"Extremely happy for days It shows me that he really wants to play I think they had him in and they said, we need you to be a little better shape and it looks like he went home he worked got in better shape and they brought him back in A. Now they could probably they could use days they have the worst receiving core as far as production they do catch anything yards and touchdown that major skip. So maybe day is is is a person that could help them out immensely and in order for them to to utterly where they need to be skipped they're gonNA have to throw the football. Yeah we know they can run it. But what happens when you don't have the lead gotta throw it, and we've seen over the last couple of years. Lamar Jackson gets to the playoffs bay fall behind and he's unable to bring them back through the football and so hopefully days I, don't know what day is has left. You ask them for lots give a guy that hadn't played in a long period of time who was never a burner to begin with suffered an Achilles injury, and so we don't know. What we're going to get this uncharted territory. We haven't seen anything like this. Basically, he's Josh Gordon but Josh Gordon was four to five years younger when he returned Yeltsin what is currently and Josh Gordon didn't have the injury that they would. Just you know we know Josh Gordon Story. So I'm happy for him. Skip that he's willing to start at the bottom. Yep and to work his way back and says, all I won't was an opportunity you put a door because remember. They tried to sign dance immediately after he got released anything. No. Turns out three years twenty, one million to gob Ultima Baltimore. To come back, basically tweak or twelve thousand dollars a week job well. I'm happy for hopefully it works out. Ditto. When I read his tweet last night that ends with I can't stop crying nearly brought a tear to my eye because. This, still young man. He's thirty one he has suffered. He went from the top of Mount. In two thousand, fourteen, he put up one of those years that you look back on and say that was a year. Right? He dominated this league in two thousand fourteen let it and touchdown catches. Who? First Team, all pro and I'm. On, TV, every day I'm throwing up the every five right everybody wanted. Eggs. In that year obviously ended in Green. Bay. In which Dez caught a finally didn't catch one just for posterity. Could we see? He caught it and he ran with it and he slammed it on the goal line with his left hand like a running back would in the ref on the spot raised his hands to say touchdown. Until it went to replay review that's touched upon review further review. It's not a catch said somebody in new. York. I guess that's a touchdown caught. It ran with it slammed it on the goal line complete control it bobbled even as the ground and it came up on top. So it never touched the ground after he slammed it on the ground. This is as much of a catch as you will ever see, that's a catchy ran to strides with it and had such control in his left hand because he's left handed, he slammed it on the goal line. That's how I will remember Dez Bryant because my team Woulda won that game and going on to Seattle where they had one in the regular season and they just might have beaten those hawks again and got into the Super Bowl they would run into Tom Brady, that were. Also No. Yeah. Okay. I got that but that was really the height of Dez Bryant. And what was the best at? He had incredible all-time time rapport with Tony Romo they loved each other because Tony liked just throw it up for grabs. Yes and the one guy who could go up and grab it the most was this guy. Wasn't the fastest, but he was big and strong and powerful, and he could lead in play basketball and high point you. Beat your brains out. He did make the pro bowl in DAX first year. So I given that but the numbers are about half of what he did and twenty four dre. Jerry paid him after twenty fourteen and he earned it. Yes. He got what's five years seventy million dollars. In Jerry came to regret because he began to fall party at a Jones fracture and this and that and the other, and he had no chemistry at all would Dak and they fell apart and pretty present he's out then he's out of the League and to your point he has an Achilles tear in and it did my heart. Good. Just what was it a couple of months ago? We saw the video of him. Catching off season passes in that workout facility in Fort Worth Frahm your homeboy Yup because Patrick mahomes still has high regard for what Dez Bryant used to be what he achieved in this league. So again, do I think he could contribute for the Ravens will not much contribution they're. They're already I ranked in passing a hundred eighty, nine yards a game maybe fifty, sixty, seventy even early nineties I mean that was good enough. Running game play deepens but not in today's game in today's game, you need a guy because there's GonNa come a time. This is okay. We're not going to let you run the football in order to beat as you could have to throw yourself to a victory. Yeah, and right now. What concerns me is that?.
