Dez Bryant has finally found a home.

The free-agent wide receiver has signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, the team announced.

Bryant will wear his No. 88 in New Orleans, NFL Network's Jane Slater adds.

Bryant joins a 7-1 Saints team that currently holds the top spot in the NFC South. New Orleans defeated the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.

The former All-Pro receiver went unsigned after being released by the Dallas Cowboys in April. He reportedly rejected a multi-year offer from the Baltimore Ravens shortly after his release and later worked out with the Cleveland Browns near the end of the offseason.

Bryant boasts career totals of 531 receptions, 7,459 yards, and 73 touchdowns over 113 games. His last 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown season was in 2014, though he was named to the Pro Bowl in 2016.

Michael Thomas leads the Saints with 70 receptions, 880 yards, and five receiving touchdowns this season. But the team has been a little thin at wide receiver after Ted Ginn was placed on injured reserve last month. Rookie Tre'Quan Smith is the next-best pass-catcher behind running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Benjamin Watson.

Bryant will return to Dallas with his new team on Thursday night in Week 13.
