Dez Bryant appears on the road to completing what he said would be “the ultimate test”.

Less than six months after tearing his Achilles tendon during one of his second practice after signing a one-year contract with the Saints, Bryant posted a video to his Instagram on Monday running routes, making cuts and catching passes on the field for the first time since his injury.

“First time running in a long time…Building confidence,” Bryant wrote in the post.



The 30-year-old NFL veteran who played his first eight years with the Dallas Cowboys was brought in to workout with New Orleans Nov. 6 while the team was 7-1 and searching for more depth at wide receiver behind Michael Thomas while Ted Ginn Jr. continued to rehab from a knee injury.

I don't see it happening unless we are not totally healthy to start the season. Our WR roster has talent and if Meredith can come back strong we probably won't need Dez for anything other than insurance. If we do sign him I'm sure that he can still produce for us if he's healthy. Healthy is of course the key word here.

Re: Is a Dez Bryant return to Saints possible?

Why?!? We don't need him. We've got great young receivers now who just need to get their reps, gain experience...

You can't have HOFers at every position, at every level of the depth chart...

We've got elite players at the toughest positions and we're right up against the salary cap doing it...

Patience.

Not gonna happen. Why all the baggy clothing and who could he possibly beat out. I hope he does prove me wrong but this dumb video by himself about shores it up. He was a late season river dredge that should have stayed there.

Hopefully our young guys progress enough that we don't need Bryant.

I just don't see the "explosion" from Dez anymore.

I wouldn't mind bringing him in, especially if the WR production is going to look like last year I second it.

I hope he gets a tryout but I don't think there's much chance he could make a team. Good luck to him.

I feel really good about Tre’Quan Smith and Keith Kirkwood going into their second seasons. With MT, Ginn, Smith and Kirkwood there’s probably only room for one more and I really like what I’ve seen from UDFA Emmanuel Butler.
