Dez Bryant Looking To Make Midseason Return To NFL


Free agent WR Dez Bryant tells Jane Slater that he’s planning to attempt to get back in the league in “mid-October.”

”I’m way better than I was before I went to the Saints last year… mid October is when I’m going to be trying to get back in the league,” Bryant said.

Slater posted the following video of Bryant’s workout as part of his recovery from a season-ending Achilles injury he suffered last year:

Bryant, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $70 million contract that included $45 million guaranteed and was set to make base salaries of $12.5 million over the final two years of the agreement when Dallas released him last year. 

The Saints signed Bryant to a one-year deal worth $600,000 over the remainder of the season, but he suffered a torn Achilles last year.

Bryant is once again an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2017, Bryant appeared in 15 games for the Cowboys and has caught 66 passes for 814 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 45 receiver out of 116 qualifying players that season.

We’ll have more regarding Bryant as the news is available.
