Dez Bryant isn't the same player he once was-the last time we saw him, he was a step slow and still struggling with drops-but that's not a problem right now.
It turns out Bryant was smart to do so, because he's now in a great situation with the Saints, one that is truly unfair for the rest of the league.
For Bryant, the move means joining an elite quarterback in Drew Brees on a team with championship aspirations.
For a player with 531 career receptions for 7,459 yards receiving and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys, that scenario works in the Saints' favor.
The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, who has been looking for an National Football League home since becoming a free agent, will join one of the NFL's top offenses in New Orleans. I look forward to building a rapport with him.
That's a guy who's definitely sticking to his talking points.
Immediately Bryant jumps onto the depth chart as the Saints' second-best receiver behind Michael Thomas, meaning for the first time in his career, Bryant won't be relied on as a No.1 receiver.
Bryant, 30, previously held a featured role with the Cowboys, but that won't be the case in New Orleans.
For now, we'll have to wait to see how Bryant will be used in the Saints' stacked offense.
Rapoport initially said, "One second", but a moment later just picked up his young son, Jude, and put him on his lap as he continued to talk.
"I don't know how much carryover there will be from what he had in Dallas - it's probably not a lot - so that's a process".
