What Dez Bryant signing with the Saints means for fantasy football owners

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. But fortunately for Bryant, patience proved to be a virtue as he's reportedly on his way to the New Orleans Saints.

The free-agent wide receiver has signed with the Saints, according to the Times-Picayune, a day after working out with perhaps the best team in the National Football League that already fields a laughably potent offense.

Seeking salary cap relief, the Cowboys released Bryant after last season with two years remaining on the receiver's five-year, $70 million contract. He recorded three straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, and he earned Pro Bowl invites in 2013, 2014 and 2016.

Bryant has had plenty of success against the Eagles in his career. When Bryant, a former star, worked out with Cleveland, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms.

Drew Brees now has yet another weapon at his disposal.

Ted Ginn Jr. was originally the second option at wide receiver behind Thomas, but he was placed on injured reserve last month due to a knee injury. Meanwhile, Cameron Meredith has been a complete non-factor, failing to register even a target in the last three weeks. The former Central Florida wideout has impressive speed and could be a great option alongside Thomas and Bryant. Perhaps he still has something left in the tank as he joins one of the NFL's best teams.

The Saints, sitting at 7-1 atop the NFC South, will take on the Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 10. He wants to finish his career strong, done such a great job for this organization, has been an impact player in this league over the course of his eight years playing.
