If the latest reports are true, the New Orleans Saints are going to be in need of an emergency replacement for Dez Bryant ASAP.

Dez Bryant reportedly suffered an Achilles injury that could potentially be season-ending.

As for what the Saints plan to do now that they've lost their new weapon, NFL insider Adam Schefter has a suggestion.

Schefter indicated that the Saints could look to free agent WR Brandon Marshall. The 34-year-old wide receiver reportedly had an impressive workout with the team this week. However, the workout did not result in a contract.

Marshall was released by the Seattle Seahawks six games into the 2018 season. Until that point, Marshall had 11 receptions for 136 yards and a TD.

He spent 2017 with the Giants, but was released after missing most of the season with an injury.

The Saints signed Bryant earlier this week, hoping that he could provide a jump-ball threat for Drew Brees.

Fortunately for the Saints, a healthy Brandon Marshall can offer similar traits to Dez Bryant.
