Saints coach Sean Payton said he liked what he saw out of Dez Bryant's workout Tuesday before signing the wide receiver, Herbie Teope of reports.

There was one exception, however, the Saints want to address based on Bryant's time away from the football field.

"He's a little heavy and that's pretty common," Payton said. "I'd think probably five pounds without having gone through a training camp. We felt like he did a number of things that we liked in the workout. We'll begin that process today."

Bryant, who was last officially listed at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, reported Thursday and signed a one-year prorated deal worth $1.75 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Bryant can earn $500,000 in reception incentives, making he deal actually worth up to $1.1 million for the final eight regular-season game.

Bryant immediately immersed himself in team meetings Thursday as the Saints prepare for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Payton, though, first wants to see how the newest Saints wide receiver does with absorbing the playbook and practice in the next two days.

"We'll see," Payton said. "It would be hard for me to comment not having had a practice yet. But we'll take a peek and see how he does today and tomorrow, and then we'll fill you in Sunday."
