Dez Bryant has not played for an NFL team since his release from the Dallas Cowboys in April 2018.

He is now ready to return to the same team.

On Friday, Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said the free agent WR texted him about returning to the team.

“He has texted me that he would like to come back,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We have nothing but great respect for Dez and what he accomplished here. Certainly, as we look forward into the future we look at all opportunities and all potential players that could maybe help us out.”

Bryant tweeted a few weeks ago that he wants to play for only three teams:

The 31-year-old signed a one-year deal worth $600,000 with the New Orleans Saints in 2018 , but would never play a game after suffering a torn Achilles.

In 2017, Bryant appeared in 15 games for the Cowboys and has caught 66 passes for 814 yards receiving and six touchdowns.

Bryant has been an unrestricted free agent for over a year now.
