Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has found a new home.

After a tumultuous off-season for Bryant, who was cut by the Cowboys following a meeting with owner Jerry Jones in April, turning down multiple offers in May, and then leaving Cleveland without a deal in August, the former star wide receiver will be joining the New Orleans Saints following a 7-1 start, in the midst of a Super Bowl run.

The Saints have signed Dez to a one year deal. ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted that Dez want’s to be a priority in next season’s free agency period and is playing for a contender, “which also was important to [Dez].”

In case you are wondering what it will look like…

This is a huge move for the Saints, who are making aggressive moves, understanding that they have a serious chance for the Super Bowl. Dez Bryant checks everything off of his priority list. He plays for a contender, and get’s a chance to rip the Cowboys this season, which the Saints will play on Thanksgiving Day.

Dez Bryant is a New Orleans Saint… So now what?

Dez lands with a loaded Saints offense, now lining up opposite of Michael Thomas. As soon as the Saints get Bryant up to speed on the playbook, he will become the teams number two receiver immediately. Ever since the loss of Ted Ginn Jr, the team hasn’t really had one, and it was something they had hoped to address at the trade deadline.

This is a big upgrade over Ginn. Bryant is a big, physical receiver with great athleticism. He uses his length as an advantage over defensive backs.

Dez should provide a lot of big plays down the field for quarterback Drew Brees. He comes to the Saints averaging 14 yards per catch in his career, and has scored 73 touchdowns.
