Why Is There No Interest in Dez Bryant?

We are seeing more and more owners around the NFL who are unwilling to put up with players who are constantly expressing bad behavior. Dez Bryant was released by the Dallas Cowboys because his antics were not worth the money that they would have had to pay him. He would have been paid $16.5 million against the Cowboys cap in 2018. Jerry Jones is quoted as saying “Of course we pay Dez a lot of money, and he knows that. He’s as aware of it as anybody. He knows when you get paid that kind of money there’s high expectations in terms of the productivity.” Your text to link…

Dez Bryant has reportedly turned down an offer by the Baltimore Ravens of 7 million a year for three years. But now there aren’t many teams that are stepping up to take him on as a player for their team. Dez Bryant has wanted to stay in the NFL East so that he could play the Cowboys twice a year. No team in the NFC East has made an offer to him. Nobody else seems very interested in him either.

So why are teams not offering Dez Bryant a contract? Will McClay, who is the Cowboys VP of player personnel, has indicated that Brian is not able to get open and he has had a lot of inconsistent play with a lot of drops. So you can see, NFL teams are not willing to pay players big money for poor production. It all boils down to performance. NFL owners also do not want to put up with players who bring bad behavior and bad attitudes to their team. Although Dez Bryant only wants a one year contract with a great team, he may not be able to get that. One has to wonder if his bad attitude has more to do with his inability to get a contract rather than his skills as an NFL widereceiver.
