Former Cowboy Dez Bryant signing deal with Saints

Saints sign ex Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

Garrett was asked if he had been hoping Bryant would sign with a team that doesn't play the Cowboys this year and he repeated his first answer, which basically seemed like his way of ducking the question.

The Saints also worked out veteran receivers Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken on Tuesday before making the deal with Bryant.

Bryant arrives Thursday morning, and should immediately help the Saints' passing attack once he's up to speed on the offense given New Orleans has lacked a viable No. 2 wide receiver opposite Michael Thomas through nine games. I think for any new guy coming in, especially a skill player, it's new verbiage. He averaged 91 catches for 1,311.7 yards with 13.7 touchdowns during a three-year stretch from 2012 to 2014 and still caught 69 passes for 838 yards with six TDs last season for the Cowboys. He's now playing with one of the league's best quarterbacks and for one its brightest minds. He had previously turned down offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

Bryant, 30, spent his entire eight-year career in Dallas before being cut by the Cowboys in mid-April.

New Orleans appears to be all-in on a Super Bowl run, with 39-year-old quarterback Drew Brees having one of the best seasons of his career as the Saints continue to make aggressive moves to fill holes in the lineup.

Bryant retweeted a person congratulating him on landing with the Saints, who lost receiver Ted Ginn Jr. for the year.

As for Bryant, one thing he might want to do before his return to Dallas on November 29 is purchase a few extra jerseys, because apparently, a bunch of his old teammates are hoping to trade with him after the game.

"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.

"They're getting a great receiver".

New Orleans knew it couldn't go deep in the playoffs without shoring up their defense backfield, hence the trade for Apple ahead of the deadline two weeks ago.
