"There is certainly a skillset that he has that is going to be beneficial". "I look forward to working with him". "He'll be a great addition".

The Saints also worked out veteran receivers Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken on Tuesday before making the deal with Bryant. Last season, he notched 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns in his eighth National Football League year, all with the Cowboys.

However, Bryant's professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices.

Odds are that Bryant will end up addressing the old tweet at some point this week. "I don't know all the dynamics", Watson said. "So the great thing about a locker room, I think, is we take guys in and we say, 'Hey, what are you like now?'"

After a long, drawn out season that has seen the Dallas franchise leader in career touchdown receptions flirt with several AFC teams, the free agent wide receiver has landed with an NFC foe, and one that has a serious history of giving the Cowboys headaches. He averaged 91 catches for 1,311.7 yards with 13.7 touchdowns during a three-year stretch from 2012 to 2014 and still caught 69 passes for 838 yards with six TDs last season for the Cowboys. He signed his last contract right after that but has not approached that level of production since - a central reason Dallas released him in April.

New Orleans has proven no fewer than three times this year that the team is in win-now mode as Brees nears 40.

"It's big for him, man", Crawford said, via PFT.

You can't guard him, either, as evidenced by the 28 points he posted on 11-for-13 shooting. "We've still got a good group". He was a terror in transition, he was unstoppable when he turned the corner and he oh-by-the-way hit 3-of-7 threes.

Bryant retweeted a person congratulating him on landing with the Saints, who lost receiver Ted Ginn Jr. for the year.

During the preseason, Bryant had been inside the Browns facility but Cleveland elected not to sign him.

Bryant, 30, previously held a featured role with the Cowboys, but that won't be the case in New Orleans.

The Saints will play at the Cowboys on November 29. "Really happy for him and that opportunity", he said.

New Orleans knew it couldn't go deep in the playoffs without shoring up their defense backfield, hence the trade for Apple ahead of the deadline two weeks ago.

For now, we'll have to wait to see how Bryant will be used in the Saints' stacked offense.
