Bryant arrives Thursday morning, and should immediately help the Saints' passing attack once he's up to speed on the offense given New Orleans has lacked a viable No. 2 wide receiver opposite Michael Thomas through nine games.
However, Bryant's professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices. A rising star in the league, Thomas has recorded 70 catches for 880 yards and five touchdowns in only eight games so far this season. "I don't know all the dynamics", Watson said.
Bryant, a first-team All-Pro selection in 2014 and three-time Pro Bowler, hasn't played football since being released by the Dallas Cowboys during the offseason, following a slip in production the past two seasons.
Meredith is the second Saints wide receiver to go on injured reserve in the past month.

During the preseason, Bryant had been inside the Browns facility but Cleveland elected not to sign him. New Orleans is one of the best teams in the league and he is going to be playing alongside one of the top quarterbacks of all-time.
New Orleans appears to be all-in on a Super Bowl run, with 39-year-old quarterback Drew Brees having one of the best seasons of his career as the Saints continue to make aggressive moves to fill holes in the lineup.
As for Bryant, one thing he might want to do before his return to Dallas on November 29 is purchase a few extra jerseys, because apparently, a bunch of his old teammates are hoping to trade with him after the game.
"I'm really happy for him and that opportunity", Garrett said, via USA Today.
Those numbers may not look as good as what fans have come to expect from Bryant over the years, but they are still a solid addition for an already dynamic Saints' offense. I think at the start of the season, we weren't in that position, and then all of a sudden a couple of guys get nicked up and there becomes a place for him.
