    Dez Bryant “Open” to Cowboys Reunion

    Dez Bryant spent eight seasons dazzling the fans of the . The 24th overall pick of the 2010 made three Pro Bowls and was named an All-Pro (2014) while setting the franchise record for receiving touchdowns with 73.

    Unfortunately in 2018, after failing to reach 1,000 yards for the third consecutive season since he signed his five-year, $70 million dollar deal, Bryant was released from the Cowboys. He was out of the NFL for two years before with the back in October, and now he's an unrestricted .

    Bryant made it clear last month that he plans on playing two more seasons before hanging up the cleats for good. Just a few days ago, he named the as a destination he could see himself playing at. However, predictably, the question of him returning to the Cowboys was asked, and Bryant gave an interesting answer.

    “I'll tell you this, if it was possible, of course, I'd be open to it if it was possible,” Bryant said, via TMZ Sports. “For the most part, I understand what they've got going on over there, and I think what they're doing is beautiful. I'm happy that they paid Dak (Prescott), that was very important. I'm a big chemistry guy, I'm not so much hyped on talent. I love what they've got going on.”

    A little over a year ago, when Bryant was still looking to get back into the league, he expressed interest in a possible reunion with the Cowboys, stating how he'd love to play alongside the firepower they have offensively, but in a different role than he did before, which makes his willingness to return to Dallas not all that surprising.

    Bryant's departure from the Cowboys wasn't a smooth one. Shortly after his , he put out a tweet saying “it's personal” between himself and the Cowboys organization. Back in December, however, Bryant's tone was different before he was set to face his former team.

    “For the most part, it’s water under the bridge,” Bryant said. “That’s two years. I had time to get myself together. You got to go forward with life because life isn’t going to wait on you. Time waits on no one. I had to get myself together and move forward.”

    The relationship between Bryant and Team Owner has always been good, and it continued even after the former first-rounder was let go. When Bryant made his return to the NFL, Jones was very excited for his former receiver as he told 105.3 The Fan before the Cowboys faced the Ravens.

    “Dez has an eternal light of good,” Jones said. “If you love a competitor, or if you love somebody that his whole being is about getting to compete. He’s got his teammate’s best interests, great teammate. Dez is a eternal light of positiveness for our game. I couldn’t be happier to see him on the field. Now, I’m going to be a little worried because I do know how that rascal can go up there and get a ball.”

    A second stint with the Cowboys for Bryant might be unlikely, but the thought of him throwing up the X once more at is an intriguing one.

    Not only not but **** no. Complete waste of time and all he does is poison the locker room and take developmental snaps from others.

    While I think Dez may still be a hot head, but he can help in the Red zone, what is his specialty and the cowboys need to win the super bowl

    In answer to Church Wrong … We just don’t have a spot for Dez, but IF Dallas was to trade Gallup ( please don’t ) I’d sign Dez to a 1yr deal in a heartbeat.!! He’d be a great weapon in the red zone.!! And Dez is NOT a disruption to the locker room.!!

    Sign Dez too a 1 year deal and make him a back up behind Cee Dee Lamb.but only in the red zone and some slot receiving.Dez is still a great player but his mouth gets him in trouble so maybe he might be more tame and will help our cowboys

    He’s been washed up for 3-4 years. Plus he is a ME guy who can’t control his emotions and would be a terrible locker room guy. So can we finally put it to bed? Some guys just don’t know when to walk away.

    As a huge cowboys fan…I would love to see dez back on the side lines…dez is one of the most passionate guys we have ever had in our locker room…He was a huge Romo supporter and I think Dez let’s his pride get the best of him and never really warmed up to the idea that dak was the future…However he saw where that got him…on the outside looking in…but I think dez has learned his lesson and would have no problem playing his role in this new offense…that doesn’t just go through him and Romo anymore…before he did not need to be a team player…because him and Romo was our offense…now he is fully aware that he needs to get in where he fits in…#teamX…we have been missing that red zone threat…and if dak is man enough to forgive him…than why can’t we…

    Dez won’t be a good option in the red zone. He don’t have breakaway speed.
