Dez Bryant is officially an ex-Cowboy. "I know it's important to him".
Quarterback Drew Brees echoed his defensive teammate.
I'm guessing those in the Big Easy aren't going to like this. I look forward to building a rapport with him.
The Saints, however, kept a close eye on the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Bryant after his release. "So we just move forward", Watson said. "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".
That's a guy who's definitely sticking to his talking points.
Timing was everything for the Saints and Bryant, leading to the two sides making it happen. But let's sit back and enjoy the fact that, before we get to January, we'll be treated to a Week 13, nationally televised game where the Saints travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys. The Saints also have free-agent signing Cameron Meredith, who's been unable to do much with the team, totaling just nine catches for 114 yards and one touchdown this season. 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. It's unclear what his role will be in New Orleans.
What Bryant provides, however, is another weapon for Brees to consider in one of the NFL's top offenses. After all, as Cowherd notes, the NFL historically has been a "copycat" league.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of Bryant's season goes with the Saints.
Bryant has now signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints.
Bryant ended his eight-year career with Dallas as the franchise's all-time leader in receiving touchdowns with 73.
Meredith is expected to make a full recovery, sources said. "It's one of those things that's a process". I wasn't in the locker room with him in Dallas. You bring him along and you want to put him in position to succeed, right? Seems like a real good opportunity for him.
