The Dallas Cowboys didn't want Rob Ryan, but the defensive coordinator will take his former players.
The New Orleans Saints have reeled in defensive end Kenyon Coleman, ProFootballTalk reported Friday. Coleman started five games for the Cowboys in 2012, but he was placed on injured reserve after he tore the triceps in his left arm.
Coleman, 33, was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the fifth round of the 2002 draft. He was a regular starter with the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Cowboys from 2007 to 2011. The 6-foot-5, 285-pounder had 36 tackles and one sack in 2011.
