Bryant tweeted Friday afternoon, "Things was just starting to heat up for me".

Dez Bryant spent training camp, preseason and more than half of the National Football League regular season waiting for a team to give him a shot to prove himself. With Ted Ginn Jr. and Cameron Meredith on injured reserve, New Orleans made the bold move to add the former Oklahoma State product.
