Dez Bryant not interested in playing football right now

Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant is a free agent and expects that to remain the case for the time being.

The wide receiver addresses his playing status with a couple of tweets sent on Tuesday. He said in one tweet that he had “no interest in playing football right now.”

In another tweet he said he wasn’t retiring but just “taking care of (himself).”

Bryant expressed in June that he could turn to other interests rather than football.

The 30-year-old was cut by the Dallas Cowboys last year. He went several months without signing despite having interest and offers from teams. He finally signed with the Saints in November but quickly tore his Achilles tendon. Bryant shared video in May that showed himself being able to run and work out, so it seems he might be able to play if he wanted to. For now, he appears content to let NFL training camps get underway without him.

Bryant played all 16 games in 2017, catching 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns.
