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 NFL.com 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.
