Saints sign ex-Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant

Saints sign ex-Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant

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 season.

Dez Bryant isn't the same player he once was-the last time we saw him, he was a step slow and still struggling with drops-but that's not a problem right now. It's unclear if Thomas or Bryant will fill that role most often.

Bryant will have a few weeks to get himself acclimated to the league's top offense before facing off against his old friends when the two teams collide November 29 on Thursday Night Football.

Sherman took to his personal Twitter account and reacted to the news that Bryant had signed with the Saints. The Saints are 7-1 and boast an offensive foundation of playmakers with Thomas, running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, tight end Benjamin Watson, and even all-purpose backup quarterback Taysom Hill.

Last season was Bryant's best since he caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 TDs in 2014, which at the time was his third consecutive season with at least 1,200 yards receiving. Is it Dez? Is it Tre'Quan? Not only were they a good team last week, they were able to sign Dez Bryant to help bolster their offense. After all, as Cowherd notes, the NFL historically has been a "copycat" league. 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.

Meredith is expected to make a full recovery, sources said.

"I don't know how much carryover there will be from what he had in Dallas - it's probably not a lot - so that's a process".

The Saints went into negotiations with Bryant's representatives with roughly $950,000 in available space, barely enough to cover his veteran's minimum salary of $915,000. You bring him along and you want to put him in position to succeed, right?
