Packers not now interested in Dez Bryant

"I think it's a win-win for the Packers".

The Giants still don't appear interested in Dez Bryant - though Janoris Jenkins continues to lobby the front office to change its mind. Still, despite remaining open to the idea of considering Bryant, the Giants have showed very little interest to date.

One story in particular surfaced on Tuesday, when Ryan discussed how WR Dez Bryant "punked" a first-year defender so badly his career was ruined. "He's motivated and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers".

Speaking on The Adam Schefter Podcast (h/t Zach Kruse of USA Today), Witten offered his prediction: "I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers".

"I think Dez is certainly going to have plenty of opportunities", Witten said.




Bryant's veteran presence could tempt Gutekunst to take a look at him, but really Rodgers doesn't need the three-time Pro Bowler to put up big numbers.

Former Cowboys tight end turned ESPN analyst, Jason Witten, believes that his former teammate could end up catching passes from Rodgers during the 2018 campaign.

Other teams that were mentioned as potential landing spots throughout the free agency process thus far for Bryant were the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints. "Aaron Rodgers throws that back-shoulder throw well, and Dez (would have) great chemistry with a quarterback who can put the ball wherever he wants".

"I still think Dez can still high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League". The Packers went away from their model player last offseason when they signed the polarizing Martellus Bennett, and no one can soon forget how badly that ended.

Despite his connection with Bryant, however, Witten said he does not have any inside knowledge about which teams are pursuing Bryant.
