The free-agent wide receiver has signed with the Saints, according to the Times-Picayune, a day after working out with perhaps the best team in the National Football League that already fields a laughably potent offense. If Bryant, also 30, has any amount of juice left we should see a similar spike in New Orleans.
He'll get the opportunity to play against his former team later this month, as the Saints are scheduled to visit the Cowboys in Week 13.
Last season was Bryant's best since he caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 TDs in 2014, which at the time was his third consecutive season with at least 1,200 yards receiving. He caught 531 passes for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns during his tenure, including 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.
If Bryant plays in this season's NFC Championship Game, it will be the first of his career. The signing has some far reaching dynasty implications, so let's take a look at the players involved.
The Saints have racked up the seventh-most passing yards per game this season with 289.9 and second-most most points at 34.9. When Bryant, a former star, worked out with Cleveland, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms. Having a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback in Drew Brees throwing him the ball can't hurt either. But things have been more hit-and-miss behind Thomas, with Ted Ginn (knee) out for the season while Tre'Quan Smith contributes some and Cameron Meredith has now gone catchless in three straight games.
Bryant has 11 red zone touchdowns over the past two seasons on just 18 receptions.
New Orleans is hoping that Bryant can get up to speed quickly and form a lethal duo with Michael Thomas. Sunday, they knocked off the Rams in the Superdome, staking their claim to being the best team in the NFL. If he's on waivers in your fantasy league, he's a great option to add.
"He just makes our offense that much more dynamic and obviously the question is who are you going to cover on our team now", fullback Zach Line told NFL.com. Moving forward, Bryant will be a WR3/flex as he learns the Saints offense, but his value may increase.
