Dez Bryant has made it known that he is fully healthy, ready to return to football and gearing up to start giving teams a call to sign him.
In a recent tweet from Dez Bryant’s own personal account, he says that he is ready to start playing football in the NFL again. Could the New Orleans Saints once again be a landing spot for the former All-Pro receiver?
Bryant signed with the New Orleans Saints in 2018 after the Cowboys released him following down years in 2016 and 2017. On one of the first days of practice in 2018, Dez tore his Achilles tendon, an injury I can relate to.
He is now over twelve months removed from his surgery to repair that injury and is ready to get back to NFL play.
In 2017, his last year with the Dallas Cowboys, Bryant played all 16 games and secured 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns. In 2016, he was a pro-bowler with 50 receptions for 796 yards and eight touchdowns in 13 games.
Bryant even admits he won’t come back and expect to be a pro-bowler like he was, but he wants to be an effective receiver again at a high level. Could we see the”X” in New Orleans?
There is definitely a window for Dez Bryant that he will be able to come back and be an effective complementary wide receiver. Could you imagine him next to Michael Thomas if he’s even a portion of the receiver he once was?
Here are three reasons the New Orleans Saints should be the first team Dez Bryant calls.
