Former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is still looking for that perfect one-year gig, so he can stick it to his previous employer.
And his former quarterback insists Bryant won’t be a problem for whomever decides to employ him.
“There’s a ton of teams he could help,” retired Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said, via Todd Archer of ESPN. “One thing, I don’t know how many teams will do their homework on it, but Dez is a good teammate and I think sometimes that might get lost in the way that the emotional aspect of things. If I was talking to any of the G.M.s or coaches, I would tell them he’s not going to hurt the locker room in any possible way. He’s going to come out and he’ll be a great teammate when he gets there. I think he’ll have a couple options here soon.”
What’s Romo’s commission should Dez get signed? I don’t know if Dez can still play but with his antics in the past, he has lost the benefit of the doubt.
I think the only people who don’t think Dez is good inside an NFL locker room are people who’ve never played sports. His teammates have always loved him.
Sorry yes, it was Dak’s problem. Dramatic decrease in Comp%, dramatic increase in INTs, DRAMATIC decrease in his rating (about 20 points), both as a passer and overall QBR. He only got sacked 7 more times in 2017 than in 2016, and according to you that was all in one game. OK so he had a bad game (that isn’t all on the line btw, QB decision making plays into sacks as well).And Tyron Smith was only out for 3 games last year – same as 2016 when Dak was sporting a 103+ rating – so no, that isn’t it.
The Cowboys made a move to try to replace Witten. They continue to insist they are happy with the other tight ends on the roster, but Rico Gathers, Geoff Swaim and Blake Jarwin have only nine catches for 94 yards and no touchdowns in 29 career games.
Witten made 1,152 catches for 12,448 yards and 68 touchdowns in his career.
So the Cowboys used a fourth-round pick on Stanford tight end Dalton Schultz on Saturday.
