WR Bryant joins high-flying Saints

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.

Former Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is reportedly about to sign a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints.

"We know that Dez is a competitor and he's been a great wide receiver in this league for a long time", Klein told NFL.com. 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.

After nine weeks of the National Football League season, Bryant is set to join one of the NFL's best offenses, and it's a spot which could potentially benefit his career in a big way. He signed his last Cowboys contract right after that, but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April.

Meanwhile, how the Saints plan to work in Bryant during practices before Sunday's game remains to be seen. He previously met with the Browns and Ravens.

New Orleans (7-1), which has won seven straight and leads the NFC South, didn't necessarily need another receiver.

JUI-S's Peshawar president also confirmed the chief's death following an assassination attempt in Rawalpindi. He was the member of the Senate of Pakistan from 1985 to 1991 and again from 1991 to 1997.

In New Orleans, Bryant will likely be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver along with promising rookie Tre'Quan Smith, who posted 11 catches for 196 yards and 3 touchdowns over the past four games after Ginn was injured.

New Orleans appears to be all-in on a Super Bowl run, with 39-year-old quarterback Drew Brees having one of the best seasons of his career as the Saints continue to make aggressive moves to fill holes in the lineup.

Bryant now enhances what was already a very unsafe Saints offense, giving them one of the NFL's best red zone weapons since he came into the league in 2010. But let's sit back and enjoy the fact that, before we get to January, we'll be treated to a Week 13, nationally televised game where the Saints travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys.

New Orleans knew it couldn't go deep in the playoffs without shoring up their defense backfield, hence the trade for Apple ahead of the deadline two weeks ago.

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.
