Jason Witten thinks Dez Bryant will be a Packer

Getty Images

The most famous catch of Dez Bryant‘s career was a non-catch in Green Bay. Now he may get many more chances to catch passes in Green Bay.

That’s the word from former teammate Jason Witten, who said on Adam Schefter’s podcast that he’s expecting Bryant to end up with the Packers.

“I think he’s going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers,” Witten said, via the Star-Telegram. “I think that’s a great spot for him. Aaron Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well, and Dez [can have] great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants.”

The Packers have already made two big changes to their passing game, with the departure of Jordy Nelson and the arrival of Jimmy Graham, and Witten thinks Bryant could be a huge plus.

“I still think Dez can still high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League,” Witten said. “You partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, and I think that offense can put up a lot of points. . . . I think it’s a win-win for the Packers.”

Bryant has not drawn much interest since the Cowboys cut him. Perhaps the Packers are the team to give his career a second act.

  1. If the Packers are going to have 3 high-paid receivers wish they would’ve kept Jordy, instead. Don’t think this will happen. Rodgers will continue making stars of the young guys at #3,4 & 5 over the next few years.

  2. After watching All or Nothing I can see why he hasn’t drawn much interest. That one conversation he had with an assistant coach does not come off well for him. Talk about a bad edit for someone. I hope he signs on somewhere because when he is good he is fun to watch.

  3. If her is looking for a one year contract at a deal to show he still has it – then I would like to see Green Bay bring him in. As long as he can keep his ‘tude in line. Green Bay is a place that doesnt let attitudes control the locker room though. Just ask Martelius. I think it would be a good trial. More Rodgers weapons. While giving the young group a WR’s a year to get up to speed as well. Hmmm – interesting.

  4. Lmao. He will have Kizer throwing to him most of the season after Minnesota’s Defense lights up Mr Patrick.

  5. Dez is no dummy. He will wait until some team loses their guy to injury, all of a sudden he is worth more and more. That said, I am not sad he is gone from my team. I really do think he is a good guy, and that all his BS comes from a passion for winning. I also think he is his own worst enemy and never overcame the demons from his childhood. It’s a shame, he could have been one of the all time greats. I wish him nothing but the best.

  6. Green Bay won’t take him unless he is cheap. As a Vikings fan I wouldn’t even care about this signing. Rodgers is good with whoever he has at receiver. They could get someone off the street and they would do fine. I think Xavier Rhodes would be able to handle Dez easily.

  7. I wouldn’t be against it. He wouldn’t be the first player to be regenerated late in his career. He will need to keep his mouth shut and his nose clean. That won’t be easy for him and a big risk for the Packers. Ask Aaron. See what he thinks.

  8. Playing with Rodgers could do wonders for his career resurrection. Vet minimum plus an agreement from Packers not to franchise him should suffice

  9. The year he was drafted everyone thought Denver was stupid for not taking him and taking Demaryius instead. I think Denver definitely won on that one.

  10. That’s why the Packers just invested 3 draft picks at WR in April. All three are relatively tall (6’3″ or taller), and two of the three are burners. Now, none of that translates into production in Year 1 but why would the Packers hold back the development of 3 draft picks just to accommodate a Diva?

    Anything is possible, this one is very unlikely.

  11. Dez needs to realize at this point his value is dropping daily. If he wants to cash in, his best chance is to sign a moderate one year deal with a team that puts him in the best position to be personally successful next year and be able to increase his value going into the next FA period. Otherwise he’s going to be waiting for a big payday that just won’t come. His skills are declining, he carries baggage and his suitors have already started to move on.

  12. Boy the fanbase is going to be really pissed if they give Dez the same money Jordy got in Oakland.

  13. It gets pretty cold in Green Bay. I don’t see Dez, who’s probably going to have to close to the minimum at this point, playing in the cold for cheap.

  14. I have absolutely no desire for that train wreck to happen.
    Dez simply wouldn’t be a good fit in that locker room or on this team.
    His skill level just doesn’t excuse his temperament or his explosive personality.
    I honestly wonder if it ever did.

