Twenty-eight NFL teams are now heading into Week 2. Dez Bryant remains unemployed. However, the wide receiver’s made sure to keep social media followers informed on his thoughts about potential fits this offseason and continued to do so Sunday.
One of the teams Bryant name-dropped, however, doesn’t appear to have him on its radar. The Redskins are not interested in bringing in Bryant, despite having multiple depth receivers suffer recent injuries, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington tweets.
This is not the first time Washington’s surfaced as a confirmed non-Bryant suitor, but that hasn’t changed since the offseason. Washington’s dealing with injuries to backups Trey Quinn, Cam Sims and Maurice Harris, per Finlay, who instead foresees a possible reunion with Brian Quick rather than anything transpiring on the Bryant front.
Quinn, a rookie seventh-rounder, and Sims each suffered high ankle sprains during the Redskins’ win over the Cardinals and are out for the foreseeable future. A concussion left Harris inactive Sunday. These three comprise the Redskins’ backup contingent behind Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson. So, Washington will certainly have to make a move at receiver this week.
Bryant expressed interest in joining an NFC East team in order to exact revenge on the Cowboys, whose post-Bryant receiving passing game did not debut well on Sunday, but he’s also turned down two contracts — from the Ravens and Browns. The 29-year-old pass-catcher continues to wait, while at the same time expressing interest in certain situations.