Lamar Jackson seems to welcome Ravens potentially signing Dez Bryant
"Dez Bryant Free Agent Wide Receiver reportedly in the Baltimore area for a workout with the Ravens Lamar Jackson was asked of a possible playing with three time Pro Bowler we've got a lot of great receivers in the team right now it's up the phenomenon but seeing desperate on instagram stuff like that running his routes competing against quarterback he's looking pretty good on social media if the. Front Office Lights, and we'll have to see when he gets you Brian has made it clear intrigued by the possibility of playing with Lamar Jackson quite the fall from grace from Desmond. What star he was he's thirty one years of age. Where do you think I'm GonNa come back with the Ravens for Dez Bryant I you know I think the issue with Dez has always been. When he goes outside the system, I mean, remember this is a guy that you know the cowboys wanted to take a pay cut to let's go back. Remember I think he was making sixteen million. I could have the numbers com wrong but it's in that area and he was clearly not playing to that level. He didn't have any bursts at the top of the route. He didn't separate his hands where we're really inconsistent, which is an indication of players, loosener legs he. Didn't he's not a guy who's to line up at multiple positions and still function really well because he needs to have a kind of like he needs to be a one place he needs to have his routes. He's not as a thinker of the of the game as he plays. You know he's a slower processing player. So for me learning a new offense with this guy, you know he's worth putting on the team from an executive standpoint if I signed Dez Bryant. And he's not my starting extra my starting see what am I getting out of them so okay, let's go through it. So if I sign them to say a minimum deal, two, million dollars. So I'm on the hook for a million bucks. Okay. If he makes the team on the Saturday of the before the opening game I guarantee salary for a year I got no flexibility there. Right. He can't help me at all in the kicking game. So unless he starting playing in the three receivers set, you know then he's not going to be active. So now I'm paying millions of dollars for a guy that I'm not gonNa have active now if he can. And he's GonNa make a big difference to my team. You know we drafted two receivers one in the third one in the six you know. So those two guys gotta take a back seat. They're cheaper labor force like none of this adds up like if you told me, you want sign Antonio Brown and you WanNa take on the game suspension young. Okay. Because I promise you Antonio Brown walks onto the field. There is nobody on Baltimore steam as good as they think they are at receiver and they have good receivers. There's nobody on that football team as good as Antonio Brown but he's the best player he's the best receiver on the team, but if Dez Bryant walks in. You know is he better than Hollywood? Brown no is see better. The Miles Birkett are Chris more or Willie snead. You know they drafted the dump Rene Texas they drafted the poor kid in the sixth round. So they got two young kids that they drafted like, where does he fit and then I I'm exposed at a million like these are all things like this is called second. Order thinking like it's one thing the media makes this big deal with says, bright. Well, you know does Bryant. Five years ago was a good player does Brian today may not be a good player just because he's a named certainly has from the past that's a different story as to how could translate this season

"My pocket square bill guy gotta be by Nick Foles. Twenty Two nineteen Foles who's his his Kryptonite I can't explain why and Nick Foles I. DON'T I. Don't know back to my man he d he was doing great eating him some old old ass man crow and going right down the yellow brick road toward Tom. Brady's greatness and then he suddenly said he's possibly the greatest quarterback ever possibly. Who Else would you? I'm Joe Montana Man I'm sorry I just. CISCO HILL I don't like that he signed for me. I'M NOT A. Fan. But I'm a Joe Montana Guy Okay. That's fair enough but we go. So Eric. Think about this. The forty three year old Tom Brady. Leads the whole league and what pro football focus calls. Big Time throws got twenty four. He also leads the League in fewest what they call turnover worthy throws. So you combine big time plus fewest turnover. Worthy. YOU GOTTA teen. It's got shot to win it all because Jamie's through this point last year that team had seventeen turnovers through seven games. Now they have seven. Plus five and turnover differential that that's how you win championships and you can see Tom. Brady after he threw that little bit on the sidelines and that game in question at Chicago he he went after he roasted his offensive line on the sideline all of a sudden they're playing the cleanest football in the league. Now no turnovers last two games no sacks the last two games. He is now imposing his sort of New England Patriot way culture on Tampa, and they're starting to resemble the way the Patriots play. Do agree with that I mean you you do see some of Tom Brady putting some of his touch on on that but botching, tell you think i. think that's GonNa really help them is a sign of Antonio Brown I mean and I really believe that Tom Brady had a lot to think about while he was in New England. He was out, he had five catches what tries now new one gay. People say Ali he won't be play I'm GonNa tell you something he was one