The Dallas Cowboys showed their creativity in their willingness to improve their team by signing Aldon Smith, someone that hasn’t played in the NFL since 2015. That raises a possible question. Would they consider bringing back Dez Bryant?
There was a recent development in this possible idea as Dak Prescott has been getting in a few workouts with Bryant. While that isn’t necessarily more than just two former teammates trying to stay in shape, it’s intriguing to see the results in some of the clips.
Bryant last played in the NFL during the 2017 season. In 16 appearances, he totaled 69 receptions, 838 receiving yards, and six receiving touchdowns. The Cowboys decided to release him that offseason after they felt he wasn’t producing up to par with the contract extension he received.
After looking for a new team for the first time since entering the NFL, Bryant signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints in early November of the 2018 season. He tore his Achilles just two days after signing that contract.
Bryant will be looking to sign a contract with an NFL team for the 2020 season after spending all of last season working on his injury recovery. With a phenomenal wide receivers class for this year’s NFL Draft, he will have to wait until after that plays out to see teams needing a receiver.
With that being said, there are three reasons a reunion with Dez Bryant makes sense for the Cowboys.
