FRISCO — Two-hundred and eight days after driving away from The Star for the last time, Dez Bryant has found a new team. The Cowboys’ all-time leader in touchdown receptions is joining the New Orleans Saints.

Bryant, according to multiple reports, is signing a one-year deal.

He won’t have to wait long to play against his former team. The 7-1 Saints travel to AT&T Stadium to face the Cowboys on Nov. 29.

“Dez is a great player,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. “Dez was a great player in this organization for a long time. I’m really happy for him and that opportunity. I know it’s important to him. He wants to finish his career strong.

“It seems like a real good opportunity for him. I know he’ll help their team.”

Bryant is joining one of the all-time great quarterbacks in Drew Brees and the NFC’s No. 1 scoring offense, which is averaging 34.9 points per game this season.

It will be interesting to see what kind of shape Bryant is in. He has posted many videos on his social media accounts over the last few months showcasing some of his workouts. But that’s different from football shape.

Bryant has not played in a NFL game since Jan. 1 when the Cowboys finished the 2017 NFL season against the Eagles.

Bryant confirmed the news via his Twitter account.
