Dez Bryant Says He Has ‘No Interest In Playing Football Right Now’


Free agent WR Dez Bryant tweets that he has “no interest in playing football right now.

This exactly why I don’t have no interest in playing football right now,” Bryant writes. “I have not reached out to no organization trying to play. People forget real quick we are still human. My anxiety and depression came from this type of stuff. What I realized nobody care but me.”

Bryant did clarify that he isn’t retiring, he’s just “taking care of myself… that’s a promise.

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.