of the best. He's probably be best. Receive the national football when he left the NFL rows, grey routes works out hard Yummy for you got Mike Evans. You Got Brisk when who's hurt you got broncos playing like Gronk again because he's getting comfortable. So this team be very dangerous I mean. I got. You. Know I know you love time when I love Tom. A sure. But I think Tom is planned. Fantastic with do I. think he's a great quarterback. No doubt if not number one number two in your book number one is always say is who you saw play I played against Montana I play defense but I saw him play close. So best my guy and Tom Brady's your guy. But most definitely he's playing football right now. I was watching skit. What does that thing that showed that? Painting does and he was breaking down. Tom. Brady detail details. Says I wonder what took them so long to allow Tom to run Tom Please? Yeah. If you can tell this offense yeah, and all this other stuff no risk it no biscuit we're GonNa just thought about it. Because you got a row Jones whose fourth the league, Russia he didn't they didn't run the ball particularly well on Sunday d but they rounded enough that when he put up, put it hand in his belly and he rolled over and those lamb back stepped up gronk with right in there behind him. Scotty middle was right in there behind him Mike. Gabel who's right in there behind him and that's Tom Brady life to Leo and he could looking in the backfield lawson and little the ball over your head Tom Brady is not a guy that plays for field goals. Tom, Brady will catch Oh. Okay. Hearing authorities ball. Launched. About fifty five air distance in the air in the back pile of the end zone and they got test that right before the and then they get the ball coming out this thing. Yup. So I got an answer to hall of famers on talking to right now. Is there any resentment on either of your parts that he is still going strong at forty three when your positions did not allow you to play into your forties? No. When allow there was you? Play I. Bet Eighty I. wanted to play one more year. It has CBS not called me and offered me slip basically the same money that I was GonNa make Popo I have played that year but that was it fifty was going to be here for me so either I was going to be fifteen retired or I'll be fifty I'll be fifteen or somebody TV but no I'll.

Frustrated with fallout from his weekend gathering, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott clarifies, says fewer than 10 people were at house
"Back to us. Dak Prescott held a social gathering over the weekend. No social gatherings right now. I don't care you know if you it under ten overs over ten just Nixon. Everyone else is eating the poop right now. You do too Mr quarterback anyway. He held a party. And Zeke Elliott was also there and Dacca's upset because he thinks it's been blown out of proportion by the media and by idiots like me saying it wasn't more than ten people it wasn't out of control it wasn't a ranger But Steven Jones says Tuesday in an interview with the fan in Dallas that he talked to both Prescott and Elliott about not conducting gatherings while most of the country remains under quarantine. Here's what Stephen Jones had to say Blah Blah Blah Blah. And then do press got released a statement. Where do you come down on this March attack? Angry with them furious furious. I think two things Jane slater followed up to report that some of the images that showed the swanky bizarre looking party center was actually a a local restaurant called Nick and Sam's that she's been to and they actually took their own photos of the spread. They sent to Jack on with all these things in general. It's like if if someone were to from a PR angle examine what I did from age. Twenty to twenty eight. It would be a horrific story for the nation to follow along in general. Let's try to stay. Let's just like not get in our own way while the entire country is gripped by the biggest Health Related News. Story of our lifetime and your deck. Prescott and Zeke Elliott hanging around eating lamb wings or whatever it is eating. It's just why this wings when they don't know what was on the menu. I might be right. I have to stop. Lamps brings to stop going to my neighbor's front yard every day at five o'clock and sitting eight feet across from each other here. You're sitting across from each other not having a party inside your house with all having dinner at the same table. He said less than fewer than ten people right. I mean it's hard to keep track of the rules and get a handle on severity when the messages so mixed from layers at the national state and Cable News Levels. Dr Ci Telling People that Hate. Take a swing on tinder if you need to. He basically said it on that podcast. We mentioned if you're if you're willing to take the risk. Go down the Tinder Avenue. She said shoot. Your shot is basically what he said. So it's a dangerous time in the Corinthian because this is kind of a screw it time. Meaning some of my like. I'm sick of this screw. It like I am tired of doing this. I'M GONNA have my friends over. I've been doing this for weeks. It's tired and I WANNA see my girlfriend. Whatever IT MAY BE. It's sort of the screw it period and I think maybe that's what that got into my question. Why is Dak hosting anything? He shouldn't be hosting a heap. That means he has to pay for food and drink and everything. There's like six different people on the cowboys. That should be hosting party. Zeke should be hosting the Marcus. Jalen all of those guys who have been paid I picture. Dak and his front door charging twenty dollars a Solo Cup to come in. He's the last guy who should be hosting. They should be hosting him. It's not the end of the world but it's also west like days after he's out working out with Dez Bryant and everyone's got their arms around each other and at some point. Yeah you're young and you make mistakes again. It's not the end of the world. But you're also like an example for everyone tracking Dak Prescott in the state of Texas and like if it's cool that he's just going out like basically living his life as normally does and other people think that they can't do

