After 15 seasons of making hay in the NFL, former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is now churning the NFL rumor mill. Witten will be ESPN’s Monday Night Football analyst this season and talked about his new role.
On The Adam Schefter Podcast, Witten predicted his former teammate Dez Bryant will end up signing with the Green Bay Packers. Bryant was cut by the Cowboys a couple months ago, right around the time the Packers made the decision to cut receiver Jordy Nelson.
Witten believes Bryant is looking for the best chance to win and a quarterback who can drop accurate fade throws, something every Packer fan knows Aaron Rodgers is more than capable of doing. According to Witten, the Packers check all of the boxes for Bryant, who is seeking a one-year deal. Bryant has received little interest on the open market.
Last season, Bryant accumulated 838 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He also averaged 12.1 yards per catch.
The Packers cut former pro-bowl receiver Nelson seemingly to save money and use that on a terrible defense. So for the Packers to give Bryant a big chunk of change would be a bit nonsensical.
