Dez Bryant has not played in an NFL game in nearly three calendar years, but that hasn’t stopped the former Dallas Cowboys star from working toward comeback.
Bryant has been busy lately, sharing multiple videos on social media of his workouts. He’s determined to make it back to the NFL, though the odds remain stacked against him.
Bryant has stated multiple times he’d love to return to the Cowboys, but the feeling might not be mutual. After all, Dallas had no problem releasing its former No. 1 wideout two years ago, and that was when Bryant was only 29 and had not yet torn his Achilles.
Cowboys VP Stephen Jones met with reporters today ahead of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Bryant’s name was a topic of conversation, but Jones didn’t have much to say.
On a possible Dez Bryant reunion, Stephen Jones tells me “we’ll go over that as a staff as we move forward. Obviously our focus has been our own guys and guys we had here last year. As we start to expand the web, we will look at things like that.”

After two full seasons out of the NFL, Bryant has been insistent that he’s made strides mentally and physically.
“All the teams who reached out these past 2 years … you didn’t want that Dez Bryant… I couldn’t disrespect myself or the game like that… Im not there yet but my vibe energy and love back believe that,” he recently wrote on Twitter.
Bryant amassed 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys from 2010-17.
