Don't expect that Dez Bryant "X" just yet.
Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has officially inked a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, after reportedly turning down offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns earlier this season.
Bryant acknowledged a setback in a tweet Friday afternoon, writing, "This is the ultimate test". Although Bryant hasn't played since Week 17 of the 2017 season, he has made it known that he was steadily working out all throughout the offseason, and the regular season just waiting for the right team to call him.
But his production had been slipping in recent years as he battled foot and knee injuries; he had 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games last year.
Will Bryant, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys in April, similarly reward the Saints for bringing him aboard this week?

He's not alone in thinking more needs to be done to address people who are locked up for non-violent marijuana-related offenses. Counting Oklahoma , where voters approved medical marijuana in June, three red states have taken that step this year.
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 gonna be me, you know, who I am". The last time the two teams met, the Bengals won 27-10 at New Orleans in 2014. Payton said the wideout is expected to make a "full recovery". I'm not a bad guy. "You can ask my teammates - my ex-teammates - how I am".
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. "I love the locker room". Bryant came into the workout "a little heavy". "They're my family", Bryant said.
Bryant said he does not feel like he has something to prove after the way things ended in Dallas.
