Dez Bryant Signing With New Orleans Saints

May JohnsonNov 09, 2018

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. The most impressive run of Bryant's career came from 2012 to 2014, as he topped 1,230 yards and 12 touchdowns in each season. They're also replacing the mediocre Meredith, who isn't much faster than Bryant, with an accomplished receiver.

Bryant could not have landed with a better team. The Saints play at Dallas on November 29. "Right when I got here, he took me under his wing". You're getting a very passionate individual. "That has nothing to do with how the other guys are playing". Like Colston, Bryant now struggles to separate from man coverage, but that issue is somewhat mitigated by his excellent ball skills, ability to outmuscle smaller corners (he'll see a ton of those in the slot!) and having Drew Brees, the league's most accurate quarterback, putting the ball in spots that make it easier to make those contested catches. Dez was a great player in this organization for a long time. "I know he can still contribute to a team and I'm glad it's going to be us".

"I'm really happy for him and that opportunity", Garrett said, via USA Today. He wants to finish his career strong. "It seems like a real good opportunity for him and I know it'll help their team".

Heading into Week 10, the Saints are second in the league in scoring at 34.9 points per game, eighth in third-down conversion percentage at 44.5% and sixth in red-zone scoring percentage (touchdowns) at 71.0%.

We have had three really good results and then a bad result. "The only thing I didn't like was the corner [for Brighton's goal]". Glenn Murray is their key man, having scored the victor in their last two home games and overall netting six of their 11 goals.

The Saints' most pressing need is for a slot receiver.

The 30-year-old Bryant spent his first eight years in the National Football League with Dallas and last season caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns, including a 50-yard scoring play, for the Cowboys.

Veteran Saints tight end Ben Watson said players in New Orleans' locker room must guard against pre-judging Bryant based on superficial observations from old television clips without knowing all the facts or how Bryant has evolved personally since.

Bryant's former teammates on the Cowboys wished him the best in his new gig Wednesday.
