Dez Bryant has signed 1-year deal with Saints

Dez Bryant has signed 1-year deal with Saints

Bryant is set to join an offensive juggernaut in the Saints with Drew Brees at quarterback, Alvin Kamara running wild and catching passes out of the backfield, plus Michael Thomas lined up outside.

Bryant's eight year career in Dallas had its fair share of drama, but also some really good production as well.

Many have called Bryant "washed up" and "old", but his numbers last season with the Dallas Cowboys say otherwise. But it took longer than expected for the wide receiver to be signed by a team.

Elliott was among the Cowboys to reach out to Bryant, offering congratulations on his signing. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve last month with a knee injury, and Cameron Meredith hasn't panned out as hoped since joining the team as a restricted free agent, with zero targets over the past three games.

Quarterback Drew Brees is a flame-throwing record holder, running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram are good enough to headline a National Football League team by themselves, and Michael Thomas just made Los Angeles Rams defensive back Marcus Peters, arguably one of the top corners in the game, look like a complete fool on Sunday afternoon. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder averaged 932 receiving yards and nine touchdowns over eight years with Dallas, leading the league in scores with 16 trips to the end zone in 2014.

Soon after, Bryant tweeted several times that he holds no bitterness or anger toward the Cowboys. I think at the start of the season, we weren't in that position, and then all of a sudden a couple of guys get nicked up and there becomes a place for him.

"Dez is a great player".

In not-so-coincidental fashion, the Saints travel to Jerry World on November 29th, where they face the Cowboys in prime time. "Anytime you can add that type of talent to your team is very important".

"It's big for him, man", Crawford said, via PFT.

Payton said Bryant was probably about five pounds heavier than the Saints would like - "and that's probably common without having gone through a training camp". I know he'll help their team.
