Even if he can't get on the field himself, Bryant can offer his Saints teammates support and advice through his long experience in the NFL. As NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting, there's legitimate concern Bryant suffered a torn Achilles.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced any details of Bryant's medical exam.
After being cut by the Cowboys in April, Bryant turned down multiple offers from other National Football League teams, before the Saints starting courting him earlier this week. "I won't question the man upstairs. this is the ultimate test. thank you everyone for the prayers".
Bryant had just signed a one-year deal with the Saints this week after spending the past seven months as a free agent.
Bryant said multiple times during the offseason that he wanted to play for a contender, which made New Orleans an easy choice for him.
Saints head coach Sean Payton got his chance to weigh in on the Dez Bryant signing on Thursday morning and Payton said that the veteran wideout has been on the team's radar for a while. Meredith was scheduled to have an arthroscopic cleanup performed on the same knee that required reconstructive surgery in 2017 and sidelined him all of that season.
