The Saints on Tuesday also worked out Brandon Marshall, who most recently played for the Seahawks, and Kamar Aiken, who was released by the Eagles last month.
Bryant, 30, has been out of football since being released by the Dallas Cowboys in April. Over eight seasons in Dallas, he caught 531 passes, surpassing 1,000 yards receiving in three consecutive seasons from 2012-14. He would be an interesting addition to coach Sean Payton’s mad-scientist offence that has, at times, featured three quarterbacks on the field at the same time. He’d join receivers Michael Thomas, Tre’Quan Smith, Austin Carr and Cameron Meredith and would be especially motivated for the Nov. 29 game against the Cowboys in AT&T Stadium.
If it seems the Saints’ offence hardly needs any help, remember that they play the Bengals in Cincinnati on Sunday, followed by a home game against the Eagles on Nov. 18 and a Thanksgiving night home game against the Falcons. Cincinnati and Atlanta both rank in the NFL’s top 10 in scoring, while Philadelphia is in the top half of the league in yards per game.
