After working out for the New Orleans Saints, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has agreed to a deal with the Saints.

Despite all that, there doesn't seem to be any animosity between the Cowboys and Bryant.

"I'm happy for Dez, happy he has an opportunity to go play and finish the right way", Garrett said. He apparently believes that's happened now and will join a Saints team that seems to be going all-in this year in a quest to get one more Super Bowl title with the immortal Drew Brees at the helm. Getting revenge on the Dallas Cowboys would just be an added bonus.

For a player with 531 career receptions for 7,459 yards receiving and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys, that scenario works in the Saints' favor. I look forward to building a rapport with him.

Ariana also performed her current single " Breathin' " during the episode. "I thought we were supposed to exit", She laughed. Ariana Grande fans are speculating whether the singer has secretly released a whole album under a different identity.

Sources told Schefter that Bryant, who will sign the deal Thursday, is comfortable proving what he can do for a contending team this season before becoming a free agent again.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Bryant, 30, has been without a club since his release from the Dallas Cowboys in April. "Definitely been a guy who's been on our radar for a while". Veteran Ted Ginn Jr.is on injured reserve with a knee injury. It will be interesting to see how the Saints, who have been one of the most creative and productive offenses in the National Football League over the last few seasons, use Bryant in the second half of the season.

Besides Garrett, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was also excited to see Bryant get a new job. Take the stuff that he's really good at, and then integrate him in the offense accordingly.

He still must learn one of the league's most complex offenses, but with so many playmakers around him, all the Saints should require on a weekly basis the rest of the season is for Bryant to be able to beat either a team's second or third cornerback. "I know he'll help their team".
