New Orleans Saints Open To Bringing Back Dez Bryant For 2019
Dez Bryant was on cloud nine after sitting out half the season and coming to an agreement to join the Super Bowl contending New Orleans Saints as another weapon for Drew Brees to have.
It went downhill during the second practice with the team, when Dez tore his Achilles and his season was over, and likely his career with the Saints before it even started. Turns out, that second part might not be true.
Even though Bryant didn’t see game action with his new teammates, Saints head coach Sean Payton isn’t opposed to bringing him back next season if he proves to be healthy enough after he recovers from surgery, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.
“He’ll have a full recovery and I know he still plans on playing,” Saints coach Sean Payton told NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones on Sunday.
Bryant reportedly received interest from several teams in the league before deciding to sign with the Saints, including a $7 million-per-season offer he rejected from the Baltimore Ravens.
Dez is set to undergo surgery soon, and faces a 6-9 month recovery timetable.
