On the heels of the Victor Butler signing, Mike Florio reports the Saints have added yet another Cowboys defensive player and former player under Saints DC Rob Ryan.

Earlier this week, linebacker Victor Butler jumped from the Cowboys to the Saints. Now, defensive end Kenyon Coleman has joined a defense that will be run by former Cowboys coordinator Rob Ryan.

Coleman played for Ryan both in Dallas and in Cleveland. A 15-game starter for the Cowboys in 2011, Coleman appeared in seven games with five starts last season.
