Packers unlikely to sign Dez Bryant

The Ravens actually offered Bryant a multi-year deal to which he turned down, wanting more of a one-year deal with a club.

USA TODAY's For the Win looked into who that corner might have been, and it looks like it was former LSU CB Morris Claiborne.

And that's Dez Bryant. We may never know, but Rob Ryan seems to think so.

Witten made it clear that he does not have any inside information about where Bryant might end up, and he also mentioned the New Orleans Saints as another potential landing spot. Bryant has received little interest on the open market.

The former Dallas Cowboys tight end predicted former teammate and now unemployed receiver Dez Bryant would sign with the Packers, calling Green Bay a "great fit" for the Cowboys' all-time leader in touchdown catches, but the team isn't expected to pursue him, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He said that Green Bay would make sense for Bryant, but that at this time the Packers do not appear to be interested in bringing the former star receiver on board.

Despite his connection with Bryant, however, Witten said he does not have any inside knowledge about which teams are pursuing Bryant. The Packers released Jordy Nelson in March and there's not a clear-cut third option behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, although free-agent tight end Jimmy Graham was signed for his receiving prowess and new general manager Brian Gutekunst selected three receivers among his 11 draft picks. I still believe Dez can highpoint the football as good as any receiver in the National Football League.

If the Packers were to sign Bryant, they'd preferably want to get it done prior to OTAs. When he was released, many thought Bryant would find work quickly.

Dez Bryant remains a man without a home, but one former teammate has a feeling where the wideout might wind up."I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities".

As for Jenkins - who was suspended for a game last season because he failed to return after the team's bye week - he has promised to be on better terms with management.
