Former Cowboys WR Dez Bryant ‘In The Lab’ at The Star in Frisco, Reaches out to Stephen Jones

It's been no secret that former is eager to make an NFL return, and he wants to do it in Big D. Thursday at the Sports Performance at in Frisco, Bryant worked out with wide receiver coach David Robinson.

Bryant has dropped 10 pounds which puts him at his playing weight during his eight-year stint with the Cowboys. The organization's all-time leader in touchdown receptions reiterated that he doesn't have to be the main guy in any , however, he can still be effective.

Of course, working is a lot different from being in game shape, but Bryant has relentlessly been pursuing getting back to the game he loves.

Even coming off of an 8-8 season, the Cowboys have one of the youngest and most talented rosters in the NFL. During the Conference Championship games last month, Bryant made it clear that he wants to return to the Cowboys and play alongside their explosive offensive talent.

Also, even though Bryant still has a great relationship with Owner , Executive Vice President might not be so willing to bring him back considering how he departed in 2018, that was until this morning.

Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram noted Jones didn't rule out the Cowboys Bryant in comments Thursday.

“He has texted me that he would like to come back,” Jones said. “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.”

Smart money says that Bryant will be on an NFL roster next season, and we all know where he wants that to be. While he might not be in the immediate plans as the starts to take shape, but the lines of communication are obviously open. Will Bryant get his shot to once again play for ? We'll all be paying close attention.
