After waiting nearly three months into the season to sign a contract, Bryant, 30, is walking into an almost flawless situation in New Orleans.
Bryant will be a valuable addition for the Saints, who recently placed Ted Ginn Jr. on injured reserve. Boldin caught 65 passes for 921 yards and four touchdowns in the regular season, but he caught fire in the postseason, with 22 catches for 380 yards and four more touchdowns in four playoff games, including six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown to help beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl. "Right when I got here, he took me under his wing".
Snarky Cowboys fans might wonder if Garrett, on the hot seat of a 3-5 start, will be there to coach against Bryant and the Saints by Week 13. He goes up and attacks the ball better than I've seen anyone. Dez was a great player in this organization for a long time. He wants to finish his career strong.
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott said Wednesday that it will be "exciting" to play against Bryant.
Bryant hasn't played football since New Year's Eve.

Bryant's former teammates on the Cowboys wished him the best in his new gig Wednesday. But it also seems like a good bet he checked the Saints' schedule, too.
"We may or may not sign one", coming from Saints head coach Sean Payton might as well have been a translation for "Get in the film room now", because adding the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Bryant, who has 73 career receiving touchdowns and three Pro Bowl selections to his name, might make this offense virtually unstoppable. You're getting a very passionate individual.
"Whatever that looks like - and everyone has an opinion on what it does look like, but I'm not in the building". From the people who love this game, who've played, they can understand that about it being somewhat harder for other people to figure that out. I know he'll help their team. On Thursday night, November 29, Bryant and the Saints come to Arlington to take on the Cowboys.
The Saints needed another weapon. It's unclear if Thomas or Bryant will fill that role most often.
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. Bryant spent the majority of his career in Dallas playing on the outside, though he played more snaps than usual in the slot previous year.
