METAIRIE, La. — Dez Bryant is back in the NFL, and he is joining one of the league’s top Super Bowl contenders.The former Dallas Cowboys receiver has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Adam Schefter Wednesday. It was not immediately known how much Bryant will make.
Sources told Schefter that Bryant is comfortable proving what he can do for a contending team this season before becoming a free agent again.Although the Saints (7-1) are thriving, with a seven-game win streak and the No. 2 scoring team in the NFL, they are thin on proven receivers. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve last month with a knee injury. And Cameron Meredith hasn’t panned out as hoped since joining the team as a restricted free agent this offseason, with zero targets over the past three games.
