Dallas DE Demarcus Lawrence Trash Talks the Saints O-Line “They Ain’t Faced Us”

The Cowboys defense will face its toughest test of the season against the high-flying Saints on Thursday, but their confidence heading into the affair seems sky high.

One matchup to watch is the game-wrecking Cowboys defensive front versus the Saints’ stout offensive line. New Orleans’ O-line is one of the best units in the NFL, plowing open holes for Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, and giving Drew Bress plenty of time to dice up secondaries.

On Tuesday, Dallas defensive end Demarcus Lawrence took a shot at the Saints offensive line when asked if it’s the best he’s faced all season, Kevin Patra of reports.

“I don’t know, (expletive) I got to see first,” he told Calvin Watkins of The Athletic. “They ain’t faced us. We don’t know yet, we can talk about it afterwards. I’ll be honest with you too.”

The fifth-year pro knows that to slow down Brees, et al., the Cowboys defensive front will need to be a difference-maker Thursday.

“We’ve been talked up as being the difference,” he said. “They’re going to have to match our intensity, (expletive), for 60 minutes straight. If you hit (expletive) in the mouth they ain’t doing what they regularly doing, and putting up 50 points, and they start to get a little distressed. So now you got them where you want them at and then (expletive) choke they (expletive) out.”

Injured Saints WR Dez Bryant Tweets Out Response to Getting Hurt

Saints receiver Dez Bryant responded to reports that he may have torn his Achilles tendon Friday during practice, calling it “the ultimate test” on Twitter, the New Orleans Advocate reports.

“Things was just starting to heat up for me… I won’t question the man upstairs… this is the ultimate test… thank you everyone for the prayers,” Bryant tweeted out.

The injury, which could put Bryant on the injured reserve list for the rest of the season, happened two days after he signed a 1-year deal with the Saints.

Report: Saints Set to Ink a Deal with Free Agent WR Dez Bryant

It sounds like the Saints are going to be adding another weapon for quarterback Drew Brees and the offense, as reports state the team is close to signing former Cowboys wide out Dez Bryant.

According to NFL Media, the Saints liked what they saw during Tuesday’s workout, and the two sides currently are negotiating a deal.

And if the deal happens, circle this date on your calendar: November 29. That’s when the Saints play the Cowboys. In Dallas. In prime time.

Once the season began, Bryant’s best play became signing with a team in November, getting up to speed over the balance of the regular season, and attempting to contribute in the postseason, hopeful to make the kind of impression in January that will get him paid in March.

Having Bryant paired up with Brees sounds like a match made in heaven, it now depends on how long it would take him to learn the Saints style of offense, as well as if he can keep his ego in check should things not go smoothly early on in the relationship.

Saints Looking and Three Veteran Wide Outs, Including Brandon Marshall and Dez Bryant

The Saints coming off their win over the previously unbeaten Rams, have been busy today, working out a couple wide outs, that being Brandon Marshall, Kamar Aiken and Dez Bryant.

All the players are very interesting in terms of what they could bring to the Saints receiving core, with Aiken being probably the most affordable of the bunch.

Bryant is an interesting story, as he talked to the Cleveland Browns during training camp, but didn’t sign there and now is still on the market, looking likely for a team that is going to make a deep playoff run.

As for Marshall, he was released by the Seahawks after starting two games for them this season, playing in six total. He had 11 catches in those six games for 136 yards with one TD.

Aiken played in five games with the Eagles, making six catches for 53 yards.

The Saints made a statement on Sunday, handing the Los Angeles Rams their first loss of 2018, topping them 45-35 in front of a wild crowd in New Orleans.

Drew Brees was magnificent, throwing for for 346 yards and four touchdowns in the Saints seventh straight win, and his favorite target was Michael Thomas, who caught a career-high 211 yards, including a late 72-yard score in which he gave a salute to former Saints WR Joe Horn.

Saints feature running back Alvin Kamara scored three times, twice on runs and once on a 16-yard catch-and-run, all of which came in the first half.
