New Orleans Saints sign ex-Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, source says

Bryant spent the majority of his career in Dallas playing on the outside, though he played more snaps than usual in the slot a year ago. After the move, Fitzgerald, who was 30 at the time, produced four seasons with at least 900 yards and six touchdowns.

According to both the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Jane Slater, Bryant has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. After the free agent wide receiver signed with the Saints on Wednesday, Garrett and several players went out of their way to mention how happy they were for Bryant, who's expected to practice for the first time with New Orleans on Thursday.

"I don't know how much carryover there will be from what he had in Dallas - it's probably not a lot - so that's a process".

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. He signed his last Cowboys contract right after that, but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April. He had previously turned down offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

New Orleans (7-1), which has won seven straight and leads the NFC South Division, didn't necessarily need another receiver.

Results elsewhere speak to changes underway in other states that traditionally figure into the competition in presidential races. But is this similar to the " shellacking " that Democrats got during the Obama administration's first midterms vote in 2010? No.

The Saints have racked up the seventh-most passing yards per game this season with 289.9 and second-most most points at 34.9.

After waiting nearly three months into the season to sign a contract, Bryant, 30, is walking into an almost ideal situation in New Orleans.

"They're getting a great receiver".

I'm guessing those in the Big Easy aren't going to like this. "He's definitely a special player and I'm glad he got picked up and I'm glad something worked out for him". That's good for the sixth-best percentage in the National Football League right now, behind Cincinnati (of all teams), Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Seattle, and division rival Carolina.

Those numbers may not look as good as what fans have come to expect from Bryant over the years, but they are still a solid addition for an already dynamic Saints' offense.
