Packers not now interested in Dez Bryant

Packers not now interested in Dez Bryant

"I think Dez is certainly going to have plenty of opportunities", Witten said.

The former Cowboys tight end, who recently retired to join ESPN, appeared Monday on the "Adam Schefter Podcast," and offered a prediction of where Bryant ultimately will sign.

"I still think Dez can still high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League".

The former Dallas Cowboys tight end predicted former teammate and now unemployed receiver Dez Bryant would sign with the Packers, calling Green Bay a "great fit" for the Cowboys' all-time leader in touchdown catches, but the team isn't expected to pursue him, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

While the receiver room is crowded in Green Bay, Bryant would give the Packers a veteran playmaker to start opposite Davante Adams, and his skill set - which includes using physicality to make contested catches and create yards after the catch - could still be valuable to a team with Aaron Rodgers under center. According to Witten, the Packers check all of the boxes for Bryant, who is seeking a one-year deal. "I think it's a win-win for the Packers".

Playing with a future hall of famer in Aaron Rodgers can turn any WR's career around. You partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, and I think that offense can put up a lot of points. The Packers went away from their model player last offseason when they signed the polarizing Martellus Bennett, and no one can soon forget how badly that ended.

The Dallas Cowboys have made several moves this offseason to reshape their roster including a few cuts, headlined by the release of star wide receiver Dez Bryant.

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", Witten said. 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.
