The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran Brandon Marshall to a one-year deal, to replace Dez Bryant. Sean Payton confirmed the signing on Monday, saying at Marshall’s workout on Monday: “He moved around well. He’s smart, he’s experienced, he’s someone that’s been in a number of systems. And overall he had a good workout. He’s got good length and size. He’s another big target.”

Marshall was released by the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 30 and by the New York Giants in April. It is his fourth team in two years and the seventh of his 13-year career. He has 970 career receptions for 12,351 yards and 83 touchdown catches, and his six seasons of 100-plus receptions is the most in NFL history.
