The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver
Dez Bryant has found a new team Christian Wilkins Jersey , agreeing to contract teams with the New Orleans Saints. who has been looking for an NFL home since becoming a free agent, will join one of the NFL's top offenses in New Orleans. A person familiar with the decision confirmed the move on Wednesday, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the roster move has not been announced.The 30-year-old Bryant spent his first eight years in the NFL with Dallas and last season caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns, including a 50-yard scoring play, for the Cowboys.However, his professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices.Seeking salary cap relief, the Cowboys released Bryant after last season with two years remaining on the receiver's five-year, $70 million contract.Last season was Bryant's best since he caught 88 passes for 1 http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/michael-deiter-jersey ,320 yards and 16 TDs in 2014, which at the time was his third consecutive season with at least 1,200 yards receiving. He signed his last contract right after that but has not approached that level of production since -- a central reason Dallas released him in April.Bryant was among several receivers to work out for the Saints on Tuesday. He'd previously met with Cleveland and Baltimore.New Orleans (7-1), which has won seven straight and leads the NFC South Division, didn't necessarily need another receiver.Led by record-setting quarterback Drew Brees, the Saints rank seventh on offense overall, averaging 402.2 yards per game, and seventh in passing, averaging 289.9 yards. At the same time Garrett Bradbury Jersey , New Orleans is without deep threat Ted Ginn Jr., who is currently on injured reserve and won't be eligible to return until the final few weeks of the season, if he's ready by then.The Saints also have yet to receive consistent production from Cameron Meredith, a former Chicago receiving leader who was acquired in free agency, but who also is trying to come back from major knee surgery that wiped out his 2017 campaign.Bryant's return to the NFL with the Saints means he could play against his former club in a few weeks. The Saints play at Dallas on Nov. 29.New Orleans also has two games remaining against division rival Carolina (6-2)."The nice thing is we don't play them until December, so we will get an opportunity to see what they are doing with him," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said shortly after hearing about Bryant's agreement with the Saints. "He's a good player. He's a guy that has shown he can go up and get the football." CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jim Caldwell spent a year away from the NFL, and while he was gone the Browns found a franchise quarterback.Maybe he'll get to coach Baker Mayfield.Caldwell, who led Indianapolis to the Super Bowl and made Detroit respectable Noah Fant Jersey , became the second candidate to interview with Browns general manager John Dorsey, who is in the early stages of finding the franchise's ninth coach since 1999.Caldwell met Wednesday with Dorsey and other members of the team's search committee in Berea, Ohio. The Browns are only confirming interviews after they are completed.The 63-year-old Caldwell's experience makes him a worthy candidate. He coached the Colts from 2009-11, winning the AFC title in his first season but losing to New Orleans in the Super Bowl. He went 36-28 in four seasons with the Lions before he was fired after going 9-7 in 2017.Dorsey is not limiting his search, and Caldwell seems to check many of the boxes the Browns are looking for in a coach following their bounce-back season. Cleveland narrowly missed the playoffs once season after going 0-16 under Hue Jackson.On Tuesday, Dorsey met with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. He went 5-3 as Cleveland's interim coach after replacing Jackson on Oct. 29. Dorsey also plans to interview Freddie Kitchens, who was promoted from running backs coach to offensive coordinator and brought out the best in Mayfield.It's expected the Browns will meet at some point with former Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy as he has connections with Dorsey and others in Cleveland's front office following years together with the Packers.Cleveland has also reportedly received permission to interview New Orleans assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell, New England linebackers coach Brian Flores, Minnesota offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski and Indianapolis coordinators Nick Sirianni and Matt Eberflus.Caldwell previously interviewed for Green Bay's opening http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/trysten-hill-jersey-cheap , one of eight around the league.Earlier this week, Dorsey outlined what he's looking for in a coach."You want a man of character," he said. "A guy who can instill leadership into these young men. A guy who is a collaborative thinker. A guy who is a continuous learner. A guy who is consistent on a day-in and day-out basis and who those players can look up to and go, 'You know what? I will follow that guy anywhere.' That is the goal for the organization is to get to what is best for this organization -- find a man of character who can lead young men."Caldwell's vast experience in college and the pros, along with a winning record in the NFL, boost his candidacy. He went 64-54, including 2-4 in the postseason, during seven seasons with Indianapolis (2009-11) and Detroit (2014-17).Caldwell was dismissed by the Lions despite two playoff appearances, and he spent the past year working as a consultant for the rebooting XFL.Dorsey wants a coach he can align with Mayfield Drew Lock Jersey , who set the rookie record for TD passes this season. Caldwell's background includes several seasons with future Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning, who took the Colts to a Super Bowl win in 2007. Caldwell also worked as Baltimore's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under coach John Harbaugh when quarterback Joe Flacco led the Ravens to a championship in 2012.Caldwell is among the minority candidates recommended to the league by the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which promotes diversity and equality among NFL teams. The league's Rooney Rule requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate.
