The former Pro Bowl wide receiver has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The move has yet to be announced by the team.

The Saints have racked up the seventh-most passing yards per game this season with 289.9 and second-most most points at 34.9.

Should the Eagles be concerned?

On one hand, the obvious answer is yes.

The Saints (7-1) will visit the Bengals (5-3) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.

Bryant now enhances what was already a very unsafe Saints offense, giving them one of the NFL's best red zone weapons since he came into the league in 2010. If Bryant is even half of the player he used to be, it will not be as easy for opposing defenses to focus on Thomas as it was prior to the signing.

'Red Dead Redemption 2' Missing Characters Bug Fix In the Works
Following the launch, curious fans began wondering how the non-player characters, or NPC for short, spend their time in the world. Not even 24 hours after its release, Red Dead Redemption 2 was being labeled the best game of the year, and trust me, it is.

Over his career, Bryant has just one game played in the SuperDome, catching one pass for 44 yards in a 2013 blowout loss, 49-17.

NFL Media notes that Bryant will wear No. 88 in New Orleans and report to the team's facility on Thursday after spending Wednesday in Dallas with his son.

The 6ft 2in, 220lbs receiver recorded three straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, but his production was marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices. Having Bryant on the roster will make game planning for the Saints in Week 11 that much harder.

New Orleans knew it couldn't go deep in the playoffs without shoring up their defense backfield, hence the trade for Apple ahead of the deadline two weeks ago. Only the Chicago Bears are allowing less (0.4 less).

Bryant, 30, previously held a featured role with the Cowboys, but that won't be the case in New Orleans.

Still, no matter how you slice it, it isn't good news for the Eagles that the Saints have added a player that has a ceiling as high as Bryant.
