Adhering to Dallas’ opening day massacre at the fingers of Tampa Bay, former Cowboys broad receiver Dez Bryant was on Twitter touting how he’d be a very good existence in the locker room to get the team’s “attitude” heading in the ideal route.
Bryant was prompted by former NFL participant Dantone Jones’ article after the Cowboys, 19-3 decline that CeeDee Lamb “needs a mentor.” The Dez Bryant ship sailed away from Dallas yrs in the past and has not returned. He’s been clamoring for a return considering the fact that he departed in 2018, and this is just the newest plea. Despite the fact that started by yet another participant, Bryant jumped on the bandwagon in attempting to restore what he the moment was.
Cowboys fans really like Bryant and would love to see him back again in Massive D in some capacity, but within the locker area may be a stretch. Irrespective of his harm position, Dak Prescott is the chief in that locker space and, far more specially, the offense. Dez has been hyper-significant of Prescott due to the fact he still left Dallas. And the two did not usually see eye to eye although teammates.
Earlier this 12 months, Dez obtained into a Twitter beef with Dak’s brother (Tad Prescott) more than criticism of Prescott and suggesting he should really attain out to Tony Romo for information pursuing the wildcard reduction to San Francisco. So, bringing Bryant into that locker place probably isn’t the finest idea.
Dallas isn’t employing a roster place on a mentorship method for their No. 1 broad receiver. The Cowboys have significant-scale difficulties on offense that Dez isn’t geared up to fix. There are not much too numerous folks qualified to overcome what ails the ‘Boys. It’s hard to overcome a meddling owner and a head coach that doesn’t feel to have a great deal of a clue due to the fact returning to the NFL.
Dez had a wonderful run for a several yrs, and which is it. He’ll go down as a pretty great Cowboys receiver — but not an all-time fantastic. His run of dominance was only about three many years in advance of accidents interrupted his key. From 2012-14 with Romo is wherever Bryant truly excelled as a Cowboy. In excess of those people three seasons, he caught no significantly less than 88 balls and went in excess of 1,200 yards getting in each individual. Dez also snagged 41 of his 75 vocation touchdowns through the identical three-12 months span.
Nostalgia is one point, but the Cowboys are not throwing it back again to the times of Dez Bryant proclaiming a locker at Jerry World. That’s about as probably as the Cowboys profitable the Super Bowl this period. If you are waiting on this reunion tour, very good luck. Dez experienced his time in the Cowboys highlight, which finished abruptly.
The Cowboys have substantially greater fish to fry appropriate now, like figuring out if Cooper Rush can manage QB1 obligations or if they need to have to corral a suited alternative for Prescott. So, Bryant returning to the Cowboys locker room for something is wishful considering.
