Oh boy the news came out earlier in the day Tuesday that the Saints were thinking about signing Dez Bryant after he worked out with the team. Now as the day went on Dez Bryant and the Saints seem to be close to a contract agreement. What could this mean for the Saints? Well they have Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Ted Ginn JR, Benjamin Watson and now possibly Dez Bryant, they already average 34.9 points per game and 289.9 passing yards a game. Adding a player of Bryant’s dimension seems like it is for one reason and one reason only. Super Bowl LIII is in set and that is the goal.
Saints and Dez in contract talks?
The Saints can probably do it without Dez but adding another wide receiver who when Dak Prescott or Tony Romo was throwing him the ball tallied numbers like, 531 receptions, 7,459 yards, 14.0 yards a catch and 73 touchdowns. All with Prescott or Romo now imagine Drew Brees a hall of fame QB throwing him the ball. This is going to be a nightmare for secondary’s.
It is not official if Bryant will be on the team but a contract negotiation is in the works and it is said that after he worked out with the team he did not leave with a contract. But the Saints liked what they saw, this has happened already this year and Bryant has not seen a contact so nothing is official until the papers are signed and we see Dez in the black and gold next week.
Is Dez fit for New Orleans?
If I had to guess Dez does end up signing with the Saints but not in time for this week and we see him for a week 11 matchup vs Philadelphia Eagles. Is Dez the right fit for New Orleans? I think so, sure there is only one ball and already with Michael Thomas and Kamara there what can Dez expect to see in terms of production? I think he is a great fit, a solid end zone option, deep threat, causes mismatches for teams secondary’s, has veteran experience and plus pair anyone with Drew Brees who would not be good. Dez is not looking to come in to take Thomas’s job, I don’t think at least. The reason he wants to come to New Orleans is pretty obvious, he wants a Super Bowl ring and this team gives him the best chance to do so.
