"I still think Dez can still high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League".
Witten has predicted that his former teammate, Dez Bryant, will sign with the Packers. I think that's a great spot for him. "He's motivated, and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers".
Thompson's replacement Brian Gutekunst added three young pass catchers in the draft to bolster a receiving corps that already includes Pro Bowlers Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, and when one considers how many targets Graham has typically received over his career, it seems unlikely that Bryant would be able to make any kind of significant impact. "Aaron Rodgers throws that back-shoulder throw well, and Dez (would have) great chemistry with a quarterback who can put the ball wherever he wants".
Witten retired from the NFL and joined ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcast as the analyst, replacing Jon Gruden.
While Bryant hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2014, he would effectively replace Jordy Nelson, who the Packers cut earlier this offseason.
Bryant, however, dismissed the notion of going to the Packers recently - citing "too much history". 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.
Another important thing to note is the fact the Cowboys released Bryant.
Jimmy Graham was also signed by the Packers this offseason. Rodgers won the Super Bowl in 2010 with the Green Bay Packers but hasn't returned, and with far more of his career behind rather than ahead of him, the moment is now.
There's no doubt Bryant has seen a decline in recent years, but that's not to say his tank is completely empty.