"In In touchdowns remember twenty fourteen ended with Dez caught it because he did catch it but he didn't get the catch and they didn't can get the win at Aaron. Rodgers and Aaron went on to Seattle where Dallas had won a regular season game anyway. The point is that was a big time year fresher. He got his money that day. So I am tweeting from the gate at the airport on my phone who ray for Jerry he got it done and he got it done to the tune of five years seventy million dollars and it seemed like a lot of money but it also seemed like does was worth it. Do you realize little did I. I know sitting at my gate at l._A._X.. I had seen the best of Dez Bryant that was it. I had seen the best of you Dez caught it that that was the height of disease and from that moment on it went straight downhill because ironically he quickly suffered what is called a Jones fracture. You're not Jerry Jones Jones fracture in his foot that derailed him and then that led to another injury which led to another injury. He's a high contact tacked receiver who tries to run through a lot of contact in his you know he became a broken down shell of himself and he had no report with with the new quarterback. In Two Thousand Sixteen Dak Prescott drafted in the fourth round he took over for his soul mate Tony Romo who threw him a thousand jump balls and he caught about five hundred underdown thanksgiving. I WANNA make sure I'm not trying to look if there's is suffering from anxiety or mental illness. Hopefully he can get so I'm it. was you know you don't feel any compassion but what I'm what I am doing is. I don't believe that the reason why days Brian is not currently playing in the N._F._l.. is is because the issues about T._M._Z.. Breaking story I totally agree have disappeared Dez would crawl back to be able to be in that spotlight again and as much anxiety and depression as it might cause he misses his football and I feel sorry for him because his his career got derailed way away prematurely. He's just turned thirties. Here's a guy that grew up in Lufkin Texas though not mistaken now we now we've we thought could wire with a Laker your fan. We thought Paul George put his dreams. It was was to play for the Dallas cowboys as a wide receiver yeah he got that there are no clippers clippers in Dallas so skill you mean to tell me Dan. Bryan is perfectly okay with his career. The last we remember Dan right him getting cut by the Dallas cowboys and his father. You're in Dallas. You you tell me Brian is okay with that on his resume no way no how skill Carmelo Anthony has gold medals Cardinal. Anthony led the League in scoring. He's been the second in the M._v._p.. He wants to go out and the way he wants to go but they have to go out the last what we remember him being released in his last year in Dallas Dave somebody by that and so just ahead of Jerry giving being him is big deal in two thousand fifteen in rappaport of N._F._l..

And with the saints NFL analyst, Mike, thanks a saints could be interested. I think Sean would like to give him an opportunity again. He's coming off the D. Achilles injury deaths was looked as though yet loss of step even before that. So I think he just doesn't have a lot of options. But I think the saints would like to give him an opportunity. The last time Brian reached over one thousand yards receiving was in twenty fourteen with the
Where will Antonio Brown land?
"And Tonio Brown. I'm seeing a lot of different names. I theorized yesterday. Carolina could be interesting. They've got their lebian bell and Christian McCaffrey. They've got a defensive coach what they don't have with Cam who's not a great precision thrower. But he does throw a great deep ball is get them a big time home run threat. Do you think there's a place and it could happen? Very quickly. We're in Tonio Brown lands. I wanna make your podcast, which which is on overnight or whatever. And I'm worried that we're going to say something now, and he's going to be traded in the next two minutes. I'm going to try to give us a vague enough answer. So we can live online, Colin. I would say this don't just believe all the teams that are not how this works. There's going to be a surprise team. I love the Carolina fit. I actually think that's a really good one out of the conference another team. I would give you the New Orleans Saints. And you might be saying, oh, come on the saints have no money to spend. They've got all these guys. They've gotta take care. Mike thomas. There are ways to make it work. And if you think about what would Sean Payton has been about the last few years, it's making a splash going and getting the guy trading a first round pick for next year to get Marcus Davenport signing Dez Bryant, he denied it at the combine because his name was linked to it a little bit Sean say that we're not I wouldn't be shocked at the.

