Dez Bryant's next stop in the National Football League could be with... Drew Brees

Dez Bryant is reportedly scheduled to work out for the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday. More

And that's true if Payton, one of the league's best play-designers, understands what Bryant is and isn't at this point in his career.

The Saints have one of the top pass catchers in the game in Michael Thomas, but have struggled to find a reliable second receiver after placing Ted Ginn on injured reserve.

He meant to sign a one-year contract this season, then work on a longer-term deal starting next season, the reports said.

Several members of the organization said that they wanted quarterback Dak Prescott to be able to spread the ball around.

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. Running back Alvin Kamara (51 catches) and tight end Benjamin Watson (26 catches) rank second and third on the Saints.

Bryant, who turned 30 on Sunday, has been a free agent since he was released by Dallas in April. After that there is a serious drop off and the receiving corps could use an upgrade on the outside so it is understandable why the team would be pursuing Bryant and Marshall. He had received interest from Cleveland and Baltimore this season, but he hasn't signed a deal. Last season, the three-time Pro Bowler notched 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns.
