The Dallas Cowboys entered the 2019 season with plenty of hype. NFL analysts from around the nation suggested the Cowboys would win the NFC and represent the conference in the Super Bowl.

However, after failing to make the playoffs, owner Jerry Jones and company made a few changes. He fired head coach Jason Garrett and hired former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy.

As the team gears up for the 2020 season, the Cowboys have several massive decisions to make. First up are the contracts for quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper.

If the Cowboys franchise tag Dak, Cooper could be on a new team next season. That would leave a major hole in the Dallas receiving corps. Well, there could be a solution to that.

Reporters asked Jerry Jones if he'd consider signing former Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant. Jones said he has considered it, but in a very awkward way.

When asked if he's thought about signing Bryant, Jones said "I've thought a lot about it in the shower."

Well, it appears Bryant is on board, regardless the wording used.

Bryant racked up 531 receptions for nearly 7,500 receiving yards during his eight-year career with the Cowboys.

The former NFL star also racked up 73 touchdowns - including a league-leading 16 touchdown receptions in 2014.
