Dez Bryant ready to sign with New Orleans Saints

Dez Bryant

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis is more or less legendary in his ability to navigate the salary cap, and he's done it again in signing former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. They took on Teddy Bridgewater's contract-one larger than they usually pay for a backup-for insurance for Brees while sending away their third-round pick.

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. His 7,459 career receiving yards rank fifth in team history. But his play fell off dramatically past year when he failed to register a single 100-yard game.

Gordon was traded to the Patriots from the Cleveland Browns in September after several tumultuous seasons in which he was suspended multiple times for failed drug tests.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the contract will be signed on Thursday.

But here's the thing: the other guys aren't playing that well.

Cameron Meredith hasn't been targeted in three straight games, and rookie Tre-Quan Smith has 12 catches on the season despite appearing in eight games with four starts.

But, just as the song says, Grande knows how to handle the pain. "I thought we were supposed to exit", She laughed. At one point, she climbed on top of a chair and almost fell on her way down.

The New Orleans Saints, the Eagles' opponent in two weeks, have reportedly added a receiver of their own. 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.

But his production had been slipping in recent years as he battled foot and knee injuries; he had 69 catches for 838 yards and 6 touchdowns in 16 games played last year.

On one hand, the obvious answer is yes.

The good news for the Eagles is that they already have a quality defense.

The Bryant signing is all about postseason play for New Orleans.

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.
