Dez Bryant, Saints reportedly negotiating contract
The New Orleans Saints are reportedly in negotiations to add another weapon for Drew Brees to utilize.
New Orleans brought in three receivers for a workout on Tuesday. Among them was Dez Bryant. While the former Pro Bowler departed without a contract, the two sides are reportedly in negotiations on a deal.
Dez Bryant left New Orleans without a contract, but the #Saints liked what they saw and the sides are in negotiations on a deal, sources tell me, @SlaterNFL and @RapSheet. He’s been close before, so nothing’s done until it’s done, but all signs pointing that way.

Bryant was released by the Cowboys during the offseason and has yet to find a new team. He also negotiated with the Cleveland Browns but ultimately could not reach an agreement.
The Saints already boast an explosive offense, led by future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. Adding Bryant, who caught 69 passes for 838 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, would give Brees another target to go along with Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara.
