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, 30, previously held a featured role with the Cowboys, but that won't be the case in New Orleans. Not only were they a good team last week, they were able to sign Dez Bryant to help bolster their offense. Perhaps he still has something left in the tank as he joins one of the NFL's best teams.

Bryant was among several receivers to work out for the Saints on Tuesday.

Bryant spent his first eight years in the National Football League with Dallas and last season caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns, including a 50-yard scoring play, for the Cowboys. We may or may not sign a receiver. 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.

New Orleans appears to be all-in on a Super Bowl run, with 39-year-old quarterback Drew Brees having one of the best seasons of his career as the Saints continue to make aggressive moves to fill holes in the lineup. But things have been more hit-and-miss behind Thomas, with Ted Ginn (knee) out for the season while Tre'Quan Smith contributes some and Cameron Meredith has now gone catchless in three straight games. He caught 531 passes for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns during his tenure, including 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.

Pot legalized in Michigan. Now what?
And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12 . Once considered a taboo product, a growing number of Americans support marijuana legalization.

Bryant will nearly certainly take over the No. 2 job from rookie third-round pick Tre'Quan Smith, who's totaled 12 catches for 214 yards and three touchdowns this season.

New Orleans also has two games remaining against division rival Carolina (6-2). Similarly, the team understood that a solid defense could key on Thomas in the postseason and leave them fighting with one hand.

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.

The Bryant signing is all about postseason play for New Orleans.
