The New Orleans Saints are continuing to revamp their wide receiver corps, as five-time Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry is set to join the team, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Landry, a former LSU star from just outside the New Orleans area, would be the second local icon to join the Saints in the past two weeks after they signed safety Tyrann Mathieu last week. Landry appeared to confirm the homecoming by posting a social media video Friday with highlights of himself and the team.

"HOME !!! WHO DAT NATION SEE YOU SOON," Landry wrote in an Instagram post.

The Saints finished last in the NFL in passing yards in 2021 because of a barrage of injuries. Wide receiver Michael Thomas missed the entire season with an ankle injury, while quarterback Jameis Winston missed the final 10 games with a torn ACL.

But Thomas is expected to return, and the Saints made a pair of trades to move up and select Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave with the 11th pick of the NFL draft.

Landry, 29, has 688 receptions for 7,598 yards and 37 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns. The 5-foot-11, 196-pound receiver should continue to line up primarily in the slot for the Saints as he has through most of his career.
