Former Cowboy Dez Bryant Reportedly Signing With The Saints

  • Dez Bryant

New Orleans coach Sean Payton acknowledged to reporters on Wednesday that the team had worked out some receivers on Tuesday, including Bryant, but said it wasn't an indictment on the team's other receivers.

While the Cowboys were at training camp, Bryant took shots at the franchise as well as several players, on Twitter. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last month.

He's been close to a deal before, but all signs points to the Saints inking Bryant to a deal. New Orleans also has its No. 88 jersey available. There will be no blaming struggles on the quarterback with Drew Brees throwing the ball.

The Saints win over previously unbeaten LA has solidified them as a threat to make the Super Bowl.


The 30-year-old Bryant had a team-leading 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns with Dallas in 2017. Running back Alvin Kamara (51 catches) and tight end Benjamin Watson (26 catches) rank second and third on the Saints. He had received interest from Cleveland and Baltimore this season, but he hasn't signed a deal.

That may be what the Saints are thinking-that given the rest of the regular season to get the game of the offense, Bryant can really help things move in the playoffs.

The veteran wide receiver hasn't seen any National Football League action since being released by the Cowboys in April after spending eight seasons in Dallas.
