Saints signing veteran WR Brandon Marshall

Could Brandon Marshall end up in New Orleans? More

Just days after signing Dez Bryant to a 1-year deal and losing him to a torn Achilles in his second practice with the team, the New Orleans Saints brought free agent WR Brandon Marshall back in and quickly signed him to a 1-year deal.

Sean Payton confirmed the signing on Monday.

It took Dez Bryant nine weeks into the season to find a new home in the National Football League, but his comeback was put on hold just two practices in with the New Orleans Saints.

When asked what he liked about Marshall's workout, Payton said, "He moved around well". "He's smart, he's experienced". And overall he had a good workout. "He's another big target". With Bryant now out for the year, the team is willing to circle back to Marshall.

Both receivers auditioned for the Saints this past Tuesday.

Marshall, 34, began the season with the Seahawks and appeared in six games (two starts) before he was released after Week 8.

Marshall gives the Saints some experience in a wide receivers room whose elder statesman is Michael Thomas, a third-year player. He made 11 catches for 136 yards and one touchdown. Last season he had just 18 catches for 154 yards and zero touchdowns in five games with the Giants before landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
