According to NFL Network, the former Cowboys wide receiver left his Tuesday workout with New Orleans without a new contract but is in negotiations with the club on a deal. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last month. Running back Alvin Kamara (51 catches) and tight end Benjamin Watson (26 catches) rank second and third on the Saints.

Bryant has been linked to a number of teams before and during the season, but nothing has come to fruition. "No way you can cheat it". He caught 531 passes for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns during his tenure, including 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.

During the offseason, Bryant rejected a contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens. He meant to sign a one-year contract this season, then work on a longer-term deal starting next season, the reports said.
