Dez Bryant Signing With New Orleans Saints

Dez Bryant Signing With New Orleans Saints”

As NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport was doing a live hit from his home, discussing the New Orleans Saints' signing of Dez Bryant with three network colleagues, you suddenly saw a small hand enter the frame, holding what appeared to be a television remote. A person familiar with the decision confirmed the move today, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the roster move has not been announced.

Garrett was asked if he had been hoping Bryant would sign with a team that doesn't play the Cowboys this year and he repeated his first answer, which basically seemed like his way of ducking the question.

Former Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowler Dez Bryant is a free agent no more. Since that banner year, Bryant has posted just 150 catches, 2,035 yards and 17 touchdowns over the past three seasons.

New Orleans (7-1), which has won seven straight and leads the NFC South Division, didn't necessarily need another receiver. He signed his last contract right after that but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April.

Bryant retweeted a person congratulating him on landing with the Saints, who lost receiver Ted Ginn Jr. for the year.

The Saints also have yet to receive consistent production from Cameron Meredith, a former Chicago receiving leader who was acquired in free agency, but who also is trying to come back from major knee surgery that wiped out his 2017 campaign.

Regardless, it should make for an interesting reunion when Bryant and the Saints play at Dallas in Week 13 on Thursday Night Football.

Meanwhile, how the Saints plan to work in Bryant during practices before Sunday's game remains to be seen.

"Dez has been a really good player in this league for a long time and there's certainly a skillset he has that is going to be beneficial", Brees said. 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.
