Former Dallas Cowboys Star Dez Bryant Wants To Return To NFL Return, Plans To Contact Teams
Former NFL star, Dez Bryant, 31, has his sights set on his return to the league revealing on Twitter Wednesday (Nov. 6th), just one year after tearing his Achilles during a team practice. The former first round 2010 draft pick says in his announcement he’ll begin searching for a team to sign with in two weeks and is willing to accept a smaller role. Dez Bryant writes,
“I’m not trying to go nowhere and be a starter on a team. I want to contribute because I know I will be able to… I’m feeling good… in two weeks I’m going to reach out to teams and see what happens…. let’s go X.”
The free-agent receiver signed with the New Orleans Saints last season but the star receiver’s season ended with his injury of his Achilles just days after signing a one-year deal with the team. The injury came with an expected eight-month recovery but 3-time Pro Bowler has continued to stay healthy throughout his rehabilitation.
Dez Bryant may be a perfect fit with the Philadelphia Eagles as the team recently announced their plans to place DeSean Jackson on injured reserve for surgery. As previously reported, DeSean Jackson will undergo a surgery to repair a core muscle injury from the Eagles‘ Week 2 loss to the Falcons.
He is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in touchdown receptions with 73, only three in front of Jason Witten. Bryant has 531 career receptions for 7,459 yards.