    If Green Bay truly wanted an aging wide receiver with diminishing skills, they would have just redone Jordy’s contract with a more comparable number.
    A far better teammate, who already fit into the offense and still had significant value on the field.

    Dez should just sit tight and wait for the inevitable preseason injury and for some GM to push the panic button.
    It always happens sooner or later and then everybody can just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.
    And you can believe, it will be a spectacle.

  15. Viking fans showing their insecurity. Don’t worry about Dez to the Pack. They already have Adams, Cobb, Graham. Add to that rookies Moore, Valdes-Scantling and St. Brown. All above 6’4 and lightning fast. There are already plenty of weapons on hand for the NFL’s top QB to play with.

    Dez may be a afterthought pick up on the cheap for The Pack but they don’t need him.

    Get ready to look up at Green Bay all season Viking fans. 5 of the last 8 North titles and just keep getting better. Road to #14 World Championship has already begun.

  16. When it comes to guys like Dez and Adrian Peterson, it’s not a question of where they fit, it’s a question of how much they want to make. Figure that out and then we can start talking about teams.

  17. I think he meant to say he thinks Dez will be a greeter at WalMart.

    Sure, he could be a good receiver. The problem is you have Dez’s six-year old alter ego roaming the sidelines having a meltdown whenever the QB doesn’t throw him the ball on every play. That’s the reason he’s still looking for a job. Oh, and the fact he turned down the only offer he had because he’s…..well, he’s Dez.

  18. if only he was 10 yrs older and had a few felonies he’d be team captain of the Chuckys…….raiders !!!!!

  19. One year prove-it deal with low dollars is the only thing that really makes sense. Will Dez take a deal like that?

    Dez has the potential poison a pool of young WR’s & eventually blow up a locker room by trading petty, smug comments back & forth in the media with Rodgers & McCarthy.

    DT is SOFT though.

  21. “Dez [can have] great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants.”

    Can’t count how much tape I’ve seen of Dez and Witt get overthrown/underthrown by Dak and then shoot a glare at Garrett like “Really?”

    Dak can do some really interesting things, but he’s got a lot of growing to do. If Romo was healthy, Dez would still be on the roster

    I love posts like this. It will make make the physical beat down of the Packers in game 2 even funnier. If you’re waiting for your 2010 team to walk through the door just keep waiting. I don’t think that would even matter against the most stacked team in the league.

    I know you all laughed when you read this but he really believes it.

  24. Wait, a subpar player is still a free agent and can’t find a team to sign him? COLLUSION!

  25. Rodgers is good enough to make average WRs look good. I’m sure Bryant would do well in the offense. But I’m not sure the Packers want the locker room headache and sideline distractions that come with Dez. Go back to my first comment….Rodgers can make most any WR look good. Sign a young project and go that route.

    Cut the best WR of the Rodgers-era, and sign this underperfoming clown?

    HARD pass.

    _________________________________________

    Agree… What an insult it would be to Jordy Nelson. They let him go and bring in this head case? Unless they want that locker room turned upside-down, the Packers should just leave Bryant where he is-unemployed.

  27. I could envision Dez as a Packer. Best place for him would be a team with a bad defense, good qb, and a true #1 so that Dez could get easy coverage and put up big numbers in a one year prove it deal. That way he gets the big contract the following year. Lions or Indy would fit that bill ( provide Luck comes back ).

    ***

    I’m not sure this makes sense for the Packers. If they signed him, it would be for a very short term deal and Dez does not fit the personality of that organization. He’s aging and cannot separate like he used to. Rodgers can make any WR look good and they have youth at that position.

    ÷÷÷÷÷÷

    This is true for free agents like Dez that no other team has any interest in. Congratulations.

  30. He’s been done for 2 years. Nobody is going to give him what he thinks he’s worth. He’s not getting a one year prove it deal, and then cash in. NFL teams realize he is not going to change, and eventually his immaturity will shine thru. He should of taken the Ravens offer. His agent is just as dumb as he is.

