Dez Bryant says he has no interest in playing football right now due to anxiety and depression, but he’s not ready to retire just yet.
The former Cowboys star receiver opened up on Twitter about his current situation. Bryant responded after TMZ Sports published a story about Ezekiel Elliot and the Cowboys being sued over a 2017 car crash that they are alleged to have covered up.
A fan on Twitter brought up how Bryant and Elliot both had old legal issues pop up when they were angling for new contracts.
In 2015 when Bryant was trying to get a new deal multiple off the field incidents with the police from 2011 came to light.
Bryant responded to the fan tweet.
Bryant did eventually end up getting a big contract, signing a five year $70 million deal before getting cut after the 2017 season by the Cowboys. He was picked up by the Saints but suffered a season-ending injury before he could even play a game for them.
Bryant has no intentions of completely giving up on football, but he wants to return when his mind is right.
I’m not retiring bro … I’m just taking care of myself … that’s a promise.”
If Bryant chooses to return to the field this season, he could be a solid addition to a wide receiver corps.
