The Saints are already the most talked-about team in the league after taking down the undefeated Rams on Sunday. Now., it looks like they are about to attract even more publicity with their latest move.
The organization is reportedly bringing in free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant for a workout on Tuesday. The former Pro Bowler hasn't played a snap in the NFL this season, but his career is anything but over. He could potentially end up signing with a team that has the potential to win a Super Bowl.
The controversial receiver dominated defenses early on in his career, but saw his numbers steadily decline over the past few seasons. After the Cowboys cut him shortly after the NFL Draft, his waning ability and insistence on a big-time deal dissuaded other teams from bringing him aboard.
Now, Bryant has the chance to potentially catch passes from one of the best QBs of all-time. Even if he isn't the player he once was, adding Bryant could potentially be an underrated weapon for Drew Brees for the rest of the season.
Of course, there's always the chance he won't contribute enough and will become a distraction for the team. If New Orleans takes a shot on the 30-year-old, then it will surely be the talk of the league for the rest of the week, and the pressure will mount instantly on both the team and Bryant himself.
All year, Bryant has wanted a chance to prove that he has a lot left in the tank. It appears he finally has the shot. All eyes are on you, Dez. It's time to step up and show that you're not just all talk.
