Saints sign Dez Bryant to bolster already great offense

Falcons Saints make free agent splashes on short week for Panthers

Since the end of last season, heavy speculation arose about the possibility of the Dallas Cowboys parting ways with their longtime number one wide receiver, Dez Bryant. "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". Many teams across the league would love to have those numbers. The Saints are scheduled to play the Cowboys in AT&T Stadium in primetime on Thursday night, November 29th in a Week 13 matchup. They're also replacing the mediocre Meredith, who isn't much faster than Bryant, with an accomplished receiver.

Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram have the Saints' running game locked down.

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. "He's just another weapon in our system and we find ways to use everybody, and you can even include Taysom in that mix".

Expect the Saints to deploy Bryant as a big slot receiver, similar to the role Marques Colston played in the offense over his long, productive career. Bryant spent the majority of his career in Dallas playing on the outside, though he played more snaps than usual in the slot a year ago.

Rapoport initially said, "One second", but a moment later just picked up his young son, Jude, and put him on his lap as he continued to talk.

By moving Bryant from the X-receiver position - the receiver who lines up on the line of scrimmage - the Saints will prevent teams from pressing him. "It's one of those things that's a process". Eighteen months ago, we saw "BBC Dad" become a viral sensation, as political science professor Robert Kelly discussed the ouster of the South Korean president when his two children wandered into his home office and into living rooms across Great Britain. "It seems like a real good opportunity for him and I know it'll help their team". "We'll have a plan for that as we go along".
