November 06, 2018 - 8:08 pm

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant left New Orleans without a deal, according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. 

Pelissero reports that the Saints liked what they saw out of Bryant during his private workout with the team on Tuesday and that the two sides are in negotiations on a deal.

A short time after his release from the Cowboys, 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher reported that Bryant would try and find a way to play against Dallas in 2018. Bryant responded to Fish's tweet by saying, "? Twice? Let's see." Hinting at his desire to sign with a NFC East foe. That won't happen here but Bryant may get his homecoming and a chance to play for a contender. 

Dallas will host the New Orleans Saints at AT&T Stadium on November 29. 

The Saints have been looking for someone to step up outside of Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith at the receiver position.

Over the course of the last several months, Bryant has called out his former Cowboys teammates, coaches and front office members on social media, blaming them for his release from the team, while praising owner Jerry Jones. He has flirted with the Cleveland Browns and turned down an offer from the Baltimore Ravens while he determined what his future was in the NFL. 

Bryant, selected by Dallas in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft, amassed 531 catches for 7,459 yards in his eight-year career with the Cowboys. He had 838 yards receiving on 69 receptions in his final season with the Cowboys. 

The Lufkin native is the club's all-time leader in touchdown receptions (73).
