Dez Bryant responds criticism from Jerry Jones, Shannon Sharpe

Dez Bryant

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones appeared to take a shot at Dez Bryant on Tuesday, and it didn’t take long for the free agent receiver to come up with a response.

In his weekly radio interview with 105.3 The Fan, Jones said the Cowboys have not had a legitimate No. 1 wideout for “several years,” which would include the time Bryant was with the team. When asked to elaborate, Jones implied that Bryant has never been in the elite category of receivers like DeAndre Hopkins and Julio Jones.

Bryant actually agrees that he was never a No. 1 option with Dallas, but he says that had everything to do with scheming and not his level of talent.

Former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe caught wind of Bryant’s response and felt the free agent was being “thirsty,” and Dez fired back at him too.

It wasn’t that long ago that Bryant was considered one of the most dangerous playmakers in the NFL, so it is surprising that he has yet to sign with a team. He recently received an endorsement from one of the greatest players to ever play the receiver position, yet it’s starting to seem like we won’t see Bryant in 2018. Perhaps Jones’ assessment is one that is shared across the NFL.
