Saints signing Dez Bryant is all about the playoffs

  • Report Wide receiver Dez Bryant to sign with the Saints

Sources told Schefter that Bryant, who will sign the deal Thursday, is comfortable proving what he can do for a contending team this season before becoming a free agent again.

Players across the National Football League also expressed their encouragement for Bryant's deal, which will reportedly be for this season alone.

Bryant's chance for revenge will come soon as the Saints will face the Cowboys in three weeks on FOX's Thursday Night Football on November 29. Tre'Quan Smith, a third-round pick previous year, has the second-most receiving yards for a wideout this season for the Saints at just 214 yards. Bryant spent the majority of his career in Dallas playing on the outside, though he played more snaps than usual in the slot previous year. The signing has some far reaching dynasty implications, so let's take a look at the players involved. When Bryant, a former star, worked out with Cleveland, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms. Drew Brees threw the ball just 23 times in a Week 8 win over the Minnesota Vikings, and then turned around and threw for 346 yards in a shootout win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.


Ted Ginn Jr. was originally the second option at wide receiver behind Thomas, but he was placed on injured reserve last month due to a knee injury.

Meredith, 26, had been healthy for most of this season. But his play fell off dramatically previous year when he failed to register a single 100-yard game. The fresh start has helped, as the 27-year-old has 22 catches for 396 yards with two touchdowns in six games with New England. Smith has seen 16 targets over the past four games, scoring all three touchdowns in that span. Sunday, they knocked off the Rams in the Superdome, staking their claim to being the best team in the NFL. While Michael Thomas's emergence as a legitimate top-five receiver in the league has been great for the Saints, the team must be equally disappointed by the lack of production from Cameron Meredith. Dallas runs one of the league's more static offenses. Moving forward, Bryant will be a WR3/flex as he learns the Saints offense, but his value may increase.
