Excited Cowboys detail what Saints are getting in former teammate Dez Bryant

Saints sign ex Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

The Saints took a large step Wednesday to bolster the wide receiving corps by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with Dez Bryant. The Cowboys did Bryant no favors by waiting weeks into free agency before they cut him.

Seeking salary cap relief, the Cowboys released Bryant after last season with two years remaining on the receiver's five-year, $70 million contract. This certainly adds a dimension to the Saints' Nov. 30 game, a Thursday night visit to the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

Even if Bryant isn't at full speed by that game, the Saints will probably do their best to feed him at least a few times.

Soon after, Bryant tweeted several times that he holds no bitterness or anger toward the Cowboys. Cowboys fans will surely show their appreciation for Bryant, one of the best receivers in team history. "I think he's going to be a good veteran for that team". I'm just hoping for the best for him.

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

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. "Really happy for him and that opportunity", he said.

A change of scenery could be good for Bryant. "He's definitely a special player and I'm glad he got picked up and I'm glad something worked out for him".

"I don't know Dez". The Cowboys host the Saints on November 29.

Bryant has said he would wait for the right opportunity. He wants to finish his career strong, done such a great job for this organization, has been an impact player in this league over the course of his eight years playing. During his eight seasons in Dallas, Bryant played in two divisional playoff games in 2014 and 2016, losing both to the Packers, and one wild card, defeating the Lions in 2014. Especially if Payton can get him the same mismatches he was able to scheme up for Cameron Meredith, whom Bryant will likely replace in the slot. You're getting a very passionate football player.
