Saints sign WR Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant is back in the NFL, and he is joining one of the league's top Super Bowl contenders. The former Dallas Cowboys receiver has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, a source confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday. Bryant's salary was not immediately known.

Fantasy Impact: 

The signing of Bryant provides a slight boost to Drew Brees, who has another target to utilize. Bryant likely eats into Cameron Meredith’s workload. Sean Payton likes to have a speed receiver on the field, so TreQuan Smith’s role should be relatively safe. Bryant could become fantasy-viable if he’s able to carve out a big role, but there are so many mouths to feed in this offense that it will be tough for him to have any week-to-week consistency.
