Dez Bryant is still without a team after Dallas Cowboys released him

That’s the view of Bryant’s old Dallas team-mate Jason Witten who believes a link-up with Aaron Rodgers would be ideal.

Bryant was released by the Cowboys last month and is yet to be picked up by a team, despite reported interest from Baltimore Ravens.

The Packers drafted three wide receivers in the recent NFL Draft though they lack established options with Jordy Nelson released and signing for Oakland Raiders.

And Witten, who has retired from NFL and will be a pundit for ESPN, believes Dallas Cowboys all-time receiving touchdowns leader Bryant would be a perfect fit for the Packers.

"I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities,” Witten said.

“He's motivated and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers.

"Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well and Dez has great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants.


"Because I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League."

Bryant made six touchdowns in 2017 from 69 receives.

He went a total of 838 yards - his best return since 2014 when he made 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns.

But the Cowboys said their goodbyes to the 29-year-old because of his inability to beat a man according to Dallas scouting chief Will McClay.

McClay recently said: “It was a collective deal.

“The (inability) to win one-on-one, to win down field. There was inconsistency as well as some huge things in his play.

“So what’s best moving forward for Dez Bryant and the Cowboys, we just made that decision. It’s a production-based business.”
