Dez Bryant is Signing With The Green Bay Packers Says Jason Witten

Janoris Jenkins continues to pound drum for Dez Bryant to Giants
Former teammate Jason Witten, the Cowboys tight end who recently retired to join ESPN for Monday Night Football, thinks Bryant would be a good fit on the Green Bay Packers. "Because I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League".
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.
The Green Bay Packers have been a hot topic over the last few days with Dez Bryant being the primary reason.
Witten pointed out that Bryant has just about every quality that Rodgers would love in a receiver.
As Witten mentioned, adding Bryant to a Rodgers-led offense that already includes Graham, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams is a scary thought. Green Bay was forced to release longtime star wide receiver Jordy Nelson this offseason after signing Jimmy Graham and Muhammad Wilkerson. According to Witten, the Packers check all of the boxes for Bryant, who is seeking a one-year deal. Dallas used their first-round pick on Leighton Vander Esch (who they think will turn into a Brian Urlacher-type player) and if he proves he can produce immediately, Lee's future will look much murkier.
The Packers were among two other primary teams - the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens - to have expressed early interest in Bryant.

But even for his Houston Rockets teammates, what they saw from him Tuesday night (Wednesday, Manila time) was on another level. For a variety of reasons (ok, it was mainly injury), the Warriors did not use the Death Lineup against Houston all season.
If the Packers were to sign Bryant, they'd preferably want to get it done prior to OTAs.
Bryant, who turns 30 on November 4, has not posted a 1,000-yard season since 2014.
The 29-year-old missed time due to injury in both 2015 and 2016 before finishing 2017 with 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns as the No. 1 option for quarterback DakPrescott in the passing game.
