Adhering to Dallas’ opening working day massacre at the palms of Tampa Bay, previous Cowboys broad receiver Dez Bryant was on Twitter touting how he’d be a superior presence in the locker area to get the team’s “attitude” heading in the correct direction.
Bryant was prompted by previous NFL participant Dantone Jones’ put up just after the Cowboys, 19-3 reduction that CeeDee Lamb “needs a mentor.” The Dez Bryant ship sailed absent from Dallas many years back and hasn’t returned. He’s been clamoring for a return given that he departed in 2018, and this is just the most up-to-date plea. Although started out by another player, Bryant jumped on the bandwagon in making an attempt to restore what he after was.
Cowboys enthusiasts adore Bryant and would really like to see him again in Huge D in some capability, but inside of the locker home could be a extend. No matter of his harm position, Dak Prescott is the leader in that locker area and, a lot more particularly, the offense. Dez has been hyper-critical of Prescott because he still left Dallas. And the two did not normally see eye to eye while teammates.
Before this yr, Dez received into a Twitter beef with Dak’s brother (Tad Prescott) around criticism of Prescott and suggesting he really should get to out to Tony Romo for tips next the wildcard loss to San Francisco. So, bringing Bryant into that locker room in all probability isn’t the most effective plan.
Dallas is not making use of a roster place on a mentorship program for their No. 1 wide receiver. The Cowboys have large-scale problems on offense that Dez isn’t geared up to resolve. There are not way too a lot of folks experienced to treatment what ails the ‘Boys. It’s hard to prevail over a meddling owner and a head coach that doesn’t appear to be to have considerably of a clue considering the fact that returning to the NFL.
Dez experienced a wonderful run for a couple of several years, and that’s it. He’ll go down as a really very good Cowboys receiver — but not an all-time terrific. His run of dominance was only about three decades prior to injuries interrupted his key. From 2012-14 with Romo is the place Bryant really excelled as a Cowboy. More than those people a few seasons, he caught no significantly less than 88 balls and went in excess of 1,200 yards receiving in each and every. Dez also snagged 41 of his 75 profession touchdowns all through the identical a few-calendar year span.
Nostalgia is one thing, but the Cowboys aren’t throwing it back again to the times of Dez Bryant boasting a locker at Jerry Planet. Which is about as most likely as the Cowboys successful the Tremendous Bowl this time. If you are waiting around on this reunion tour, very good luck. Dez experienced his time in the Cowboys highlight, which ended abruptly.
The Cowboys have substantially larger fish to fry proper now, like figuring out if Cooper Rush can tackle QB1 duties or if they have to have to corral a appropriate replacement for Prescott. So, Bryant returning to the Cowboys locker place for anything at all is wishful imagining.