  31. Not going to happen, as the Packers have no interest in this headcase.

    He will end up with the Panthers or the Texans, IMO.

  32. Jason Witten must hate Dez Bryant.

    But seriously Dez is not what he used to be and people think he will end up on the Packers because they have the only roster so devoid of WR talent that that is the only place possible for Dez at this point. I mean have you seen those 3 late round WRs the Packers are going to be putting out there?

  33. Yeah seems very unlikely, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he made an improvement to the Packers offense if it did happen. Of course he’d have to take less than what the Ravens offered.

  34. “It will make make the physical beat down of the Packers in game 2 even funnier. If you’re waiting for your 2010 team to walk through the door just keep waiting. I don’t think that would even matter against the most stacked team in the league.”

    Oh come on, man! “The most stacked team in the league” needed the dumbest play of the year to win at the buzzer at home and then got slapped from one side of the field to the other in the NFCCG? You better check the expiration date on your lutefisk!

    Or…….they just enjoy picking fights.

  37. I can see this happening but only in this scenario.(1) One year cheap prove myself contract, so he can get better money at the beginning of free agency next year. (2)The Packers are able to keep enough roster spots for the new drafted receivers. (3)Unfortunately, and I don’t want to see it, but they move on from either Montgomery or Cobb. I don’t think he would be a locker room problem. He is pridefull, to say the least, but if he believes he still has it, maybe this would be the right spot for a year. 25% chance it happens.

  38. It’s not a bad idea. He won’t be the first or second option but he’s still a good target in the red zone, an area The Packers have struggled in the last couple of years.

    ———–

    Pretty sure none of us are insecure after a 13-3 season. I would think GB fans would be getting a tad anxious thou. #12 is the main reason your team is even competitive. If he isn’t the same after his shoulder surgery you could all be the worst team in the NFC North unless some of these rookies end up being immediate contributors. Which is possible. But until we see it happen it’s hard to know.

    The Packers haven’t been dominated over the Vikings since 2013 when Christian Ponder was still our QB and when our defense was old and Zimmer wasn’t here. Since Zimmer the Vikings and Packers have the same record win – loss wise. Zimmer drafts corners every year, and always has this defense in the top 5 because he know the only hope to make the playoffs is to limit Rodgers.

    All likeness it should be a battle between the two clubs provided that neither GB and MN have major injuries. As long as Zimmer has his defense, Rodgers hasn’t dominated the purple any year.

  40. Jimmy Graham is basically the same player and the Packers just drafted 3 WRs. Witten isn’t dumb so I wonder what he is basing this on other than it would be good for Bryant. They just cut an older WR because he was slowing down, why bring in another?

  41. Doesn’t make much sense given the Packers’ draft and the fact that they already dumped one formerly decent WR that lost a step.

    The Pack will be improved this year without Bryant — should be an entertaining season in the NFCN.

    =================================

    yea im not so sure. demaryius thomas is way too soft for a big WR. and he drops about as many passes as dez.

  43. That 3 years and 21 million from the Ravens is looking pretty good about now isnt it Dez? League minimum to play on a team whose quarterback is held together with nuts and bolts.

    Packers, most overhyped over rated do nothing team in the NFL next to the Colts. Which only makes sense as their quarterbacks are the most overhyped and over rated.

  44. A meat packer? Because the GB Packers don’t tolerate tantrums unless you’re the guy that starts under center; and those are controlled, positive outburst that serve to redirect the team.

  45. I hope they do get him so it will hurt their salary cap situation. Let’s face it, the Packers are pathetic without Rodgers and are even mediocre with him. They have one of the worst defenses in the league and a overrated head coach as well. They will be 3rd in the division this year behind Minnesota and Detroit. DISCOUNT DOUBLE CHOKE!!!!

    I was thinking the same thing about you recently. Nothing but disparaging comments aimed at other people with no substance in your posts.

    Carry on….

