Richard Sherman reacts to Dez Bryant signing with New Orleans Saints

Bryant ended his eight-year career with Dallas as the franchise's all-time leader in receiving touchdowns with 73. "I know he'll help their team".

On the day he was released, Bryant blamed the move on the fact that multiple players on the Cowboys roster didn't want him on the team anymore.

Last season with Dallas, Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

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

Bryant, a former first-round pick out of Oklahoma State, has been waiting for the right deal to come up and turned down an offer prior to the season from the Cleveland Browns.

The Saints, sitting at 7-1 atop the NFC South, will take on the Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 10.




Bryant retweeted a person congratulating him on landing with the Saints, who lost receiver Ted Ginn Jr. for the year. "He goes up and attacks the ball better than I've seen anyone", Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot said.

New Orleans appears to be all-in on a Super Bowl run, with 39-year-old quarterback Drew Brees having one of the best seasons of his career as the Saints continue to make aggressive moves to fill holes in the lineup.

The Dallas Cowboys did Dez Bryant no favors by cutting him as late as they did, and he lingered available through half a season.

"They're getting a great receiver". "He's definitely a special player and I'm glad he got picked up and I'm glad something worked out for him".

Bryant's return to the National Football League with the Saints means he could play against his former club in a few weeks.

"The nice thing is we don't play them until December, so we will get an opportunity to see what they are doing with him", Panthers coach Ron Rivera said shortly after hearing about Bryant's agreement with the Saints. I think at the start of the season, we weren't in that position, and then all of a sudden a couple of guys get nicked up and there becomes a place for him.
