Report Wide receiver Dez Bryant to sign with the Saints

Dez Bryant, yes, that Dez Bryant, worked out for the Saints this week - something the organization does quite often during each season - and, according to the NFL Network, negotiations started to bring the former All-Pro wideout to the Big Easy before being finalized Wednesday morning.

Bryant's loyalty to the organization that unceremoniously dumped him in the late stages of free agency can not be understated.

Bryant, a first-team All-Pro selection in 2014 and three-time Pro Bowler, hasn't played football since being released by the Dallas Cowboys during the offseason, following a slip in production the past two seasons.

Given that the Cowboys play the Saints on November 29, and understanding he will be motivated to have a big game, Garrett was asked if he wished Bryant signed with a different team.


What Bryant provides, however, is another weapon for Brees to consider in one of the NFL's top offenses.

Bryant's signing with Saints also officially marks the end of an era in Dallas.

The Cowboys released Bryant on April 13 to save $8 million against the salary cap.

Bryant's former teammates on the Cowboys wished him the best in his new gig Wednesday.


Elliott said Bryant will fit in with the Saints and dismissed the notion that the star receiver was disruptive in the locker room or toxic in the receivers room.

A change of scenery could be good for Bryant.

That Bryant's production fell off in 2017 was more of an indictment of the Cowboys coaching staff than it was an indictment of his ability to still produce in this league. I think for any new guy coming in, especially a skill player, it's new verbiage.

Added Cowboys coach Jason Garrett: "I'm happy he has an opportunity to go play and finish the right way, it will be a great environment for him to go out and make an impact". "I know it's important to him. He goes up and attacks the ball better than I've seen anyone", Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot said. Dallas selected Bryant with a first round pick (24th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State.
