After signing a hefty contract extension in 2015, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant hasn’t exactly performed up to expectations. The Cowboys have already hinted he could be on his way out of Dallas, and a new report tells us other NFL teams no longer consider him an elite receiver. Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report had this to say about how Bryant is currently viewed in the league. “THERE ARE FEW TEAMS IN THE NFL, IF ANY, THAT BELIEVE DEZ BRYANT IS STILL A MAJOR FORCE AT RECEIVER, FREEMAN SAID.” “CONSIDER THE PHRASES SOME TEAMS USED WITH ME TO DESCRIBE HIM: ‘POSSESSION RECEIVER,’ ‘LOST A STEP,’ ‘SECOND OR THIRD OPTION.’ “HE’S VIEWED BY SOME TEAMS AS A RAPIDLY DECLINING TALENT, AND MANY WONDER IF HE CAN BE A GREAT RECEIVER AGAIN.” Knowing he potentially faces a pay cut, or even worse — a release — Bryant recently defended himself.