  52. Dez is his own commodity. Right now he’s first-hand living through what we in the business world refer to as a market correction. This is the difference between what he is asking for his services, and what a team is willing to pay. As time passes, his value decreases. His next contract is at the intersection of the least amount he’s willing to accept, and the most another team is willing to pay.

  53. Did anyone else not watch Jordy quit last year? The guys facial expressions said it all. “Without my HOF QB I’m not very good or fast enough anymore to beat most DB’s”

    He ripped off the Raiders. Mark my words he may not even finish the season there.

    He’s more done than Dez, and I liked Jordy.
    ======

    116 rec, 1487 yards, 20 tds with healthy Rodgers the last 21 games.. 21 tds counting the 2016 Playoffs.

    Probably not the gamebreaker he was in 2011… but I’d bet on him to out-produce any Packer pass catcher not named Adams.

    … if you want to talk about dropoff, Cobbs is MUCH more drastic.

    Don’t disagree with most of that.

    I was shocked Cobb was not the first casualty. Should still be gone at his price.

    My thought is the way Jordy played and looked on the field with Hundley was an issue. Second, without perfectly thrown balls he will not be productive. That was proven last year as DB’s seem to be all over him.

    I still think he is not going to have a good year, and will either be injured or cut.

    Stick a fork in him.

  55. I can totally see Dez playing on a “1-year prove it to me deal”. Who better to do that with than Aaron Rodgers? Makes sense for both teams. I personally think the guy is done, but if he has a great season and keeps his mouth shut then he’ll be in much better position to get a more lucrative multi-year deal. As it stands now, there isn’t a team out there that’s going to take their chances on him. A player suspected of being on the decline is just like a player coming off an injury. He needs to re-establish himself. He may not be done. It may be more than a coincidence that he started struggling when Dak Prescott became his quarterback.

    I'm okay with Dez doing a 1 year prove it deal. But will his big fat ego be able to accept that ? And he's so often injured and out of the line up. And how could he possibly accept little ol' Green Bay on his off time ? We are No Cultural Destination for blacks, …… far from it.

    If coaches/personnel people think Jordy quit, it makes sense why they cut him.

    I don’t believe that, myself.

    Cobb could rebound. It will be tough to cover the middle of the field with both he and Graham working in there.

    But I’m pretty sure we’ve already seen his best (2014) and we’re 3 years and will be $38,000,000 removed from it after this year.

    —————

    The Vikings most balanced team was last year. The 1998 team was great on offense and terrible on defense (Similar to the current Packers. How’s that working? Score 30 points or lose recipe?). I’d much rather have the team we have now with a solid defense, good play makers on offense, a good running game, good TE, and as long as we have a decent QB we can win games. The 2017 Vikings are one of the most Balanced Vikings teams since the 70’s. Much rather have a defense in the top 5 and an offense in the top 10. Than a #1 ranked offense and a #25 ranked defense (Again like the Packers).

    Stellar….you have to be the most unbalanced poster. Sometimes you post logical things that make sense..and seem to be a good sport..and than sometimes you post things that are just meant to make people mad. Your better than this post buddy.

    Last time I checked the Vikings and Packers have the same win-loss record since Zimmer was coach. No team has been dominant in the past 4 years over the other. And the only reason one team has succeeded way more…..than the other is because of Injuries. So give it a rest on “we blew our chance last year”. Both of these teams have a great chance to be good unless major injuries occur. I fully expect both these teams to make the playoffs unless injuries happen and one to have to claw out the NFC North.

    Stellar…..are we sure you are the one posting today? We see you on Viking stories all the time. Many of us are bored at work, and just read this out of amusement or like to talk about football in general. Not because we are “Scared”.

    For the love of all that is holy…..COULD YOU POST SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM TIME TO TIME??!!?!
    You have to be the absolute most annoying poster off all time on here.

    How are you not bored to tears yet? You’ve been doing this for 10+ years.

    you have about 5 different points you make and repeat them over and over.

    Your screen name should be redunantperformance.

    You HAVE to be that annoying guy at the bar that everyone hates. Loudest mouth, a know nothing. Even your fellow fans are tired of you.

