Dez Bryant wants to play football for the upcoming season, but he is sure to make the hall of fame even if he never gets another shot, at least according to what he has to say.
The former Dallas Cowboys wideout told TMZ he believes he will make it to the Hall because “nobody put up TDs the way I put up.”
From 2011 to 2014, Bryant hauled in 50 receiving touchdowns. For his career, that number jumps to 75 touchdowns. Those total receiving touchdowns rank 36th all-time among receivers. Bryant ranks 122 on the all-time receiving yardage list.
Last season, Bryant played six games with the Baltimore Ravens as he recorded 6 passes for 47 yards and 2 touchdowns. He is currently a free agent and already stated on Twitter that he won’t be back with the Ravens in 2021.
Later in his conversation with TMZ, he says if he’s not a Hall of Famer, he’s at least “close.”
If he doesn’t make the hall of fame, he’ll likely find himself in the Cowboys’ Ring of Honor as he has caught more touchdowns as a Cowboy than Michael Irvin, and ranks No. 5 among Cowboys pass catchers with 7,459 receiving yards.
