Dez Bryant will get his chance at revenge with the Saints

"We'll take it one day at a time and see how much he can digest and give him parts to the plan and there's a third-down element, a red-zone element, a lot of different things that he provides versatility for". Garrett was asked if he had been hoping Bryant would sign with a team that doesn't play the Cowboys this year and he repeated his first answer, which basically seemed like his way of ducking the question. I look forward to building a rapport with 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 6 touchdowns in 16 games played last year.

"What matters is, what are we going to do for the next eight games?" said Watson, who played for the Patriots when running back Corey Dillon arrived with a reputation as a malcontent from Cincinnati in 2004 and helped New England win a Super Bowl.

Rookie Tre'Quan Smith has 12 receptions for 214 yards and three touchdowns for the Saints, who saw fellow wideout Ted Ginn Jr. placed on injured reserve last month and Cameron Meredith struggle this season. Getting revenge on the Dallas Cowboys would just be an added bonus. "I also don't know what's transpired with him personally since that situation".

The Saints also worked out veteran receivers Brandon Marshall and Kamar Aiken on Tuesday before making the deal with Bryant. He had previously turned down offers from the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

Broce said about 22,000 provisional ballots have yet to be processed, according to a canvass of county officials across the state. Brian Kemp says he's won, but Stacey Abrams says there are still enough votes out there to sway the results.

Even if Bryant isn't at full speed by that game, the Saints will probably do their best to feed him at least a few times.

Elliott said Bryant will fit in with the Saints and dismissed the notion that the star receiver was disruptive in the locker room or toxic in the receivers room.

The Saints will visit the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on November 29.

"He goes up and attacks the ball better than I've seen anyone", Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot said. I think at the start of the season, we weren't in that position, and then all of a sudden a couple of guys get nicked up and there becomes a place for him. "Really happy for him and that opportunity", he said.
