Dez Bryant is still a free agent. And while no NFL teams are rushing to sign him, former teammate Jason Witten has a good idea of where he’ll land. And it’s an interesting destination, to say the least.
Speaking to Adam Schefter on his podcast Monday, Witten sees Bryant ending up with the Green Bay Packers.
“I think he’s going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers,” Witten says. “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 where ever he wants.”
After the catch, no-catch controversy from a few years ago, this would be fun. But that’s not all. Witten also believes Bryant is going to be just fine regardless of where he ends up.
“I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities. He’s motivated. Dez is a smart football player and so he understands how important the quarterback position is.”
And that’s not all, of course. Witten also firmly believes that Bryant has plenty to offer an NFL franchise.
“I still think Dez can still highpoint the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League. 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.”
Meanwhile, Bryant is coming off a disappointing season by his standards. But in Green Bay, there would be far less pressure. Let’s get weird, NFL offseason.
