with two pass breakups in five regular-season games. He added two tackles in Seattle’s 41-23 wild-card loss to San Francisco.
Abram will join former Las Vegas teammate Derek Carr, who signed with the Saints on March 6. He will add depth to a talented secondary that already boasts Marcus Maye and Tyrann Mathieu and Marshon Lattimore.
