Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is still a free agent, but it sounds like he will be back in the NFL.
If you were waiting for Dez Bryant’s return to the NFL, you might not have to wait too much longer.
According to Bryant’s twitter account, the veteran wideout will be off the market “soon.” The last team that showed interest in Bryant was the Cleveland Browns, and they reportedly offered him a deal worth less than $5 million.
The Cowboys cut Bryant back in April to save cap space, after eight year’s of service, which included 113 catches for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns. Bryant holds the franchise record for most touchdowns in Cowboys history and has the fifth most receiving yards.
At 29-years old, Bryant isn’t nearly same player he once was, but he could still make an impact on an NFL roster. After nearly four weeks of football, here are three teams that should consider adding the receiver.
Russell Wilson has been running for his life and has nobody to throw the ball to in Seattle. Through three games, the Seahawks’ leading receiver is Tyler Lockett with only 12 receptions for 196 yards and three scores.
Wilson’s number one option, Doug Baldwin, has only played in the team’s opener against the Denver Broncos, but was targeted once. He was already dealing with a knee injury, which kept him out of all four preseason games and then suffered a sprained MCL to his other knee in Week 1.
Baldwin is expected to play in Sunday’s games against the Arizona Cardinals. He should provide a boost to the team’s pass game, which is ranked 22nd in the league, but that won’t be enough.
There is a good chance Baldwin will not be 100% healthy at all this season. Therefore adding Bryant would be a smart move. He would instantly be a top target for Wilson and it will ease the pressure off of Seattle’s young rushing attack.
