Dez Bryant holding out for contract offer from Giants?
Dez Bryant has consistently stated that his free agency decision has very little to do with money, and he has already turned down an offer from one team. It would stand to reason that others are interested in the former Dallas Cowboys star at the right price, but perhaps he has narrowed his list down to just one destination.
Jane Slater, who covers the Cowboys for NFL Network, said this week that she believes Bryant is holding out for the perfect situation. To Bryant, that may mean convincing the New York Giants to sign him.
“This guy just wants to compete, and right now it’s a little bit about revenge,” Slater said. “I think he’s holding out to see if New York happens to have a need come training camp. Selfishly, I would love to see Dez Bryant in (the NFC East), covering the Cowboys as much as I do.
“Dez is not going somewhere just to seek employment. He wants to play and he wants to be competitive where he plays. … It’s not about the money for him. I think that’s what people are sort of losing sight of. Dez said to me in our interview, ‘I came from dirt. It’s not about the money. It’s never been about the money.’ This goes back to a competitive situation.”
This is not the first time we have heard that the Giants are at the top of Bryant’s wish list, and that makes sense given what he said immediately after the Cowboys released him. The question is whether or not the Giants want him, as they already have Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard and may not feel they need Bryant.
