The "X" has made it to New Orleans.
Newly signed wide receiver Dez Bryant was set to take part in his first practice as a New Orleans Saint on Thursday, and running back Mark Ingram shared the first image of the former Cowboys star in uniform at the team facility.
Ingram shared a looping video to his Instagram page, featuring Bryant wearing his signature No. 88 and in his well-known "X" pose.

The pose is meant for defenses, said Bryant in an interview with Fox Sports in 2014, as well as a message to those who doubt him.
"The biggest joy I can ever get is me proving a doubter wrong. I love it. I love it," he said.
Bryant joins a Saints team on the rise after a 7-1 start and a victory last week over the then-undefeated Los Angeles Rams. His signing also coincided with wide receiver Cameron Meredith being put on injured reserve as he's set to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery.
The Saints have added a new weapon, and the costs are coming into clearer focus.
The Saints are bringing Cam Meredith's season to a close.
