Former Teammates React as Dallas' Dez Bryant Joins the Saints
09 November 2018, 12:37 | Tracey Rhodes
What Dez Bryant signing with the Saints means for fantasy football owners
Garrett was asked if he had been hoping Bryant would sign with a team that doesn't play the Cowboys this year and he repeated his first answer, which basically seemed like his way of ducking the question. In 16 games last season, he caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns. If Bryant, also 30, has any amount of juice left we should see a similar spike in New Orleans.
The IR move could partially explain the Saints'decision to sign wide receiver Dez Bryant on Wednesday. "I know he'll help their team".
The Saints also worked out veteran receivers Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken on Tuesday before making the deal with Bryant.
Instead, the former Cowboys wideout will get to focus on what he's done best as he physically wore down over his last two seasons in Dallas - provide a big, competitive target for Brees in the red zone as the Saints seek to lock down a first-round bye in the playoffs and a clear path to the Super Bowl. He signed his last contract right after that but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April.
Meanwhile, how the Saints plan to work in Bryant during practices before Sunday's game remains to be seen.
Not long after his release from Dallas, Bryant turned down a three-year contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens, according to several media outlets.

On Sunday, Mr Mattis told reporters that some construction materials were already being moved to the border, including barriers. Already Monday, some 800 active-duty troops were on their way to Texas to "harden the southern border", said Air Force Gen.
Although the Saints (7-1) have a seven-game win streak and are the No. 2 scoring team in the National Football League, they are thin on proven receivers.
Bryant's presence in New Orleans figures to boost a passing offense that already ranks as one of the top ten best in the NFL. At the same time, New Orleans is without deep threat Ted Ginn Jr., who is now on injured reserve and won't be eligible to return until the final few weeks of the season, if he's ready by then.
The Saints also have yet to receive consistent production from Cameron Meredith, a former Chicago receiving leader who was acquired in free agency, but who also is trying to come back from major knee surgery that wiped out his 2017 season. The Saints are scheduled to play the Cowboys in AT&T Stadium in primetime on Thursday night, November 29th in a Week 13 matchup.
