Dez Bryant Gets His First Practice in with Saints

CP-Dez-Payton-2560x1440-110818

Getting injured this late means Bryant is in danger of missing the start of 2019. I've always been a good guy.

Bryant rejected the notion Thursday that he would be a locker room chemistry concern.

Dez Bryant said he turned down opportunities to work out at other places, but wouldn't elaborate, then said about New Orleans: "Who wouldn't want to play with Drew Brees?". Michael Thomas, who is only 5 years younger than Bryant, said he's admired the veteran's skill-set and ability on the field. "You've got those types of guys- little baby goats around here". Last season, Bryant caught 69 passes, including six touchdowns, for a grand total of 838 yards and was tied for third in the league in dropped passes.

However, his professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices. He earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2014 when he caught a career-best 16 touchdowns.

Saints players sounded eager to see how Bryant might help. After all, he was asking for a lot of money.

Bryant joined the Saints after spending seven months as a free agent following his release from the Cowboys in April. Payton said the wideout is expected to make a "full recovery". Plus, New Orleans just took down the Rams.

But Payton added, "we felt like he did a number of things that we liked in the workout". Meredith had zero targets in the last three games for the Saints.

"I am going to be excited".
