Ever since Dez Bryant got cut by the Cowboys, he’s had his sights set on still playing in the NFC East so he could face Dallas twice a year. He’s had some difficulty making that happen.
Bryant could’ve signed with a team quickly as the Ravens wanted to ink him to a multi-year deal, per Ian Rapoport. He quickly shot that offer down and now he’s still unsigned. This could be mainly due to the fact that he wants to play for the Giants so much, per NFL.com’s Jane Slater.
“Right now, it’s a little bit about revenge,” said Slater. “I think he’s holding out to see if New York happens to have a need come training camp, and I have to tell you that selfishly, I’d like to see Dez in this division. Covering the Cowboys as much as I do, because I think that he’d make a matchup that’s already entertaining now that we have Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott, now adding Dez Bryant, and I think you have a very interesting division.”
This is a very risky situation for Bryant because many teams already have doubts about him. Some don’t even want to give him a veteran’s minimum deal. I understand that he’s frustrated with being let go by the Cowboys and wants to show out against them in two games a year but he needs to get on a roster immediately, even if its not a team within the NFC East. He already took to Twitter saying that he has no regrets about not wanting to sign with Baltimore.
