Should the Packers consider giving Dez Bryant a chance?

Dez Bryant, Packers

The 2020 NFL season is right around the corner and the Green Bay Packers are still in need of finding another wide receiver. After bringing in Devin Funchess in free agency, the Packers saw their new weapon opt out of the season due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, they need to consider bringing in free agent wideout Dez Bryant.

That’s right, the Packers should take a low-risk gamble on Bryant. While he hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2017 season, this would make perfect sense for both parties involved.

During that 2017 season, Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns. He received a ton of criticism for a slow year, but still proved that he deserved another opportunity. With a chip on his shoulder now, Bryant would make even more sense for a team needing a wideout.

Aaron Rodgers is entering the final stages of his time with the Packers. The team has only won one Super Bowl with one of the best quarterbacks of all-time.

All of that being said, let’s take a look at why the Packers should take a chance on Dez Bryant for the 2020 season.


  1. His days as star are over but that doesn’t mean he contribute to the packers offense. With the dearth at WR why not bring in a guy in the cheap that should be able to catch 50 or 60 balls and score a few TDs. They really have nothing po lose by giving him a tryout.

  2. Grasping at straws, the dude has not played in the NFL in over a year. Why not make an blog article asking about Jordy, Jennings, heck Jerry Rice. If they wanted him he would already be a teammate. Jeepers

  3. Not a cowboy fan by any means, but you see Bryants workouts n the guy wants to play…he’s definitely hungry….give him a shot Guty!!

  4. Take a chance on proven receivers and not 2nd or 3rd year mediocre receivers!!!!!!!!! Only team that play to win but not to win it all!!!!!!!! Aaron Rodgers the best QB by far…and has the same amount of super bowls as Nick foles! Brian you’re not the same but you are the same as red Thompson!!! Just look at other teams…49’ers,…bears…. buffalo…Tampa Bay…and the super team Patriots!!!! You think Tom got all those Superbowls without good and proven talent????? Greenbay get on board….play to win..the ultimate goal…the Superbowl

  5. Bryant = Locker room poison… he “Might” catch 30 passes, but will suck the life out of the locker room, and cost the team the focus they need to WIN in the NFL
