The New Orleans Saints finished their offseason transformation of the wide receiver position by adding veteran Jarvis Landry to the mix. The 29-year-old was officially inked to a one-year deal worth $6 million on Sunday and will take over as the primary slot option for head coach Dennis Allen.

The Saints were quick to post a video of Landry signing his new deal with a collage of pictures captioned "Welcome Home" in the background. Of course, he grew up not too far from The Big Easy in Convent, Louisiana, and spent his college days playing at LSU in front of Tigers faithful.

Landry joins a receiving core that features All-Pro Michael Thomas and 2022 first-round pick Chris Olave. With those two patrolling the outside, Landry can take over in the slot, where he has lined up for 66% of his career snaps and racked up 7,598 yards to go along with 37 touchdowns in eight NFL seasons.

Jameis Winston has to be excited to have Landry be a part of his weaponry. Landry averages 11.0 yards per reception and logged 273 yards after the catch in 2021 (12 games).

The Saints will hope a revamped offense can be enough to keep up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC South. For now, New Orleans has odds set at +380 to earn a divisional crown and odds set at +4000 to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
