Over the years Sean Payton has always allowed room on his roster for one or two "head cases" or "difficult" players every year -- guys who maybe have the big egos or the checkered past histories (remember Shockey, anybody?). But Payton doesn't EVER let the inmates run the asylum, or allow them to become a distraction, and if the player ever becomes a problem, or if his head case issues become too much to deal with, or if Payton feels that football on the field isn't really the #1 thing for the guy, then the door is right over thataway (love ya, Reggie, and best of luck in Miami). Dez will understand all this clearly, it will be stated up front, or else he won't even be given an offer by the Saints.

Payton handles things with the occasional diva and/or player egos, in much the same way that Belichick handles egos on his teams. Think about a guy like Randy Moss, who is vocal and moody and often critical of his teammates, had attitude problems and played inconsistently on other teams. Moss has always done his share of gimme-the-ball whining and complaining, but he was always well behaved and productive/positive, during his time with the Patriots.

As long as Dez doesn't show up in the police reports as being arrested in the champagne room at the club or hanging out with the usual suspects at Republic at 3 AM, I think it's a great potential short term signing.

That's what I'm thinking a 6'2 target for Drew on a well Coached Team with great integrity.

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

If he helps this team, great move. If he comes in and divides the locker room along with throwing his typical hissy fits on the sideline, this could be a mild disaster.

Also, yes he had some issues earlier in his career but he is not Terrell Owens ffs. We have structure in this organization vs Dallas who has a owner who wants o play coach as well. On this ship, it Sean's way or no way. I am not anticipating any behavioral issues, especially this year. He wants to get payed, so he is gonna be a quire boy for now at least.

Drew is the leader in that locker room and I'm sure they will get on the same page on and off the field. If Dez wants the ball from Drew he's gonna' have to play nice.

Actually this is probably the interesting question. Honestly if Dez wants the ball from Brees, he's going to have to make himself available. Separation really was never Dez's strong suit. Much of his production with Romo was based on 50/50 jump balls. Brees throws the ball to the open man, and to the man he trusts. So it'll be interesting to see if he and Dez can develop to the point where Brees is willing to either throw Dez open, or throw a 50/50 ball like he used to do with Graham and trust that his guy is the only one to come down with it.
