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

Xavier Woods Rams

Most fans and media members believe that Bryant would prefer to sign a one-year deal to prove himself and then test free agency again next offseason.

USA TODAY's For the Win looked into who that corner might have been, and it looks like it was former LSU CB Morris Claiborne.

Except some guy named Dez Bryant. We may never know, but Rob Ryan seems to think so.

Witten named one other team as a fit for Bryant: the New Orleans Saints. With Geronimo Allison, a former undrafted free agent set to be the Packers boundary receiver opposite Davante Adams, it should be somewhat obvious Bryant is better.

Speaking on The Adam Schefter Podcast (h/t Zach Kruse of USA Today), Witten offered his prediction: "I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers". Green Bay already has a solid receiving corps even with the recent departure of Nelson who signed with the Oakland Raiders after his release. 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. And Dez has great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants.

"I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other receiver in the NFL", Witten added. So you partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, I think that offense could put up a lot of points.

"I think Dez is certainly going to have plenty of opportunities", Witten said.

Bryant, who will be 30 in November, caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns in 2017.

Witten mentioned quarterback play and a chance to contend for a title as reasons why Bryant would gravitate toward the Packers, but it takes two to tango.

Bryant, who turns 30 on November 4, has not posted a 1,000-yard season since 2014.
