Cowboys players and coaches react after Dez Bryant signs with the Saints

What Dez Bryant signing with the Saints means for fantasy football owners

If Bryant, also 30, has any amount of juice left we should see a similar spike in New Orleans. That after Bryant's play for the previous three years had failed to match his massive contract.

After working out for the New Orleans Saints, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has agreed to a deal with the Saints. "I don't know all the dynamics", Watson said.

The Saints face the Cowboys in Week 13, giving Bryant a matchup against the team that drafted him with the No. 24 pick in 2010, and the only franchise he's played for until now.

After the three-time Pro Bowler's production dipped last season - 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns - Bryant was released by the Cowboys with two years remaining on a five-year, $70m contract. He signed his last contract right after that but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April.

The Saints went into negotiations with Bryant's representatives with roughly $950,000 in available space, barely enough to cover his veteran's minimum salary of $915,000. He had previously turned down offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

The Saints, sitting at 7-1 atop the NFC South, will take on the Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 10. Richard Sherman certainly seems to like the signing for New Orleans. Not surprisingly then, the league's second-best scoring offense (34.9 points per game) calls New Orleans home. Really happy for him and that opportunity.

"They're getting a great receiver", Elliott said, Pro Football Talk. Like Colston, Bryant now struggles to separate from man coverage, but that issue is somewhat mitigated by his excellent ball skills, ability to outmuscle smaller corners (he'll see a ton of those in the slot!) and having Drew Brees, the league's most accurate quarterback, putting the ball in spots that make it easier to make those contested catches.

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.
