Re: Saints sign Dez Bryant

I'm on board with the "hope it works out" mentality. It's low risk for sure and worth the gamble. If it does then the Saints FO look like geniuses and if it doesn't it cost us next to nothing as an experiment. So I'll chalk it up to worthy of a try with no downside. We have a strong leadership base and locker room.

Sean Payton has started to draw plays up on cocktail napkins again.

Re: Saints sign Dez Bryant

Now that's it done, what I can tell you is that the Saints vetted Dez Bryant hard months ago. Was told team cleared it through some players. They even asked Jason Witten and Tony Romo for their thoughts. He's been on the radar. Payton loves him.

Not a bad gig; first day on the job and your 7-1.

Re: Saints sign Dez Bryant

Hopefully Dez is matched up against safeties & #2 corners in the slot (played a bit back in 2016) . I'm not looking for him to be great, however defenses needs to know he's there and will command attention. Or maybe SP swaps him on the outside from time to time.

Having Mike, AK, Tre & now Dez on the field at the same time ... that could be a tall order for defenses to diagnose.

Can't wait to see how this unfolds on offense.

Agreed. I read today the Rams doubled 41 and 13 AT THE SAME TIME. What does that say about defenses respect for our other receiving options? You Payton saw it and I applaud him for making this move.

Donít expect it to happen for at least 2-3 games but Dez will make an impact and eventually a multi score game

Dang. The Rams double up on 13 and 41 and they still get 211 and 34 yards respectively. And I thought our DBs had coverage issues.

Good Lord that’s a nice deal for us! Dez turned down around $6 million/year from the Ravens in the offseason.
