Former teammate Jason Witten, the Cowboys tight end who recently retired to join ESPN for Monday Night Football, thinks Bryant would be a good fit on the Green Bay Packers. I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League.
"He's motivated and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers", Witten said. Dez Bryant with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers playing eight times a year at the sight of Bryant's most infamous play/non-play.
Bryant isn't the man-handler of cornerbacks he used to be and he was never a speed receiver to begin with, but he's still a big, physical receiver who wins at the catch point and will run hard after the catch. Losing Jordy Nelson in the offseason, I think it's a win-win for the Packers.
If the Packers were to sign Bryant, they'd preferably want to get it done prior to OTAs. Seemingly asking for too much money, Bryant's market has been ice cold, as he's yet to even make a visit since getting released from the Cowboys on April 13. May.
Other teams that were mentioned as potential landing spots throughout the free agency process thus far for Bryant were the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints. That's a vertical passing attack.
Here's five reasons why the Packers should sign Dez Bryant. "You need somebody that can stretch the field and [be] an X factor, and that's Dez Bryant". But he's going to partner with a great quarterback and have somebody that he feels like he can contend for a championship.
Bryant, who turns 30 on November 4, has not posted a 1,000-yard season since 2014. Bryant has regressed since signing a five-year extension with the Cowboys before the 2015 season, failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark and double-digit touchdowns in the past three seasons.
