Jason Witten believes Dez Bryant will end up with Packers

Jason Witten believes Dez Bryant will end up with Packers

I think that's a great spot for him.

"I still think Dez can still high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League. He's motivated and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers", Witten told The Adam Schefter Podcast.

He sees the veteran wideout going to Green Bay.

Witten pointed out that Bryant has just about every quality that Rodgers would love in a receiver.

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.

A team will give Bryant a chance, but it probably won't be for the money Bryant is looking for.

The Packers had some level of interest in Bryant when he was first release but they have signed drafted wide receiver J'Mon Moore in the fourth round, wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and wide receiver Equanimeous St.

A quarterback like Aaron Rodgers would seemingly be able to get the best out of Bryant, but coach Mike McCarthy has long talked about the dynamic in the locker room as one of the most important aspects to player acquisition.

Other teams that were mentioned as potential landing spots throughout the free agency process thus far for Bryant were the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints.

Green Bay is not expected to sign Dez Bryant at this point in time. That's a vertical passing attack. But he's going to partner with a great quarterback and have somebody who he feels like can contend for a championship. 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. They also have an improved running game with both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams proving to be excellent picks as rookies last season.
