Dez Bryant is set up for success in New Orleans

Dez Bryant is set up for success in New Orleans

After a long, drawn out season that has seen the Dallas franchise leader in career touchdown receptions flirt with several AFC teams, the free agent wide receiver has landed with an NFC foe, and one that has a serious history of giving the Cowboys headaches. The Cowboys did Bryant no favors by waiting weeks into free agency before they cut him.

Adding Bryant, the 30-year-old former first-round draft pick who was released by the Dallas Cowboys this past offseason, will obviously take snaps from someone else, but it will also create a rather ridiculous 1-2 tandem with him and Thomas if both play at max ability.

The Saints (7-1, 1st in NFC South) play Dallas (3-5) on November 29.

Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker Once Expressed Terrifying View Of Executive Power
The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Bannon and other Stone associates have been questioned, and multiple witnesses have appeared before the grand jury.

The Saints aren't statistically the best offense in the NFL. You know Bryant wouldn't mind another big night in Dallas, this time in a odd uniform. He signed his last Cowboys contract right after that, but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April.

Bryant's former teammates on the Cowboys wished him the best in his new gig Wednesday. Bryant had barely signed and Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith was already asking to swap jerseys after the game. 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. "I know he can still contribute to a team and I'm glad it's going to be us". 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. Elliott and Bryant exchanged text messages Wednesday afternoon.

Bryant hasn't played football since New Year's Eve. Really happy for him and that opportunity. "I know it's important to him", Garrett said. 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. Bryant spent the majority of his career in Dallas playing on the outside, though he played more snaps than usual in the slot previous year.
