Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant recently posted a job listing for creative graphic designer and a creative sketch artist on his Instagram account.

A user asked Bryant why he isn’t spending his time finding a new team, to which Bryant replied: “The last problem I have is finding a team. I’m in a world you will never understand.”

Scouting Combine

Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk reports that Los Angeles has expressed interest in hosting the Scouting Combine once their new stadium opens in Inglewood.

“Indianapolis is hard to beat because you’re not playing a losing team,” a league source tells Charean. “They’ve done such a good job for a long time.”

This comes after the recent comments from Cowboys executive VP Jerry Jones Jr., who mentioned that he believes they could host the Scouting Combine at their training facility in Frisco at some point.

The NFL extended their agreement with Indianapolis to serve as the host of the Combine through 2020.
