WR Bryant to join Saints on one-year deal

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to multiple reports.

He won't have to wait long for a chance to show his old team what he has left.

The Saints (7-1, 1st in NFC South) play Dallas (3-5) on Nov. 29.

Bryant will sign the deal on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

A tweet by the NFL Network's Ian Rapaport announcing the deal was shared by Bryant with the hashtag #ThrowuptheX, a reference to his celebration move.

Rapoport later reported the Saints would restructure left tackle Terron Armstead's contract -- turning the remainder of his $10.2 million base salary into a signing bonus -- to create cap space for Bryant's signing.

Bryant, who turned 30 on Sunday, has been a free agent since he was released by Dallas in April. He has visited several teams, including a workout with the Cleveland Browns in August. When Bryant worked out with the Browns, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms.

Bryant took part in a workout with the Saints on Tuesday.

Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns in his career. Last season, he notched 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns in his eighth NFL year, all with the Cowboys.

Not long after his release from Dallas, Bryant turned down a three-year contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens, according to several media outlets. He intended to sign a one-year contract this season, then work on a longer-term deal starting next season, the reports said.
