Former Cowboy Dez Bryant agrees to deal with Saints

  • What Dez Bryant signing with the Saints means for fantasy football owners

When asked where Bryant might fit best a few months ago, Cowboys' quarterback Dak Prescott called it. He recorded three straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, and he earned Pro Bowl invites in 2013, 2014 and 2016. Last season, Bryant caught 69 passes, including six touchdowns, for a grand total of 838 yards and was tied for third in the league in dropped passes.

Soon after, Bryant tweeted several times that he holds no bitterness or anger toward the Cowboys. They're also replacing the mediocre Meredith, who isn't much faster than Bryant, with an accomplished receiver. "Right when I got here, he took me under his wing". You're getting a very passionate individual. "That has nothing to do with how the other guys are playing".

"Dez has been a really good player in this league for a long time and there's certainly a skillset he has that is going to be beneficial", Brees said.

NFL Media notes that Bryant will wear No. 88 in New Orleans and report to the team's facility on Thursday after spending Wednesday in Dallas with his son.


"Dez is a great player".

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". He wants to finish his career strong. "I know he'll help their team".

Bryant's presence in New Orleans figures to boost a passing offense that already ranks as one of the top ten best in the NFL. "It was more so knowing a guy like that is out there, and there might come a time when we could need a guy like that". Bryant spent the majority of his career in Dallas playing on the outside, though he played more snaps than usual in the slot past year. We have yet to mention Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram or the league's best offensive line, which now resides in New Orleans. Bryant worked out for the Saints along with Brandon Marshall and Kamara Aiken earlier in the week but left New Orleans without a contract.
