Dez Bryant currently is looking for a new home and he reportedly has one team in mind that he would like to suit up for next season.
The Dallas Cowboys cut the veteran wide receiver last week, putting one of the NFL’s most polarizing wideouts on the open market. While many people speculated that teams like the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots could be options for the Oklahoma State product, Bryant wants to stay in the NFC East, as he noted once he was released.
247 Sports’ Mike Fisher caught up with Bryant and reported that he believes the New York Giants are the receiver’s No. 1 option.
“The Giants got a helluva defense, they’re going to pay OBJ (fellow wideout and pal Odell Beckham Jr.), so coming back,” Bryant said when asked about the Giants. “Playing with him, Sterling (Shepard) … the tight end (Evan Engram), (QB Eli) Manning? Crazy. … They draft (Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick)? That’d be crazy!”
Yahoo! Sports’ Jordan Schultz reported Monday, citing sources, that the G-Men indeed are Bryant’s top destination.
Multiple teams have been linked to the veteran pass-catcher since his release, including the Baltimore Ravens. But unfortunately for Bryant, it appears the Giants aren’t in the market for another wide receiver.
