Louisiana Purchase: Saints Sign Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant

The Dez Bryant saga has finally reached its next chapter as the receiver-needy Saints have signed the former Dallas Cowboy to a one-year deal.

METAIRIE, La. - Dez Bryant is back in the NFL, and he is joining one of the league's top Super Bowl contenders.

It turns out Bryant was smart to do so, because he's now in a great situation with the Saints, one that is truly unfair for the rest of the league. In Week 13, Dez will be returning to Dallas when the Cowboys host the Saints. I look forward to building a rapport with him.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Bryant, 30, has been without a club since his release from the Dallas Cowboys in April. While the veteran wide receiver held a workout for the team this week, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport revealed the two sides have come to terms on a deal. 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.


The Saints (7-1) now sit atop the NFC South and visit the Cincinnati Bengals (5-3) on Sunday.

Ted Ginn Jr. was originally the second option at wide receiver behind Thomas, but he was placed on injured reserve last month due to a knee injury. Moving forward, Bryant will be a WR3/flex as he learns the Saints offense, but his value may increase.

"It's not like you just hand him a playbook and expect him to learn it overnight", Brees said.

As for Bryant, one thing he might want to do before his return to Dallas on November 29 is purchase a few extra jerseys, because apparently, a bunch of his old teammates are hoping to trade with him after the game. From the people who love this game, who've played, they can understand that about it being somewhat harder for other people to figure that out. Seems like a real good opportunity for him. "I know he'll help their team".
