Bryant practices with Saints, asserts he’s ‘not a bad guy.’

The team's injury report on Friday has listed Bryant as questionable for Sunday's game in Cincinnati with an ankle injury, but a person familiar with the situation says the team is still awaiting the results of a doctor's examination of Bryant. His injury partially explains why the Saints signed Dez Bryant this week.

Last season, Bryant hauled in 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

However, his professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices. He recorded three straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, and he earned Pro Bowl invites in 2013, 2014 and 2016.

In fact, Sharpe on Thursday equated Bryant joining the Saints to the New England Patriots signing James Harrison last season after the veteran linebacker was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers. "You've got those types of guys- little baby goats around here". "I've just asked him a lot of questions and it's just cool to play with a guy like that".

Haven't discussed anything with Whitaker on Russian probe
Trump said, "No matter who I put in, they go after him ..." McConnell said he expects Whitaker to be "a very interim" appointee. Trump named Whitaker to the acting position on Wednesday after abruptly forcing out Attorney General Jeff Sessions .

Will Bryant, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys in April, similarly reward the Saints for bringing him aboard this week? Payton said the wideout is expected to make a "full recovery".

Receiver Ted Ginn Jr. also is on injured reserve and can not come back until the final few weeks of the regular season, if he's ready by then. Plus, New Orleans just took down the Rams. Payton said Bryant is perhaps five pounds heavier than his ideal playing weight, which would be common among players who did not go through a training camp. We felt like he did a number of things that we liked in the workout. He could have made up to $500,000 in incentives for reaching specific reception totals: $50,000 for catching 25 passes in the Saints' remaining seven games after Sunday, an additional $100,000 for 30 catches, $150,000 for 35 catches and $200,000 for 40 receptions.

"I am going to be excited".
