Saints excited to welcome Dez Bryant

Report Wide receiver Dez Bryant to sign with the Saints Report Wide receiver Dez Bryant to sign with the Saints Dez Bryant played for the Cowboys last season

Despite ranking second in the league in points per game, the New Orleans Saints are thin at wide receiver.

Over the course of his eight-year career, Bryant has appeared in 113 regular season games with 99 starts, posting 531 receptions for 7,459 yards (14.0 avg.) with 73 touchdowns. 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.

"Dez is a great player", Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday, per the Dallas Morning News. But it took longer than expected for the wide receiver to be signed by a team.

But there's no denying Bryant's track record since being drafted in the first round (24th overall) in 2010. When the team eventually get its deep threat, Ted Ginn Jr., back, I'm not sure how teams will be able to defend this offense, which has already looked unstoppable without Bryant or Ginn.

Last season was Bryant's best since he caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 TDs in 2014, which at the time was his third consecutive season with at least 1,200 yards receiving.

One of the strongest teams in the NFC may have just recruited one of the most intriguing free agents on the market. You know Bryant wouldn't mind another big night in Dallas, this time in a unusual uniform.

The Dallas Cowboys did Dez Bryant no favors by cutting him as late as they did, and he lingered available through half a season. "He goes up and attacks the ball better than I've seen anyone".

Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford has actually hung out with Bryant recently, and if his scouting report is to be believed, the Saints are getting a guy who looks like an animal. "He's definitely a special player and I'm glad he got picked up and I'm glad something worked out for him".

Bryant hasn't played football since New Year's Eve. Looking ahead, Bryant will be able to face his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, on November 29.

"I don't know Dez". Really happy for him and that opportunity.

"It'll be exciting to face Dez, especially with him coming to his home here", Ezekiel Elliott told reporters.
