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 today.

Dallas cut Bryant late in the free agent process in April, and he has struggled to find work after dalliances with the New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns failed to pan out.

The Saints win over previously unbeaten LA has solidified them as a threat to make the Super Bowl. He had 69 catches for 838 yards and six TDs last season so it would seem like he has some game left in him. The Saints don't have a designated receiver for that right now.

She also revealed how she underwent IVF in order to give birth to Malia, now 20 years old, and Sasha, now 17. She says Trump followed Clinton around the stage, stood too close, and tried to diminish her presence.

It's unclear if the Saints plan on signing one of the receivers or if they are just updating their "ready list" at the position in case a need arises down the road - which is a common practice for National Football League teams.

After that, it's a pretty severe dropoff. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last month.

Michael Thomas is their number one option, with rookie Tre'Quan Smith, Cameron Meredith and slot receiver Austin Carr also on the depth chart. So there's a little extra incentive for Bryant to sign here. The rare connection between coach and quarterback in New Orleans, which manifests itself on the fiend constantly, is something Bryant's never benefited from-not at this level.
