Shannon Sharpe Equates Saints Signing Dez Bryant To This Patriots Move

The New Orleans Saints were able to sign Dez Bryant to a modest one-year deal

METAIRIE, La. - Dez Bryant said he'll leave it up to Sean Payton whether he plays on Sunday.

Bryant acknowledged a setback in a tweet Friday afternoon, writing, "This is the ultimate test".

The 2018 regular season has been one for the record books for Brees. Andy Dalton led the Bengals on his 24th career-winning drive and his fourth of the season, finishing the game with 280 yards passing and two touchdowns. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the injury occurred on the last play of practice.

Bryant joined the Saints after spending seven months as a free agent following his release from the Cowboys in April.

Thomas, for one, is excited about the idea of playing alongside a three-time Pro Bowl receiver whom he said he has been watching for years.

"I'm always going to be me, you know, who I am".

By the time the Saints decided that they needed a guy like Bryant, it didn't take long for them to come to an agreement. "You can ask my teammates - my ex-teammates - how I am", Bryant said. It's like family. Every locker room that I've been in from middle school, high school, college to the pros, it's always been like a family. "I asked him a lot of questions, and it's just cool to play with a guy like that".

Receiver Ted Ginn Jr. also is on injured reserve and can not come back until the final few weeks of the regular season, if he's ready by then. Less than a day after his arrival for a workout, Bryant beat out everybody and was quickly offered a deal so he could get into the Saints facility and get to work as soon as possible. "They're my family", Bryant said.
