Dez Bryant works out for Saints


There will be no blaming struggles on the quarterback with Drew Brees throwing the ball. But New Orleans could use another weapon.

But as the Saints set their sites on a Super Bowl run, an upgrade at receiver is a glaring need.

Marshall was recently released by the Seattle Seahawks after a short stint with the team and like Bryant has been looking for another opportunity in the NFL.

The 30-year-old Bryant had a team-leading 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns with Dallas in 2017.

The veteran wide receiver hasn't seen any National Football League action since being released by the Cowboys in April after spending eight seasons in Dallas.

The Saints haven't gotten enough production from their receivers despite posting a top flight offense week-in, week-out.

The Baltimore Ravens offered Bryant a multi-year deal, but he reportedly wants a one-year, "prove-it" deal.

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

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, while Dez Bryant isn't what he used to be, he may be just enough for the Saints-as long as they understand what they're getting, and what they're not.
