Seattle WA- Free agent Dez Bryant and the New Orleans Saints are in talks with making a deal happen. A source that is close to Bryant stated that the Saints are very interested in him and want to make this deal happen as soon as possible. If the Saints could make this deal, this would make the Saints more dangerous than what they already are. They are 7-1 and are the division leaders in the NFC South.
The Saints are a very balanced team. They have a two-back system with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, which has helped out Drew Brees a lot. Brees has mainly been mistake free and now the Saints are second in the league with scoring 34.9 points per game because the run game has been very productive. However, Veteran Ted Ginn Jr. was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last month. Newly signed restricted free agent Cameron Meredith has not been very productive thus far. He has not been thrown at.
If Bryant and the Saints agree to a deal, this would give the Saints more depth at the wide receiver position. Bryant is still a physical receiver that can make plays down the field. You can put him in one on one match-ups, he can still make a big play or go get the jump balls. In his career, he had three consecutive seasons with at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns.
At the moment, the deal is looking promising, but things could change in a quick minute.
