Dez Bryant not only wants to get back in the National Football League, but he wants to play for the only team he really ever suited up with.
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Bryant has been in contact with Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones and has been “pleading” for a return to the team.
Bryant signed a deal with the Saints months after his release from the Cowboys, but would suffer a torn Achilles tendon in a practice session with the team and never see the field in the regular season.
The 31-year-old worked out with Patrick Mahomes in the Dallas area on Friday which has also sparked rumors that he might be headed to the Chiefs.
He didn’t have the best departure from the Cowboys after his release, blaming “garbage ass playcalling” for the Cowboys’ problems. He also blamed center Travis Frederick and linebacker Sean Lee for his release after eight seasons in Dallas.
“He’s not clueless. Jerry [Jones] was the only one who was clueless. [Stuff] was a planned to get me out ask Travis and my brother snake Lee I mean Sean Lee,” Bryant wrote.
Bryant went on to write in another tweet, when asked about Lee, that “he suppose to been my brother” and that the nine-year veteran was the “first to know” that Bryant was cut.
“I find out he was also behind it,” Bryant said.
Maybe time healed all wounds.
