The New Orleans Saints are without question one of the top teams in the NFL this season and are fresh off of a huge victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Not only were they a good team last week, they were able to sign Dez Bryant to help bolster their offense. Richard Sherman certainly seems to like the signing for New Orleans.
Sherman took to his personal Twitter account and reacted to the news that Bryant had signed with the Saints.
Go eat @DezBryant!

Bryant is joining a perfect situation for him to get his career back on track. New Orleans is one of the best teams in the league and he is going to be playing alongside one of the top quarterbacks of all-time.
New Orleans is hoping that Bryant can get up to speed quickly and form a lethal duo with Michael Thomas. Many have called Bryant “washed up” and “old,” but his numbers last season with the Dallas Cowboys say otherwise.
Last season with Dallas, Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns. Those numbers may not look as good as what fans have come to expect from Bryant over the years, but they are still a solid addition for an already dynamic Saints’ offense.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of Bryant’s season goes with the Saints. He is hoping to put together a big second half of the season and head into free agency with lots of interest.
Expect to see Bryant get into the action quickly. New Orleans won’t ask him to handle a huge role in Week 10, but he could become a major X-Factor later on in the season.
