I look forward to building a rapport with him. "He'll be a great addition".
The 6ft 2in, 220lbs receiver recorded three straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, but his production was marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices. Bryant worked out for the Saints along with Brandon Marshall and Kamara Aiken earlier in the week but left New Orleans without a contract.
And the news of Bryant's arrival in The Big Easy was met with excitement in the Saints' locker room. "I know he'll help their team". "I know it's important to him", Garrett said.
Bryant, 30, spent his entire eight-year career in Dallas before being cut by the Cowboys in mid-April. In six game appearances, Meredith has just nine catches for 114 yards and zero touchdowns. Just two years ago New Orleans finished top three in all of these categories, and now that they have.
"We talked about it during the offseason a little bit", Brees said.
By moving Bryant from the X-receiver position - the receiver who lines up on the line of scrimmage - the Saints will prevent teams from pressing him.
Apple reportedly cancels iPhone XR production boost

Bryant, a former first-round pick out of Oklahoma State, has been waiting for the right deal to come up and turned down an offer prior to the season from the Cleveland Browns.
The Saints, sitting at 7-1 atop the NFC South, will take on the Cincinnati Bengals on the road in Week 10.
After nine weeks of the National Football League season, Bryant is set to join one of the NFL's best offenses, and it's a spot which could potentially benefit his career in a big way.
On the day he was released, Bryant blamed the move on the fact that multiple players on the Cowboys roster didn't want him on the team anymore.
New Orleans also has two games remaining against division rival Carolina (6-2).
The Saints understand that they are going to need any and every edge they can get throughout the rest of the season, and Dez Bryant pushes that red zone percentage even higher in all likelihood. "He's a good player".
