Bryant-Patriots signing would be Randy ‘Moss-esk’
just a month left before the 2018 NFL season begins, Dez Bryant still has yet
to sign with a team, but is rumored to be meeting with a contender.
is little news about Dez Bryant or any of his potential suitors in free agency,
except for his dis-interest in the Cleveland Browns. The Browns commented
yesterday that Bryant didn’t really seem attracted to the idea of signing.
recently just told the media that “he wants to play for a contender”, even
after failing to sign with a team with just weeks away from regular season. He
is basically limiting his options in free agency, but is sticking to his Owens-like character, wanting to win
have it that the Bryant’s next destination could be in New England, as the
Patriots would make perfect sense for the Pro-Bowl wide receiver.
Patriots reportedly have not contacted Bryant, which is the vintage “Patriot
way” to not release any information to the media. The gossip starts with Tom
Brady and his like for Bryant, many believe he is recruiting the former Dallas
buzz continues after recent news that Patriots are releasing wide receiver Malcom
Mitchell. Sources around the league speculate that New England is clearing a
path to sign Dez.
England needs help at the wide receiver position to say the least; with the Brandon Cooks trade to the Los Angeles Rams,
and Julian Edelman still recovering from the ACL injury, Patriots might just have
to roll the dice with Dez. While there is the “baggage” that comes with Bryant,
the talent is still there, and derives a strong passion for the game – something
key to spark the Patriots’ offense.
Brady, 41, is most likely going to retire after the end of the 2018-2019 NFL
season. It looks like this is a do-or-die season for the Brady-Belicheck era.
Dez give the Patriots the boost they need to make it another Super Bowl?
