Saints Sign Dez Bryant

Published

on

The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant to a one-year deal, according to Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune.

Bryant will formally sign the deal on Thursday and is a far cry from the offer he received from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this season, who offered him a three-year, $21 million contract that Bryant rejected.

Rejecting that deal proved to be foolish for Bryant who spent several more weeks on the free agent market, flirting withe the Cleveland Browns before eventually working out for the Saints this week and reaching an agreement on a contract.

New Orleans also worked out Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken.

The New Orleans Saints have released offensive tackle Derek Newton, who has been attempting to make a comeback from two torn patellar tendons.

New Orleans signed Newton to a two-year deal earlier this month and Newton hasn’t played since 2016, meaning the Saints were willing to be patient with his potential return to the field.

However, a need for depth forced the Saints to cut those plans short, and they released Newton on Thursday.

In a corresponding move, the Saints signed Cornelius Lucas.
