Dez Bryant shares his thoughts on joining up with Odell, Giants

Just imagine Odell Beckham and Dez Bryant on the same roster.

Bryant certainly has.

Bryant, who was dumped by the Cowboys on Friday, shared his thoughts on Monday about his next NFL home with Mike Fisher, the Cowboys’ Insider for Dallas’ 105.3 The Fan.

“The Giants,” Bryant told Fisher, “got a helluva defense, they’re going to pay OBJ, so coming back. Playing with him, Sterling (Shepard) … the tight end (Evan Engram), (Eli) Manning? Crazy. … They draft (Penn State running back Saquan Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick)? That’d be crazy!”

Bryant, 29, a three-time Pro Bowler during his eight seasons with the Cowboys, reportedly left the Cowboys facility after meeting with owner Jerry Jones vowing to face them twice this year. While Bryant may want to stay in the NFC East, only Washington has the available cap space to offer the star wide receiver anything close to what he’s been making with the Cowboys.

The emotional wide receiver made $ 13 million last season and the Cowboys save $ 8 million by taking him off their books.

But Bryant told Fisher that money won’t be his top concern when he was asked about making “market value.”

“It won’t be about the money,” Bryant said.

Bryant had a down year last year with just 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns. For his career, Bryant has 531 catches for 7,459 yards and 73 TDs.

Before Big Blue faithful get too excited about a wide receiver corps for the ages (the Giants still need to solve the Odell situation), Bryant also said playing with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley in Los Angeles with the Rams would “be fun.”

NFL fans will certainly have fun watching how the Dez situation plays out.
