Dez Bryant says he will be ‘pursuing football again shortly’
The 2018 NFL season kicked into full gear on Sunday without wide receiver Dez Bryant on a roster, but he expects to be helping someone soon.
Bryant jumped into a discussion among San Francisco 49ers fans, one of which argued Bryant wouldn’t have been much help in the team’s 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Bryant wasn’t buying that assertion, and assured everyone that he’d be back soon.
You crazy.. I’ll be pursuing football again shortly https://t.co/EgKiUI35AB

Bryant’s response isn’t just noteworthy for its content. It’s worth paying attention to the fact that he jumped into a discussion about the 49ers, a team that he’s previously showed interest in playing for. Maybe he’s hoping that a somewhat middling performance by their offense might spur them into giving him a call.
