Saints signing Dez Bryant is all about the playoffs

Dez Bryant and Jerry Jones will get to see each other again on Nov. 29

Dez Bryant is back in the National Football League and with a Super Bowl contender after agreeing to a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Now, Bryant is no longer the All-Pro talent he once was. "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". The Saints play at Dallas on November 29.

Dez Bryant has found a new team, agreeing to join the already prolific offence of the surging New Orleans Saints.

The Saints have shown they can win in multiple ways this year.

Jones also set off Bryant when he suggested in a SiriusXM Radio interview in July that there was added pressure on young Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott with Bryant and veteran tight end Jason Witten "in his ear".

The Saints are seventh in the league in total offense (402 yards per game), with a good balance between pass (289.9 yards per game; seventh in the league) and run (112.1 yards per game; 15th in the league). Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan didn't do almost enough to aid Bryant with the tactics we've covered here, even after it became abundantly clear that he needed that help.

Over his career, Bryant has just one game played in the SuperDome, catching one pass for 44 yards in a 2013 blowout loss, 49-17. After the move, Fitzgerald, who was 30 at the time, produced four seasons with at least 900 yards and six touchdowns. Especially if Payton can get him the same mismatches he was able to scheme up for Cameron Meredith, whom Bryant will likely replace in the slot.

For an idea on the lack of wide receiver production outside of Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr., who is on injured reserve with a knee injury, hasn't played since Week 4, yet his 22 targets still rank as the second-most among the wideouts behind Thomas. I got to hook up with him a couple of weeks back, and I saw the way he looked and he was - he looks like an animal right now. He openly flirted with the Patriots, though it's unclear if New England was crushing on him, too.
