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.

Even if he doesn’t get open, he’s going to take at least some coverage away from Thomas, Kamara, and the others...

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

The #Saints would like to see Dez Bryant get down about 5 more lbs but liked what they saw at workout. He’s been training w WR coach David Robinson working on his hip flexibility, foot quickness in short area spaces, intermediate route running and attacking routes harder

Actually, Brees does throw the man open, and not necessarily just jump balls. His accuracy allows him to thread the needle and consistently complete passes to receives who are well covered.

Physically, Dez is a lot like Thomas. I'm confident that Brees is responsible for much of Thomas' success. He's a good receiver. Brees makes him great.

Let's hope the Brees can to the same for Dez.

Being cut and sitting out part of the season might have been a very valuable learning experience Dez’s in addition to signing with a team that plays for each other lead by a GOAT QB and Head Coach who has a history of not tolerating any for before mentioned personal issue.
Nope didn't miss it, I was agreeing with you and elaborating with my opinion on him.

I say don't be concerned. Believe he was vetted very carefully. He's been on our radar for a while now from what I'm hearing. He is coming into an ideal situation. He'll play ball or he'll be gone, and I'm 110% sure that message was delivered.

Look, the guy wants to win, and win he will do here. He has a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. He knows he is in the perfect place to do just that.

Give the man a chance. We have the leaders in place in management, coaching, and on the field, to bring Dez into the fold. Winning cures a whole lotta ills...

Then I’m sure he won’t be here that long; I don’t see the team putting up with too much of that

There's still only 11 players. Do you think other teams didn't cover Cameron or Smith? They aren't going to double Bryant, he doesn't make everyone else suddenly open. Is Dez better in some sets that Meredith or Smith? Of course or we wouldn't have signed him, but remember folks, we didn't sign Calvin Johnson.