    \\\\\\\\\

    I was thinking the same thing about you recently. Nothing but disparaging comments aimed at other people with no substance in your posts.

    Carry on….
    ==============================
    Impossible.
    I’ve made like 1 comment in the last few weeks. If you are getting a multitude of disparaging comments directed at you, maybe you should look in the mirror. You were probably asking for it.

    I don’t know how you can bring yourself to defend redundantperformance anyway. Most likely you’re 2 peas in a pod.

    I’m touched that you were thinking of me recently, but I am straight. Good luck in your search.

  64. Witten knows mentioning the most storied successful franchise in NFL history will get people talking. He is learning this media thing fast.

  65. Witten should have played one more year.. He wouldn’t have to put up with the diva this year.

  66. One of the few reasons I was pleased with the Barneys making it to the postseason was the fact that several other fan bases had to be subjected to their usual brand of delusional football acumen.

    And the Minnesota Missed Tackle Miracle only fanned the flames of their crazy fanaticism.

    Their mind numbing rants and witticisms only displayed to everyone else what Packer fans have to endure on a weekly basis year in and year out.

    The Vikings most balanced team was last year. The 1998 team was great on offense and terrible on defense (Similar to the current Packers. How’s that working? Score 30 points or lose recipe?). I’d much rather have the team we have now with a solid defense, good play makers on offense, a good running game, good TE, and as long as we have a decent QB we can win games. The 2017 Vikings are one of the most Balanced Vikings teams since the 70’s. Much rather have a defense in the top 5 and an offense in the top 10. Than a #1 ranked offense and a #25 ranked defense (Again like the Packers).

    ————-

    One big problem…..the Viking lost their QB from last season and now have Kirk Cousins.

  68. I’m not a Packers fan, but I can finally understand why the Packers fans despise Vikings fans so much! Just reading their comments on this post confirms what I already thought when they were here in Philly:
    Of all the opposing fans who have ever came into our city, we’ve never witnessed a bigger bunch of cry-babies than Vikings fans. EVER! And I’m almost 50 years old! When they left Philly all they could do was cry about how they were treated. The Vikings fans came in pumping their chests and talking smack from the time they got off the plane. I got news for you…it’s not just a Philly thing. If you go into any opposing football city acting like an ass, you’re probably gonna get picked on a little bit! Funny how I didn’t hear any Falcons fans crying the week before after they lost. Nope. Most of them just exchanged friendly banter during the game and then shook hands and shared beers with us in the parking lot after the game. Of course all the Vikings fans were gone by the 3rd quarter, so they couldn’t hang out with us afterwards anyway. lol

    More redundancy from the king of redundance.

    Your next original post will be your first. You’ve copied others thoughts and collected them over the years as your own and just lather, rinse , repeat.

    You were a joke on here in 2009 and you’re an even bigger joke in 2018.

    ————–

    Kirk Cousin’s has better stats…..and has won more games than Case Keenum overall. Case Keenum had had one good year, and several bad ones. Case Keenum’s playoff record and Kirk Cousin’s playoff record are only separated by a “miracle play” Anyone who thinks Case Keenum is a better QB than Cousin’s is prisoner of the moment and doesn’t see that Case had a good year because of a good defense, a good run game, a vastly improved offenseive line and Diggs and Theilan, vs. bailing out terrible throws that should have been intercepted more times than just the Eagles games. Will Kirk Cousin’s work out? Maybe, maybe not. He could break his leg in camp for all I know. But Cousin’s is a more proven commodity and more body of work career wise than Case who could be a flash in the pan.

  72. With his history of being unable to hold onto the ball at Lambeau, why would he sign with the Packers?

  73. I used to say the Vikings were the NFL’s version of the Cubs. You know, the two teams who, every time they get withing the cusp of greatness, something bad happens.

    Even the Cubs have won a world title before the Vikings. The Cubs! SKOL! LULZ!!!!

