Saints sign ex-Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant

A person familiar with the situation says free-agent Dez Bryant and the Saints have agreed on contract terms that will add the former Dallas Cowboys star to one of the NFL's top offenses in New Orleans. New Orleans also has its No. 88 jersey available.

The Saints win over previously unbeaten LA has solidified them as a threat to make the Super Bowl.

Several members of the organization said that they wanted quarterback Dak Prescott to be able to spread the ball around. Last season, he notched 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns in his eighth National Football League year, all with the Cowboys. And perhaps he can.

Now we'll just have to see if the Saints think so, too.

Where Bryant can help is as a volume receiver on short to intermediate passes, and in specific red-zone matchups either outside or from the slot.

Jamal Murray: Celtics Know 'I Was Trying to Get 50'
Up by two points with seven minutes remaining Murray scored eight straight points for the Nuggets including two three-pointers. Though Irving was clearly angered, Murray said that he didn't mean any disrespect to the Celtics with his final shot attempt.

The three-time Pro-Bowler has been linked to many teams this season from the Cleveland Browns to the New England Patriots, but has yet to sign a contract.

After that, it's a pretty severe dropoff.

Michael Thomas is their number one option, with rookie Tre'Quan Smith, Cameron Meredith and slot receiver Austin Carr also on the depth chart.

Moreover, you can bet that Payton already had a route tree designed for Bryant before this signing happened, and Brees had his own ideas to contribute.
