Dez Bryant's patience pays off with ideal landing spot

  • Saints sign ex Cowboys WR Dez Bryant

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

The Saints, however, kept a close eye on the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Bryant after his release. Dallas selected Bryant with a first round pick (24th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State.

"The nice thing is we don't play them until December, so we will get an opportunity to see what they are doing with him", Panthers coach Ron Rivera said shortly after hearing about Bryant's agreement with the Saints.

Rapoport later reported the Saints would restructure left tackle Terron Armstead's contract - turning the remainder of his $10.2 million base salary into a signing bonus - to create cap space for Bryant's signing.

For an idea on the lack of wide receiver production outside of Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr., who is on injured reserve with a knee injury, hasn't played since Week 4, yet his 22 targets still rank as the second-most among the wideouts behind Thomas. No. 1 wide receiver Michael Thomas has shown out to the tune of 70 receptions for 880 yards and an absurd 89 percent catch rate on the season. With the terrific pass-blocking offensive line up front, this team has the potential of being one of the most efficient offenses in National Football League history.

Bryant is a three-time pro-bowler, now four years removed from his last 1,000 yard season.

When Bryant, a former star, worked out with Cleveland, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms.

Sources told the publication that Foxconn had initially prepared almost 60 production lines for the production of iPhone XR . It seems that Apple has realised that the demand of the newly launched iPhone XR is not up to the mark.

Soon after, Bryant tweeted several times that he holds no bitterness or anger toward the Cowboys. "He goes up and attacks the ball better than I've seen anyone".

"It'll be exciting to face Dez, especially with him coming to his home here", Ezekiel Elliott told reporters.

The Saints and the Cowboys will meet on November 29 in Dallas at AT&T Stadium.

Said coach Jason Garrett: "Dez is a great player". Really happy for him and that opportunity.

"I don't know Dez".

"It's not like you just hand him a playbook and expect him to learn it overnight", Brees said.
