Dez Bryant is ready.
On Wednesday, the three-time Pro Bowler announced on Wednesday, via Twitter, that he’s looking to return to the NFL, and is ready to make an impact.
I’m not trying to go nowhere and be a starter on a team I want to contribute because I know I will be able too… I’m feeling good… in two weeks I’m going to reach out to teams and see what happens…. let’s go X

Bryant, who tore his Achilles during his first practice with the New Orleans Saints last season, is nearly a removed from the injury. The expected recovery time for this type of injury is around eight months, so medically speaking, Bryant should be ready.
However, he hasn’t played a snap in an NFL game since 2017, when he last played for the Dallas Cowboys and finished the season with 69 catches, 838 yards and six touchdowns. Bryant himself may expect there to be some rust, so perhaps that is why he implied he’s not looking for a starting role on a new team.
Bryant is no doubt still a talent and would be a valuable asset on many NFL rosters. Perhaps the Saints would look to add him again to their roster since he’s already familiar with the offense and he could be a compliment to Michael Thomas.
Looks like we’ll be waiting two weeks until we get any answers.
