Dez Bryant will get his chance at revenge with the Saints

Adjust Comment Print

The Saints face the Cowboys in Week 13, giving Bryant a matchup against the team that drafted him with the No. 24 pick in 2010, and the only franchise he's played for until now.

The 6ft 2in, 220lbs receiver recorded three straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, but his production was marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices. In 2017, his final season in Dallas, Bryant started all 16 games and finished with 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns. "I know he'll help their team".

Bryant had remained a free agent since his release last offseason by the Dallas Cowboys.

Immediately Bryant jumps onto the depth chart as the Saints' second-best receiver behind Michael Thomas, meaning for the first time in his career, Bryant won't be relied on as a No.1 receiver.

Basically, Cowherd believes New Orleans saw the success Gordon has had since joining New England and decided it was worth rolling the dice on Bryant, another polarizing ex-Pro Bowl wide receiver with both baggage and upside.

During the preseason, Bryant had been inside the Browns facility but Cleveland elected not to sign him.

The Saints are now 7-1 and the top-scoring offense in the NFC. Just two years ago New Orleans finished top three in all of these categories, and now that they have. They're also replacing the mediocre Meredith, who isn't much faster than Bryant, with an accomplished receiver.

Bryant's return to the National Football League with the Saints means he could play against his former club in a few weeks.

"I'm happy for Dez, happy he has an opportunity to go play and finish the right way", Garrett said.

"They're getting a great receiver".

The Saints understand that they are going to need any and every edge they can get throughout the rest of the season, and Dez Bryant pushes that red zone percentage even higher in all likelihood. I think at the start of the season, we weren't in that position, and then all of a sudden a couple of guys get nicked up and there becomes a place for him.
