Dez Bryant

This is a common name when it comes to who the New Orleans Saints should sign on the free-agent market, and it will be a common name until they do just that. The wide receivers need help in New Orleans.

Outside of Michael Thomas, they have been downright pitiful. When you think about teams like the 49ers having Deebo Samuel, the Seahawks having DK Metcalf, the Vikings having Adam Thelien, and even the Falcons have Calvin Ridley, the Saints No. 2 wide receiver is Ted Ginn.

Dez Bryant would immediately enter the Saints organization and become the No. 2 receiver. Given his production the last season he played in the NFL, Dez Bryant could be a serious asset to Drew Brees‘ already elite passing attack.

Next. What needs to happen for Saints to regain No. 1. dark

It is time in the season for the New Orleans Saints to spend some money and upgrade injury-ridden areas in the lineup. Either of the three would accomplish that task. If the Saints are looking to be a Super Bowl champion, they need to sign some short-term talent.
