Jason Witten Predicts Former Cowboys Teammate Dez Bryant Will Sign with Packers

It's a situation that Witten called a "great spot" for his longtime teammate to once again prove that he is an elite wideout in the NFL.

Obviously, this will disappoint some Packers' fans who were hoping that Bryant would be in the teams plans.

The deadline for teams to be docked compensatory picks for next year's draft was last Tuesday, which opens the door for any veteran still on the market searching for a new team.

"I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities". And that's Dez Bryant. The Pro Bowl tight end said he believes Bryant is going to sign with the Green Bay Packers. Dez identified Green Bay as a place he does NOT want to go, because of all the history that he has in Green Bay. Even more are anxious that the Packers don't have enough weapons for Aaron Rodgers to use.

The Cowboys cut Bryant back in April, saving $8.5 million of cap space in the process.

The Packers had some level of interest in Bryant when he was first release but they have signed drafted wide receiver J'Mon Moore in the fourth round, wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and wide receiver Equanimeous St.

"I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other receiver in the NFL", Witten added.

That being said, the Packers still have Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as their top two receivers. The Ravens actually offered Bryant a multi-year deal to which he turned down, wanting more of a one-year deal with a club.

Witten made it clear that he does not have any inside information about where Bryant might end up, and he also mentioned the New Orleans Saints as another potential landing spot.

Bryant has struggled in recent seasons, with no 1,000-yard receiving campaigns since 2014. That'd give Bryant more than enough time to get accustomed to the offensive system and mesh with Rodgers.
