I wasn't in the locker room with him in Dallas.

Despite all that, there doesn't seem to be any animosity between the Cowboys and Bryant. "I know it's important to him", Garrett said.

Quarterback Drew Brees echoed his defensive teammate. "I look forward to working with him".

Instead, the former Cowboys wideout will get to focus on what he's done best as he physically wore down over his last two seasons in Dallas - provide a big, competitive target for Brees in the red zone as the Saints seek to lock down a first-round bye in the playoffs and a clear path to the Super Bowl.

The Saints, however, kept a close eye on the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Bryant after his release. "It was more so knowing a guy like that is out there, and there might come a time when we could need a guy like that".

That's a guy who's definitely sticking to his talking points.

Timing was everything for the Saints and Bryant, leading to the two sides making it happen.

Yet he also indicated officials were aware of inconsistencies in the Saudi story so far: "We have our eyes wide open", he said. He also asserted that Saudi Arabia is determined to find the truth and is now investigating the killing of the journalist.


The Dez Bryant-Dallas Cowboys reunion that many were hoping to see simply never worked out. Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. went on IR on October 18 with a knee injury. They're also replacing the mediocre Meredith, who isn't much faster than Bryant, with an accomplished receiver. It's unclear what his role will be in New Orleans. Wide receiver Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara are both top-five performers in the league at their positions.

What Bryant provides, however, is another weapon for Brees to consider in one of the NFL's top offenses. Many teams across the league would love to have those numbers. Is it Mike T?

Colin Cowherd explained Wednesday on FS1 why Bryant should send a thank you note to Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon upon signing with the Saints.

By moving Bryant from the X-receiver position - the receiver who lines up on the line of scrimmage - the Saints will prevent teams from pressing him. Not only were they a good team last week, they were able to sign Dez Bryant to help bolster their offense.

For a player with 531 career receptions for 7,459 yards receiving and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys, that scenario works in the Saints' favor.

Meredith is expected to make a full recovery, sources said. "It's one of those things that's a process. I don't know all the dynamics", Watson said. "We'll have a plan for that as we go along".
