“I have been thinking about it a lot in the shower. It should not be dismissed. I’m thinking about it.” Jones told David Helman of DallasCowboys.com.
After being cut from the Cowboys before the 2018 season Bryant signed with New Orleans. He suffered a torn Achilles tendon in his second practice in a Saints uniform and sat out the entire 2019 season to fully recover.
During this offseason, Bryant has been posting numerous videos that show him training and catching passes. Recently he worked out with Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes in hopes to get the attention of NFL general managers.
Bryant has admitted he is willing to take a lesser role with the Cowboys tweeting he would like to play the role of Jason Witten.
