"There is certainly a skillset that he has that is going to be beneficial".

"It'll be exciting to face Dez, especially with him coming to his home here", Ezekiel Elliott told reporters. I think sometimes that's looked at the wrong way. I got to hook up with him a couple of weeks back, and I've saw the way he looked and he was. "He'll be a great addition".

Dez Bryant has found a new team, agreeing to contract teams with the New Orleans Saints. Last season, Bryant caught 69 passes, including six touchdowns, for a grand total of 838 yards and was tied for third in the league in dropped passes.

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

Veteran Saints tight end Ben Watson said players in New Orleans' locker room must guard against pre-judging Bryant based on superficial observations from old television clips without knowing all the facts or how Bryant has evolved personally since. "I know he can still contribute to a team and I'm glad it's going to be us". "I know it's important to him". "Right when I got here, he took me under his wing".

Bryant turned down an offer from the Baltimore Ravens in April. He earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2014 when he caught a career-best 16 touchdowns.

"America has not had a Muslim woman in Congress". "When I was coming to this country, I heard about it's promises", she said. Escobar, a Democrat , will take the seat in Texas' 16th Congressional District that is now held by Beto O'Rourke.

The much-anticipated news has officially arrived. After nine weeks of the National Football League season, it's tough to find a better opportunity than the one he landed. "He's just another weapon in our system and we find ways to use everybody, and you can even include Taysom in that mix".

New Orleans (7-1), which has won seven straight and leads the NFC South Division, didn't necessarily need another receiver.

Of course, Bryant won't be a focal point of the Saints offense the rest of the season. He will bolster a Saints receiving corps that has been without Ted Ginn Jr. since Week 5.

The Saints also have yet to receive consistent production from Cameron Meredith, a former Chicago receiving leader who was acquired in free agency, but who also is trying to come back from major knee surgery that wiped out his 2017 season.

Payton said Bryant was probably about five pounds heavier than the Saints would like - "and that's probably common without having gone through a training camp".

Expect the Saints to deploy Bryant as a big slot receiver, similar to the role Marques Colston played in the offense over his long, productive career.
