Janoris Jenkins still pushing for Dez Bryant to Giants

Former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten admitted he didn't have any inside information on the situation, but he predicted former teammate Dez Bryant will eventually sign with the Green Bay Packers.

The Giants still don't appear interested in Dez Bryant - though Janoris Jenkins continues to lobby the front office to change its mind. Brown in the sixth round.

Teams are going to begin scouring the free agent market again ahead of training camp and it wouldn't be shocking to see the Packers reach out to him. Green Bay could use another receiver after releasing longtime star Jordy Nelson earlier this offseason. Bryant was never relegated to a No. 2 option in the Dallas Cowboys' passing attack. "Aaron Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well, and Dez [can have] great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants".

"I still think Dez can still highpoint the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League", Witten said. "He's motivated, and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers". At 29 years old, he would simply have to fill a role as a compliment to Adams, who Green Bay believes will be its next superstar wideout.


It's been more than one month since the Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Dez Bryant. The Baltimore Ravens probably came closest to signing him, but Bryant reportedly turned them down.

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.

Throw Randall Cobb and Jimmy Graham into the mix, and the Packers would have the best receiving corps in the NFL.

Since signing a five-year, $70 million contract in 2015, Bryant has failed to record a 1,000-yard season or reel in more than eight touchdown receptions in a season.
