Dez Bryant Signs with Saints

Dez Bryant has finally found a new home. The free agent one-time All-Pro wide receiver, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys last April, has signed with the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 30-year-old Bryant joins a wide receiving crew led by superstar Michael Thomas. It also features rookie Tre'Quan Smith, veteran Cameron Meredith and second-year pro Austin Carr. Veteran wideout Tedd Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve in October due to a knee injury and may not return this season.

Joining the Saints allows Bryant to catch passes from future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees and gives him the chance to compete for a Super Bowl title. The Saints (7-1) have won seven straight contests, capped off by Sunday’s victory over the previously undefeated Los Angeles Rams.

Last spring, Bryant turned down a 3-year, $21 million offer from the Baltimore Ravens because he favored a one-year contract. He met with the Cleveland Browns in August during training camp and nearly inked a one-year deal, but the two sides never reached an agreement.

Bryant, a 2010 first-round pick, spent the first eight years of his career with the Cowboys. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2013, 2014 and 2016. His best season came in 2014, when he led the NFL in receiving touchdowns (24) and was chosen as a First-Team All-Pro. Bryant accumulated 73 touchdown receptions in his tenure with Dallas, the most in franchise history.

The Saints visit the Cowboys on Nov. 29, setting up the perfect revenge game for Bryant, who left his former team on bad terms.
