Underrated Receivers for New Orleans Saints – No. 3: Dez Bryant

It seems like Dez Bryant is always been linked to the Saints in some way, shape, or form. Bryant actually was a member of the Saints in 2018 but tore his Achilles just days after signing a one-year deal with New Orleans.

Bryant didn’t play in 2019 but he signed with the Ravens in late October of 2020. He wasn’t the same force we once saw with the Cowboys, catching just six passes for 47 yards but finding the end zone twice.

The red-zone production is what the Saints could use Bryant for and he showed he could be that guy in limited action with the Ravens.

Bryant is 32 years old and nowhere near the same player he was with the Cowboys but as far as underrated options in free agency go, Bryant is at the top of the list for sure. He wouldn’t be the No. 1, 3, or 3 option in the Saints’ offense, but Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill would definitely be looking Bryant’s way in the end zone.
