Giants Not Interested In Dez Bryant?

Having been a free agent for a week now, Dez Bryant is still interested in landing with a team that is scheduled to play the Cowboys twice this season. But an NFC East avenue has yet to emerge.

The Giants are the latest to hold off on making Bryant’s revenge dream a reality. Big Blue is not “at this point in time vying for his services,” Ian Rapoport of reports (via PFT’s Charean Williams). Bryant praised the Giants’ setup recently, expressing interest in being installed in the team’s skill-position arrangement.

New York would now make for an interesting destination, having just released Brandon Marshall, and Bryant posted a video of him working out with Odell Beckham Jr. While a Beckham/Bryant setup would be an incredible attempt by one team to corner the wide receiver headline market, that might not be in the cards.

The Giants are not going to take a wide receiver at No. 2 overall, assuming they keep the pick, and may opt to address other needs in the second round as well. But having only signed former second-rounder-turned-special-teamer Cody Latimer this offseason, the Giants figure to add a wideout to mix via the draft or free agency at some point in the near future.

The Ravens are the only team thus far that is believed to have confirmed interest in Bryant, who will turn 30 this season.

    someone explain to me why the Giants need Dez? with Sheppard, OBJ, and those two TE’s along with Young WR’S coming in… why bother with this dude?

    Philly is the only team left in the division who hasn’t publicly said no

      They have to make room from a super bowl winning roster for him. I’d like to see him join the eagles but is it worth losing someone like Peters?

    Dez didn’t do himself any favors by saying he wants to stay in division. All he did was give those 3 teams an extreme amount of leverage on him because they know he wants to go there and that will drive his price tag down. All he is doing really is negotiating against himself by eliminating the rest of the NFL and giving all the power over him to 3 teams

    Releasing Marshall creates another need for NYG. If 1 of OBJ/Shep gets seriously injured, donfans trust the depth of RLJr/Travis Rudolph/Cory Latimer To shoulder the load? I am no Dez fan at all but if he is showing a willingness to play for NYG, while tempering his salary demands, why not make a play for him? If Marshall still with the team, I’m not feeling this way but another need has been created.

      Im thinking they’ll draft Barkley and sign Dez and see what Eli can do with some new weaponry.

      Worst case scenario they fail again. Draft a top QB next yr to match with Barkley, and see Eli, OBJ and Dez all find their way out.

    I would sign him to a non guaranteed roster spot let him work the preseason and if he doesn’t work out then cut him off

      Your putting a lot of faith in the guy’s humility. I think he would see that as being about as demeaning as taking catering orders for the team.

    Maybe if he hadn’t made it clear that he’s out for revenge? Teams are probably looking for someone who gives a damn about those other 14 games.
