Back in February, Dez Bryant made it clear he wasn’t returning to play another season with the Baltimore Ravens. The wideout hopped on Twitter and admitted, while there isn’t any bad blood, he feels as if he was a fit for the system and the offense that the team runs.
According to reports from TMZ Sports, the three-time Pro Bowler has the Arizona Cardinals at the top of his list.
“I think that would be dope being next to my boy D Hop [Deandre Hopkins], Christian Kirk, Kyler Murray,” Bryant said. “I think they have a dope offense. I feel like they got a dope defense. I think they got a dope coach — If I had to choose, yeah, if that opportunity presented itself, I think I would take it.”
He believes he could thrive for the Cards in a #2 or #3 role.
“I feel like if you gonna play me one-on-one,” Dez said, “I’ma win.”
Dez also stated he would open to a reunion with the Dallas Cowboys as well.
“I’ll tell you this,” Dez said, “if it was possible, of course I’d be open to it if it was possible.”
Bryant managed to score 2 touchdowns for the Ravens and put up 47 receiving yards in 6 games played.
In his career with Dallas, Bryant put up 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns. He made 3 Pro Bowls from 2013-2016 and was an NFL All-Pro in 2014 when he led the league in touchdowns.
Bryant was released by the Cowboys after 2017, and while he signed with the Saints, he never played a game after tearing his Achilles tendon in practice.
