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.
Dez Bryant has found a new team, agreeing to contract teams with the New Orleans Saints. From the people who love this game, who've played, they can understand that about it being somewhat harder for other people to figure that out.
The odd part about this signing is that the Cowboys actually have to face Bryant this season. After the move, Fitzgerald, who was 30 at the time, produced four seasons with at least 900 yards and six touchdowns. Tre'Quan Smith, a third-round pick previous year, has the second-most receiving yards for a wideout this season for the Saints at just 214 yards. The Saints are scheduled to play the Cowboys in AT&T Stadium in primetime on Thursday night, November 29th in a Week 13 matchup.
"Each week we'll have different players in different spots, tight ends, running backs, but you're asking a question, I think, based on the other reports, so I'll get to the next question", Saints head coach Sean Payton told beat reporters Wednesday morning, shortly before word leaked of Bryant's imminent signing.
"Dez is a great player. Really happy for him and that opportunity", he said. "I also don't know what's transpired with him personally since that situation". He wants to finish his career strong, done such a great job for this organization, has been an impact player in this league over the course of his eight years playing. "I don't know all the dynamics", Watson said. Not surprisingly then, the league's second-best scoring offense (34.9 points per game) calls New Orleans home. "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". He openly flirted with the Patriots, though it's unclear if New England was crushing on him, too. That after Bryant's play for the previous three years had failed to match his massive contract.
