Packers Not Expected To Sign Dez Bryant

Packers Not Expected To Sign Dez Bryant

Interest from the Packers' side on Bryant has felt lukewarm throughout the process.

The Cowboys released Bryant in April after eight years with the team. Over a month has passed since then, yet Bryant still hasn't found a new home. The Baltimore Ravens probably came closest to signing him, but Bryant reportedly turned them down. Witten thinks Dez will be signing with another NFC team.

Speaking on The Adam Schefter Podcast (h/t Zach Kruse of USA Today), Witten offered his prediction: "I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers". I'm not certain that he goes to the Packers, but I just think that's a great fit.

40 feared drowned as boat capsizes in Godavari River in Andhra Pradesh
Of the 40 people who were reportedly onboard, only 17 had been rescued till the latest reports came in. Last year, a boat accident in Vijayawada on the Krishna river claimed as many as 21 lives.

Witten believes Bryant is looking for the best chance to win and a quarterback who can drop accurate fade throws, something every Packer fan knows Aaron Rodgers is more than capable of doing. "Because I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League. So, you partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, I think that offense can put up a lot of points".

Bryant's veteran presence could tempt Gutekunst to take a look at him, but really Rodgers doesn't need the three-time Pro Bowler to put up big numbers.

The talented trio of Cobb, Davante Adams, and newcomer Jimmy Graham is a solid group of targets for Rodgers as Green Bay tries to bounce back from missing the playoffs past year. That left a starting outside spot open across from Davante Adams, with Randall Cobb occupying the slot. But after the Packers drafted wide receiver J'Mon Moore in the fourth round, wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and wide receiver Equanimeous St. That leaves Allison, 2017 UDFA Michael Clark or Trevor Davis who has primarily been used a punt returner for the Packers. He last topped 1,000 yards in a season in 2014.
