Green Bay Packers Not Expected To Sign Dez Bryant

Longtime Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, who recently retired for a job in ESPN's Monday Night Football booth, weighed in on his former teammate on a recent addition of The Adam Schefter Podcast.

When the Dallas Cowboys waived Dez Bryant, the wide receiver was angry. Witten believes that Bryant will end up with the Green Bay Packers.

When the dallas cowboys waived Dez Bryant, most National Football League fans thought he would pick up with a new team quickly.

Bryant, meanwhile, turned down a potential contract with the Baltimore Ravens as he continues to seek a one-year deal, ideally with a team in the NFC East.

"I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities", Witten said. "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 where ever he wants".

Jimmy Graham just joined the Green Bay Packers as a tight end, and the team just released Jordy Nelson in March, opening up a spot for someone like Dez Bryant.

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. Bryant would be an interesting fit with the Packers - Graham, Dez and Davante Adams would be pretty hard to defend.

Witten also mentioned the New Orleans Saints as a possibility, but let's look at the Packers. The Pack could definitely use some more pass-catching help for Aaron Rodgers.

When wide receiver Dez Bryant was released by the Cowboys before the draft, one logical landing spot seemed like the Green Bay Packers. Bryant has regressed since signing a five-year extension with the Cowboys before the 2015 season, failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark and double-digit touchdowns in the past three seasons. However, adding him would do nothing to fix the Packers' below-average defense, which ranked 26th in points allowed (384) last season.
