Dez Bryant Fantasy: Value of WR After Signing With Saints

Dez Bryant is finally making his long awaited, highly anticipated return to the National Football League by reportedly signing a contract with the New Orleans Saints. 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.

Here's how the rest of Twitter responded to the signing.

"I'm happy for Dez, happy he has an opportunity to go play and finish the right way", Garrett said. The bridges were far too scorched though, and now he has a chance to make playoff progress playing with Drew Brees and for Sean Payton. "I look forward to working with him".

For a player with 531 career receptions for 7,459 yards receiving and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys, that scenario works in the Saints' favor. I'm just hoping for the best for him.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection already showed signs of regression before being released by the Dallas Cowboys in April and the Saints' offense has been firing on all cylinders even without him.

That's a guy who's definitely sticking to his talking points.

Bryant retweeted a person congratulating him on landing with the Saints, who lost receiver Ted Ginn Jr. for the year.

Bryant, 30, previously held a featured role with the Cowboys, but that won't be the case in New Orleans.

Meanwhile, how the Saints plan to work in Bryant during practices before Sunday's game remains to be seen.

Sources told Schefter that Bryant, who will sign the deal Thursday, is comfortable proving what he can do for a contending team this season before becoming a free agent again.

As for Bryant, one thing he might want to do before his return to Dallas on November 29 is purchase a few extra jerseys, because apparently, a bunch of his old teammates are hoping to trade with him after the game.
