Regardless, it should make for an interesting reunion when Bryant and the Saints play at Dallas in Week 13 on Thursday Night Football.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith is being placed on injured reserve and will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Bryant now enhances what was already a very risky Saints offense, giving them one of the NFL's best red zone weapons since he came into the league in 2010.

Many have called Bryant "washed up" and "old", but his numbers last season with the Dallas Cowboys say otherwise. After the move, Fitzgerald, who was 30 at the time, produced four seasons with at least 900 yards and six touchdowns.

Bryant ended his eight-year career with Dallas as the franchise's all-time leader in receiving touchdowns with 73.

Bryant is joining a ideal situation for him to get his career back on track.

Sherman took to his personal Twitter account and reacted to the news that Bryant had signed with the Saints.

The Saints have racked up the seventh-most passing yards per game this season with 289.9 and second-most most points at 34.9. When Bryant, a former star, worked out with Cleveland, he briefly negotiated with the team but never came to terms. Having a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback in Drew Brees throwing him the ball can't hurt either. When the team eventually get its deep threat, Ted Ginn Jr., back, I'm not sure how teams will be able to defend this offense, which has already looked unstoppable without Bryant or Ginn. Meredith also hasn't seen a single target in the past three games.

New Orleans is hoping that Bryant can get up to speed quickly and form a lethal duo with Michael Thomas.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder was among the NFL's best in his prime. If he's on waivers in your fantasy league, he's a great option to add. Many teams across the league would love to have those numbers. Moving forward, Bryant will be a WR3/flex as he learns the Saints offense, but his value may increase.
