He is known to have met with Cleveland and Baltimore before his workout with New Orleans this week earned him a spot on a Saints offense that now ranks seventh in the National Football League and is led by the NFL's all-time leader in completions and yards passing.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bryant's one-year contract with the Saints will play him $600,000 based on a pro-rated $1.25 million base salary for the rest of the season.

Will Bryant, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys in April, similarly reward the Saints for bringing him aboard this week?

The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced any details of Bryant's medical exam.

"I'm always going to be me, you know, who I am".

The Patriots didn't lean heavily on Harrison right away - much like the Saints probably won't lean heavily on Bryant right away - but he ultimately made an impact and helped New England reach Super Bowl LII. Payton said the wideout is expected to make a "full recovery".

Obviously, the Bengals will miss A.J. Green at wide receiver this week with his injury.

By the time the Saints decided that they needed a guy like Bryant, it didn't take long for them to come to an agreement. Meredith will finish the year with nine catches for 114 yards and a touchdown. We felt like he did a number of things that we liked in the workout. I love my ex-teammates.

Bryant said he is "not at all" bitter about his departure from the Cowboys, adding, "That chapter's closed".
