Janoris Jenkins continues to pound drum for Dez Bryant to Giants

Seemingly asking for too much money, Bryant's market has been ice cold, as he's yet to even make a visit since getting released from the Cowboys on April 13. May. According to Witten, the Packers check all of the boxes for Bryant, who is seeking a one-year deal.

When asked about Dez Bryant and his future in the NFL, Jason Witten said he believes that he will have some "great opportunities".

The Green Bay Packers apparently don't agree with Jason Witten. Witten believes that Bryant will end up with the Green Bay Packers.

The former Cowboys tight end, who recently retired to join ESPN, appeared Monday on the "Adam Schefter Podcast," and offered a prediction of where Bryant ultimately will sign. "I just think Dez is a smart football player and so he understands how important the quarterback position is", Witten said.

The Packers, meanwhile, may want to move forward with their young receiving corps and give them a chance to gel in offseason team activities (OTAs) with quarterback Aaron Rodgers.


The Packers have already made huge changes in the offseason so far, with the departure of fan favorite Jordy Nelson and the addition of Jimmy Graham.

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. That left a starting outside spot open across from Davante Adams, with Randall Cobb occupying the slot.

J'Mon Moore in the fourth round, Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and Equanimeous St. The Pack could definitely use some more pass-catching help for Aaron Rodgers.

As for Jenkins - who was suspended for a game last season because he failed to return after the team's bye week - he has promised to be on better terms with management. Bryant has regressed since signing a five-year extension with the Cowboys before the 2015 season, failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark and double-digit touchdowns in the past three seasons.
