Report: Dez Bryant said he’d see Cowboys twice this year

Despite years of declining production, Dez Bryant should still be able to help many teams.

And he may want to get a little revenge at the same time.

According to Mickey Spagnuolo of the Cowboys’ team website, Bryant walked out of the team facility saying “I’ll see guys twice this year.”

The idea of Bryant bouncing back with Washington, the Giants or the Eagles is an interesting subplot, but only if the revenge makes him play the way he did when Tony Romo was his quarterback.

Of the three of them, Washington probably needs the most help at the position, unless the Giants end up moving Odell Beckham Jr.

  1. The new Dak friendly offense involves trading away all the draft picks to move up and select Barkely. Run the ball 50 times, pass it 10 (couple slants to Beasley and Hurns).

  2. Can’t see the Eagles signing him. They’d need to work magic with the cap. Plus I think he’d demand more than he is worth anyway.

  3. The decline in production is because there was an overall decline in QB play. Dak is good and he’s still young but he’s not Romo either. Some guys can sling it and some cant. If the QB can or can’t that pretty much sets the tone for the offense as far as throwing the ball.

  4. He was solid but not spectacular, definitely declining, and carried the ball like a loaf of bread. A bit of a sideline distraction too. Just can’t justify his 12.5 million salary, but it wasn’t totally crazy either. Probably worth around 8.5 in this market. Best of luck to him.

  5. I’d really like to see him in Nashville as Mariotas #1 target.

    Hopefully he doesn’t let revenge cloud his ability to see who’s most able to win. The Giants and Redskins aren’t winning anything anytime soon.

  6. Dak Prescott is an overrated game manager and I believe he is more to blame than Dez Bryant for the decline in his production from Tony Romo. However, I don’t want a diva on the Eagles so best of luck with Washington or NY, Dez Bryant! Just stay out of Philly except as a game day visitor…

  7. Eagles wouldn’t go near him. Not only their cap situation, but he wouldn’t fit their culture. Maybe G men, but that’s a big maybe.

    But the skins…I could see the skins getting all over this. Overpay a guy with questionable character…Snyder, all day long.

  8. He just said that cuz he was mad, why would you want to play for the Redskins or Giants and go no where because the Eagles won’t sign him. He needs to go to a contender like Jacksonville.

  9. Can you imagine Dez and OBJ having a slap fight on the sidelines over who deserves the ball more? If the Giants sign him then they deserve the headaches!

    Stick to what you actually know. Giants will be right back in contention this year. 2017 was a fluke.

  11. Can’t believe Jones didn’t trade Dez. Some team would have given at least a 4th round draft pick. That tells me it was more than a contract issue. It was likely too mane big egos.

  12. Only team in NFCE that makes any sense would be Washington. Him and Norman wouldn’t have to travel so far to go out on dates.

    Dez Bryant was under contract to the Cowboys, meaning any team that traded anything at all for his services not only got him, they inherited his $12 million dollar salary for 2018.
    Based on his injury, age and declining production, Bryant is simply not worth that kind of scratch at this stage in his career. If he refused to take a pay-cut from Dallas, where he professed to love playing, then he very likely he wasn’t going to accept one from any team that traded for him.
    Now, his old salary is no longer a factor. Dallas saves $12 million, and another team is free to sign him for a lot less, and won’t have to give up a player or a pick for the privilege.

    No one was trading a 4th for that contract.

  15. As a lifelong Philly fan, Id be ok if we made an offer at about 5m for 1yr and prove it deal as we did with Alshon. Can you imagine Alshon and Dez on the outside, Sproles in the backfield and Nelson in the slot? Man that would be all kinds of nasty for a defense.

  16. Why would teams be interested in a childish, over-paid, diva WR? He’s only motivated by money as evidenced by his drop in production after signing the big deal. Some team might sign him to a one-year deal with very little guaranteed money and plenty of incentives. I certainly wouldn’t give him a huge signing bonus or a multi-year contract. Frankly, I wouldn’t want him on any team I’m a fan of. He’s worn out his welcome in Dallas where they put up with everything. Seeing him going crazy on the sidelines would be enough for me to take a pass.

  17. There are 16 regular season games. I won’t ever mention playoffs or preseason. Getting yourself up for 2 games is not all that hard. What about the other 14 games during the season? You need to play at a high level for all 16 games. Dez hasn’t been able to do that in a few years.

    If any team is thinking about signing Dez, they need to sign Dez for 1 year based on his production.

  18. Not as a Dallas-hater (which I am), but more from a team health perspective, I simply can’t see Dez fitting in with the Eagles team culture e.g. very team/goal focused, grounded, we-not-me approach (remind you of someone recently in the HOF?). Secondly, while DAK has his faults, Dez failed to execute on many occasions – so many dropped passes. Finally, this may be the ripping off the Garrett band-aid farewell tour. Fly Eagle Fly!
