Jason Witten has a shocking new team in mind for Dez Bryant

Jason Witten has a shocking new team in mind for Dez Bryant

Jason Witten, his former teammate, told ESPN's Adam Schefter he predicts Bryant will land in Green Bay.

Shortly after being released by the Cowboys last month, the Baltimore Ravens showed serious interest in Bryant as they wanted him to join Michael Crabtree as another option in the passing game for veteran quarterback Joe Flacco. Dez identified Green Bay as a place he does NOT want to go, because of all the history that he has in Green Bay.

When asked about Dez Bryant and his future in the NFL, Jason Witten said he believes that he will have some "great opportunities". Witten thinks Dez will be signing with another NFC team.

Interest from the Packers' side on Bryant has felt lukewarm throughout the process.

Witten believes Bryant is looking for the best chance to win and a quarterback who can drop accurate fade throws, something every Packer fan knows Aaron Rodgers is more than capable of doing.

"You partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, I think that offense could put up a lot of points and losing Jordy Nelson in the offseason, when they cut him, I think it's a win-win for the Packers".

Additionally, receiver-turned running back Ty Montgomery is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield and Rodgers even has another dynamic TE in Lance Kendricks to line up in multiple tight-end sets.

Witten also mentioned the New Orleans Saints as a possibility, but let's look at the Packers.

When wide receiver Dez Bryant was released by the Cowboys before the draft, one logical landing spot seemed like the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay's top receiver is Davante Adams, and they did add Graham at tight end via free agency.

Last season, Bryant accumulated 838 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Bryant has regressed since signing a five-year extension with the Cowboys before the 2015 season, failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark and double-digit touchdowns in the past three seasons.
