Dez Bryant shouts out Saints players for paying tribute to him after TDs
Dez Bryant never got to play a game with the New Orleans Saints this season after he suffered a torn Achilles in his first practice with the team, but his new teammates clearly have a great deal of respect for him.
On Sunday, two Saints players — running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara — paid tribute to Bryant after scoring touchdowns by doing Dez’s patented “throw up the X” celebration.

Bryant’s injury has the potential to be a career-ender given his age and situation, but he made it clear this week that he is not going to let it get him down. Watching teammates he never actually got a chance to play alongside show that kind of support for him had to feel pretty good.
