Already tied atop the league with just one loss on the season, the New Orleans Saints are potentially about to get even better.
The Saints will sign free agent receiver Dez Bryant on Thursday after he worked out for the team. The signing ends a season of waiting for Bryant as he hoped to find the right deal. The 30-year-old was released by the Cowboys in April after his productivity declined over his final two seasons with the team.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett expressed his happiness for Bryant on Wednesday when the news broke. “I love Dez. I wish nothing but the best for him. That’s a great spot for him.” The Saints were already a favorite to go to the Super Bowl this season and are ranked atop the NFL power rankings, so the question is, who got luckier…New Orleans or Dez Bryant?
Another question we have to ask is, should Miami have gone after Dez to help out their depleted receiver corps? With Devante Parker being a ghost, the season-ending injury to Albert Wilson, and Kenny Stills being week to week, it probably would have made sense for the Dolphins to at least bring the guy in for a workout.
It has to make you wonder why it seems like they didn’t even consider it.
