The Dallas Cowboys broadband receiver, Dez Bryant, has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to several reports.
He will not have to wait long to get a chance to show his old team what he has left.
The Saints (7-1, 1st in NFC South) play in Dallas (3-5) on November 29th.
Bryant will sign the deal on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
A tweet from the NFL Network's Ian Rapaport announcing the agreement was shared by Bryant with the hashtag #ThrowuptheX, a reference to his celebratory move.
Rapoport later reported that the Saints would restructure Terron Armstead's contract with the left tackle, turning the rest of his base salary of $ 10.2 million into a signing bonus, to create a space for Bryant's signature.
Bryant, who turned 30 on Sunday, has been a free agent since he was released from Dallas in April. He has visited several teams, including a training session with the Cleveland Browns in August. When Bryant worked with the Browns, he briefly negotiated with the team, but he never did the math.
Bryant took part in a training session with the saints on Tuesday.
Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns in his career. Last season, he recorded 69 holds for 838 yards and six touchdowns in his eighth year of the NFL, all with the Cowboys.
Not long after his release from Dallas, Bryant refused a three-year contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens, according to various media reports. He plans to sign a one-year contract this season, then work on a long-term agreement starting next season, reports have reported.
