Saints’ Dez Bryant contract details have been released

Dez Bryant, Saints

Dez Bryant has finally found a new home with the New Orleans Saints and there is a lot of hype surrounding him. Even though many don’t think he will be a major impact player for the Saints, it has not stopped fans from being excited to see the former superstar return to the field.

For those who have been wondering what kind of contract the Saints signed Bryant to, the details have finally been released by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Needless to say, New Orleans is giving Dez Bryant a “prove it” contract. Bryant knows that he wasn’t going to get paid much this season after being cut by the Dallas Cowboys, but he will have an excellent opportunity to get things back on track this year.

Playing with Drew Brees is going to be a massive upgrade for Bryant from Dak Prescott. Dallas may be happy with what they are getting from Prescott, but he certainly did not help Bryant’s numbers. Brees is one of the most lethal quarterbacks in the NFL and Bryant should be able to get his numbers up.

New Orleans is one of the best teams in the NFL this season. They were also able to defeat the previously undefeated Los Angeles Rams last week. Adding a talent like Bryant to an already dangerous offense should be worrisome for opposing defenses.

Last season with the Cowboys, Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns. If he can still play at the level he was at last season, Bryant will be a nice pickup for the Saints.

Expect to see him get up to speed in Sean Payton’s offense quickly. He may not get on the field this week, but it won’t be long before he is in the lineup.
