New Orleans will also work out two other wideouts with Bryant.
Bryant wanted a one-year deal, a prove-it type of pact that would let him show the league that he still has plenty left and allow him to become a free agent again in 2019. Running back Alvin Kamara (51 catches) and tight end Benjamin Watson (26 catches) rank second and third on the Saints.
But it seems both the Saints and Bryant's camp are optimistic that the teams will work out a deal.
On field again: Dez Bryant is joining the New Orleans Saints, agreeing to a contract through the rest of this season. It's an offense that's all about timing on combination routes, aligning everything so that Brees can either get the ball out quickly to a first or second read, or for Brees to hurl the ball downfield.More news: Yankees MLB trade rumors: Giancarlo Stanton to make room for Bryce Harper?
But as the Saints set their sites on a Super Bowl run, an upgrade at receiver is a glaring need.
After months of speculation, Dez Bryant may finally find a new home. However, the Cowboys did trade for Oakland Raiders wide receiver during their bye week this season.
Bryant had just 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season in 16 games played.
