Dallas Cowboys have considered signing free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant. At least, owner Jerry Jones has admitted he has thought about it.

Bryant played his entire career with the Cowboys. However, he has not played in the NFL since the 2017 season.

“I’ve thought a lot about it in the shower,” was Jones’ colorful quote.

Bryant said he has previously talked with Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones. But the team has not completely dismissed it, or they wouldn’t be talking.

He missed the 2019 season, as he recovered from a torn Achilles injury. He suffered the injury after signing with the New Orleans Saints late in the 2018 season.

After he signed, he tore his Achilles in practice.

The likelihood that Bryant comes back to any team as a premiere wide receiver once again is likely over. However, he may be able to help a team, as a depth receiver, if somebody is willing to take a flyer on him

The Cowboys may only seriously consider this if they lose Amari Cooper in free agency. It’s not clear if the sides have talked since the end of the season.

The 31-year-old Lufkin, Texas native spent eight seasons with the Cowboys before his release.

In his career, he appeared in 113 games, including 99 starts. He had 531 receptions for 7,459 receptions and 73 touchdowns. He also had six carries for -3 yards.

During the 2017 season, his final season with the Boys, he appeared in 16 games, including 16 starts. He had 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

The last three seasons in Bryant’s career, he did not surpass 1,000 receiving yards in a season. He had three straight 1,000-plus yardage seasons and they came from 2012-14.

His last 1,000-plus yardage season came during the 2014 season when he had 88 receptions for 1,320 yards and a career-best 16 touchdowns.