    And Eagles fans are the trashiest fans in the NFL. I have gone to Green Bay many times, and have seen the Vikings lose there (which happens), but I didn’t fear for my life and actually was able to fun with opposing fans of our rival.

    I’ve had friends, and family go to Philly for other games besides the NFC Title game and have all told me never to.

    It’s fans like you that enable this behavior that is never ok. You should never go to an away game and fear for your life. Is the police force optional there? Even before the NFC Title game, I would have never gone based on countless feedback from family (Who are fans of other teams. Not the Vikings).

    Who cares if fans pumped their chests. Should fans not have confidence in their team? This behavior is never ok. I’m proud of my fellow Minnesotans showing class to the Philly fans that came to our city for the Superbowl. The Vikings could never win another game for the rest of my life and I wouldn’t enable this behavior, and I would still have a happy life. I also wouldn’t trash my own town.

    Philly fans give this “tough guy” act and it’s pathetic when at the end of the day it’s about a sport, a team that has nothing to do with your life. Mistreating other people over something that just frankly doesn’t matter.

    Get ready to look up at Green Bay all season Viking fans. 5 of the last 8 North titles and just keep getting better. Road to #14 World Championship has already begun.

    Sure am glad Packer fans never fall into the whole ‘offseason championship’ thing. Title town!

    Since you bring up Cousins’ stats…..check out his W/L record against teams with winning records. It’s not pretty. What he has “proven” is that he can’t rise to the occasion and beat good teams.

    Did anyone else not watch Jordy quit last year? The guys facial expressions said it all. “Without my HOF QB I’m not very good or fast enough anymore to beat most DB’s”

    He ripped off the Raiders. Mark my words he may not even finish the season there.

    He’s more done than Dez, and I liked Jordy.
    ======

    116 rec, 1487 yards, 20 tds with healthy Rodgers the last 21 games.. 21 tds counting the 2016 Playoffs.

    Probably not the gamebreaker he was in 2011… but I’d bet on him to out-produce any Packer pass catcher not named Adams.

    … if you want to talk about dropoff, Cobbs is MUCH more drastic

    //////////////////////

    Really surprised the pack did not pick Calvin Ridley with their first pick. They got Josh Jones with the second and could have used a couple of those 3 WR choices on defense. Ridley is going to be a stud at a lower price than Dez.

    I would have been fine with that. But they have to fix that D in the worst way.

    I really like the WRs they picked.. but they haven’t had success with mid-rounders since James Jones over a decade ago.

    It will be interesting to see how it pans out. They’re gonna need one of them to contribute this year.

    It’s a team game bro. Looking at static win loss to win arguments likes this is meaningless. Let me ask you. Is Drew Brees a bad QB? Because when he played for the chargers and left to go to the Saints, he had amazing stats but a losing record. He went to a different team and did better. Now that’s no guarantee that Cousin’s will do the same, but Cousin’s is basically at the stage of his career Drew was at. Similar stats, but has played on bad teams. Even the Saints, have missed the playoffs for a few years (before last year) because of bad defense but Drew was playing well. So using Wins and Losses is really stupid dude.

    Redskins have had a defense near the bottom of the league. Shipped way all their good receivers, have had no running game, and Cousin’s has still performed decent. He had a down year and still threw for more yards and TD’s than Case who everyone else thinks is better. Cousin’s has only been in one playoff game, and his terrible defense got shreeded by Aaron Rodgers. Does Cousin’s play defense?

    If the Vikings don’t have major injuries, and Cousin’s still can’t get it done against better teams with this way better roster than the Redskins, I’ll admit you are right. I have no problem. Nothing is a guarantee in the NFl, but just saying Cousin’s is bad because of Win’s and Losses and not taking the rest of the team into account is foolish. To overcome as bad of a roster as the Redksin’s you need like a once in generation type QB like Rodgers and those are extremely hard to find. Cousin’s isn’t that, but he is top 5 in almost every passing stat.

    Even look at Brady. Brady has been successful because of an amazing coach, and good surrounding cast. You put him on the Redskins and I bet he loses more games to.
