Last thing Dez said in the meeting was he will see them twice a year. I don’t think Eagles or Giants have the cap space for Dez. That leaves Redskins and Josh Norman.

Maybe he meant he will buy tickets to 2 games each year cuz that is all he can afford.

Well, if my Lions could afford him somehow, I hope they would try to fit him in. I think the guy has a lot left and with a good passing QB, he can still make some things happen (imo). I'm pretty sure Stafford wouldn't mind adding him to the arsenal.

10 Teams who could be in the running to get Dez :


1. Washington Redskins

Never underestimate rivalry. Surely the Redskins would love to snag their division opponent's former top target and deploy him twice a year against Dallas. Bryant could revel in facing the team that cut him to try to prove it was the wrong decision. It wouldn't be a surprise if team owner Daniel Snyder opens the pocketbook to offer Dez the most money on the open market. Oh, and how fun would it be for former enemies, Bryant and Josh Norman, to hook up with the same team?

2. San Francisco 49ers

Dez's best attribute at this stage of his career is his red-zone acumen. Too often last season once Jimmy Garoppolo took over, San Francisco stalled in scoring position. The 49ers could use a big touchdown target for Jimmy G, which makes San Francisco a logical landing spot for Bryant, on paper. Deploying Bryant alongside Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin and Trent Taylor would give Kyle Shanahan flexible chess pieces to play with.

3. Baltimore Ravens

Ozzie Newsome already added Michael Crabtree and John Brown to his receiving corps, but signing Bryant would provide pop for Joe Flacco. Breshad Perriman's injury history necessitates the Ravens continue to search for depth. Dez would bring more than that. He would provide a red-zone combination alongside Crabtree that would make life immensely easier for Flacco.

4. Houston Texans

The Texans snagging a star player from their in-state rival would be icing on the cake. Bryant heading to Houston would also make on-field sense. Playing alongside DeAndre Hopkins would take pressure off Bryant and allow him more one-on-one matchup on the opposite side. Imagine trying to defend Hopkins and Bryant in the end zone. It would also buffer the options for young quarterback Deshaun Watson. After upgrading the defense with one star castoff, Tyrann Mathieu, Houston could add another in Bryant.

5. Seattle Seahawks

Adding a player like Bryant would further the Seahawks' attempt to remake their roster in Russell Wilson's image. Dez could fit alongside slot receiver Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett as Wilson's primary targets. Bryant's red-zone acumen would also make up for the loss of tight end Jimmy Graham. We know coach Pete Carroll doesn't shy away from adding big personalities to his locker room.

6. Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals might not be an obvious landing spot, but Arizona still has a need at receiver. The main reason I want the Cards on this list is for the possibility of Bryant working with Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzy has magnificently stiff-armed father time, morphing his game as he aged. It's something many analysts have said Dez needs to do as he reaches 30. Fitzgerald has even been mentioned as an example Bryant needs to follow. What if he could work every day with the master himself?

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags let Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns walk in free agency, deciding to ride younger players Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole and give Donte Moncrief a surprising contract. On paper, adding Bryant would boost the underneath game for Blake Bortles and provide a red-zone target for a team that relies heavily on Leonard Fournette near the goal line.

8. New York Giants

Signing Bryant doesn't feel like a Dave Gettleman move, but swapping Brandon Marshall for Dez would be an upgrade alongside Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. Adding Bryant would further signify the Giants' intentions to try to pry open the Eli Manning era. There's also that in-division rivalry aspect to keep in mind.

9. Carolina Panthers

The Panthers attempted to get faster at receiver last season by trading away Kelvin Benjamin to mixed results. Importing Bryant would halt that plan, but provide Cam Newton a big-bodied pass-catcher to snag his high throws. New GM Marty Hurney feels more likely to take a risk on importing a personality like Bryant than his predecessor, Gettleman. Also, the Panthers host the Cowboys in 2018, if, you know, Dez needs that revenge factor.

10. New England Patriots

It's written in stone on The Internet Sports Writing Ten Commandments tablets that every big-name player must be linked to the Patriots. Does New England need to add another receiver to its glut of pass-catchers? No. Does Bryant's personality seem to fit with the Patriot Way? Not really. Would coach Bill Belichick pay the kind of money it could take to lure Dez to Foxborough? Unlikely. Does any of that matter when we are conjuring up connect-the-dot reasons a player might sign with one of 31 franchises? Nope.

I think he should go to the Titans or 49ers, if either team is looking for a better deep threat receiver.

Has Dez ever been a deep threat? He isn't out running anybody. The guy has talent but his mouth is bigger than his hands because he drops more passes than any other receiver in football.

This was obvious here in Dallas, no shocker at all. He needs to go to a team with a stud QB who has a bit of a gun slinger mentality if Dez is going to have any success.

He gets ZERO separation so every ball needs to be a jump ball or back shoulder throw. And like Wayne said he use to catch those balls now he drops a 1/3 of them.

The best fit for him would be GB with Rodgers. Rodgers would be the one guy who could maximize what Dez has left. I know its stating the obvious but Rodgers puts the ball in the spot it needs to be when a guy is covered, he has the confidence to throw to Dez while he is covered, and he by far throws the best back shoulder pass.
