It sounds like the Saints are going to be adding another weapon for quarterback Drew Brees and the offense, as reports state the team is close to signing former Cowboys wide out Dez Bryant.
According to NFL Media, the Saints liked what they saw during Tuesday’s workout, and the two sides currently are negotiating a deal.
And if the deal happens, circle this date on your calendar: November 29. That’s when the Saints play the Cowboys. In Dallas. In prime time.
Once the season began, Bryant’s best play became signing with a team in November, getting up to speed over the balance of the regular season, and attempting to contribute in the postseason, hopeful to make the kind of impression in January that will get him paid in March.
Having Bryant paired up with Brees sounds like a match made in heaven, it now depends on how long it would take him to learn the Saints style of offense, as well as if he can keep his ego in check should things not go smoothly early on in the relationship
