The Dez Bryant saga has finally reached its next chapter as the receiver-needy Saints have signed the former Dallas Cowboy to a one-year deal.

On the day he was released, Bryant blamed the move on the fact that multiple players on the Cowboys roster didn't want him on the team anymore.

METAIRIE, La. - Dez Bryant is back in the NFL, and he is joining one of the league's top Super Bowl contenders.

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.

Here's how the rest of Twitter responded to the signing. "I look forward to working with him".

Garrett was asked if he had been hoping Bryant would sign with a team that doesn't play the Cowboys this year and he repeated his first answer, which basically seemed like his way of ducking the question.

Bryant, 30, spent his entire eight-year career in Dallas before being cut by the Cowboys in mid-April.

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.

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

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

"It's big for him, man", Crawford said, via PFT.

Bryant's return to the National Football League with the Saints means he could play against his former club in a few weeks. "That has nothing to do with how the other guys are playing".

"I don't know how much carryover there will be from what he had in Dallas - it's probably not a lot - so that's a process". Seems like a real good opportunity for him.
