WR - FA
Dez Bryant took to Twitter on Saturday asking QBs in the San Antonio area to workout.
“Any QBs in San Antonio... let’s get some work,” Bryant tweeted. It’s no secret the former Cowboys WR has been trying to get back into the NFL the past two years. He last played in 2017, catching 69 balls for 838 yards and six TDs on 133 targets. Still just 31 years old, Bryant remains hopeful he’ll get an opportunity to play in the NFL again.
Dez Bryant on Twitter stated that “Dak and myself just finished a great workout session... picked up where we left off.”
Bryant has not played since tearing his Achilles back in November of 2018 while participating in his first practice with the Saints. During Bryant’s time with the Cowboys when he was healthy, Bryant and Prescott played very well together. They combined for 119 receptions for 1,634 yards and 14 touchdowns, in 29 games between 2016-2017. Bryant is hoping to return to the league. If you have an open roster spot in a deep dynasty league, Bryant is worth a speculative add to see if he signs with someone.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters that he's not dismissing the possibility of re-signing free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant, adding "I’ve thought a lot about it in the shower.”
This could just be a glib comment from Jones, but the Cowboys do have two pending free agent wide receivers that contributed a lot to their 2019 team in Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb. Of course, it's to be determined what ability Bryant still has, but he's only 31 years old.
Dez Bryant says he is aiming for a mid-October return to the NFL.
Bryant signed with the Saints mid-way through last season but tore his Achilles in his first practice. 10 months later he claims to feel "way better" than he did before. A return to the Saints is possible. It'll be interesting to see how many teams are interested in the former All-Pro.
Albert Breer of the MMQB confirms that Dez Bryant tore his Achilles at Friday’s practice.
It’s what the Saints feared when Bryant went down with the injury. It’s a brutal blow for the veteran receiver who was practicing for just the second time since signing. New Orleans will likely be in the market for another receiver moving forward. Dez can be safely dropped in leagues where he was picked up. He has to be considered questionable for the start of 2019, and that’s if anyone even signs him.
