Saints make salary cap space for Dez Bryant by restructuring Terron Armstead

Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant

Bryant has now signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. A person familiar with the decision confirmed the move today, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the roster move has not been announced.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby defended as Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant gained extra yardage, in November 2017, after catching a pass in the first half of a game in Arlington, Texas.

However, Bryant's professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices.

Bryant has had a notable drop off in production over the last three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys that has seen him fail to crack 70 catches and 1,000 receiving yards in each of those campaigns.

The Saints are now 7-1 and the top-scoring offense in the NFC.

Not long after his release from Dallas, Bryant turned down a three-year contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens, according to several media outlets.

Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley also tweeted his congratulations at Bryant. The Saints are now second in the National Football League in points per game at 34.9 per game.

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.

Dez, 30, will get a chance to go up against his former team in Week 13, when the Dallas Cowboys host the New Orleans Saints in a Thursday night matchup.

New Orleans also has two games remaining against division rival Carolina (6-2). Moving forward, Bryant will be a WR3/flex as he learns the Saints offense, but his value may increase. I think at the start of the season, we weren't in that position, and then all of a sudden a couple of guys get nicked up and there becomes a place for him.
