Jason Witten Predicts Former Cowboys Teammate Dez Bryant Will Sign with Packers

I mean, I think that's a great spot for him.

This is good news for the Vikings, who won't have to go against Bryant twice a season, unless he signs with the Bears or Lions, which seems unlikely.

"I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities, he's motivated". And that's Dez Bryant.

While the receiver room is crowded in Green Bay, Bryant would give the Packers a veteran playmaker to start opposite Davante Adams, and his skill set - which includes using physicality to make contested catches and create yards after the catch - could still be valuable to a team with Aaron Rodgers under center.

"I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers", Witten said, via the Star-Telegram. Aaron Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well and Dez has great chemistry with a great quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants. That's a vertical passing attack, they need somebody who can stretch the field and that X-factor that is Dez Bryant.

"I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League".

The Packers had some level of interest in Bryant when he was first release but they have signed drafted wide receiver J'Mon Moore in the fourth round, wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Bryant has been a dominant receiver in his eight-year career, but has perhaps lost a step.

Bryant remains one of the biggest names on the free agent market after the Cowboys cut him last month.

Other teams that were mentioned as potential landing spots throughout the free agency process thus far for Bryant were the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints.

Throw Randall Cobb and Jimmy Graham into the mix, and the Packers would have the best receiving corps in the NFL.