So he's not. Yeah. The worry is going away. He starting to feel it a little bit. And I also think that now that they've got. Yeah. Now that the offensive line has started playing better. I think Limin is one of those coaches that if you give him good tools. He's gotta have the the star players. Health scheme is more like how did Laura's put it like his sorry OCC? C C put it his scheme is kind of more dependent on star players. I think that was actually our Flynn rabble rouser. Oh, it was rabble. Yeah. It was. Yeah. Yeah. He made that comment that he'd heard that. And I said that makes really good cysts. They've got the you know with Dez Bryant was Dez Bryant, then Lenihan could make things happen. Even with the rookie quarterback. Then does fell off things didn't work. They did replace him successfully. Now, they've got the star wide receiver in and even if he only gets three catches thirty six yards, which is the way the office flows. That changes how limiting calls the game. He's always had the star running back. And now he's giving the star play out of his offensive line. He's he's set to go now. And I think it may really I think people may be wildly disappointed. By how will live hand does the rest of the season, at least, I hope. So I mean, I would like to see them make a change even if they have a really good run into the playoffs and Gulf you games. Yeah. But I I would too, but I wanna see the little hand succeed the rest of the way, and maybe make that a harder decision than it should be. And I want to mention before we get out of here in the next five minutes or so I wanted to talk about that. Because a lot about Amari Cooper in about just the receiving general. If you go back, and you look at this game, you you're like some of those out there that are just trying to throw that wet blanket on it saying, we'll the Cowboys should have done much more against this defense. Look at the way, it Lanta Atlanta play they played the defense played about as good a game as they possibly could have played because they were they were their backs were against the wall to they were trying to win this game. They were trying to stay, you know, they were trying to stay above, you know, get to five hundred stay in. The playoff race because they are under achieving. Okay. But you look at what if you look at that game. And you say you don't well, I don't know what Amari Cooper didn't that game. Then you don't know football because Amari Cooper on that ball that. I remember when I said to you, Tom that the reason I liked Amari Cooper. It was because I like a receiver that can catch a bad ball. I like I like a guy that can help that. Can you know help his quarterback out that can bail them out when you saw that pass to the sideline that he caught that was well above his head that he went up and got and came down with it. That is what I'm talking about. Yes. That is what I'm talking about. Keeping the chains. Moving keeping his offense out there yet he might have only had three catches for thirty six yards. But man, they were big catches. Beasley misses that. Touchdown catch yet. He he's gonna hit himself and beat himself up about that. But he also put him in position to kick that game winning field goal. Yes. And and mainly Gallup. Had a nominal play. And they they may have a problem in that. Because Michael Gallup is the question will because of his family traffic. Yeah. That is a tragedy. I don't wanna go mentioned much of it. But I just want to say that our thoughts are in our prayers are with the Gallup family that was a tragic ending to up to a great day for the Cowboys on the field. But he needs to take care of what he needs to take care of everybody else will just move forward..
Le'Veon Bell doesn't report to Steelers and can't play this season
"Expires. That's part of the CBA. It's been part of the CBA for twenty five years. But the Steelers are the ones who. Initiated this process. They blocked Levy on bell from going to the open market and getting maximum compensation for his abilities last year. He chose to stay away from the off season program training camp preseason and people were upset and the Steelers were calling out. How dare you not show? Look he didn't have to the rules that the Steelers initiated allowed him to stay away until right before the start of the season make his full twelve point one million dollars and not show up for anything before week one. And he did it and he got vilified for it. Now this year the Steelers do it again, they restrict him once again from going to the open market. So it's his prerogative to not show up for off season training camp preseason regular season. And Chris I don't think he went into the regular season intending to skip the whole year. I think initially it was well, let's see how they do with James Connor. And maybe if they struggle they'll offer me more than eight hundred fifty five thousand a week, and then that didn't happen. So there goes that. And then I think he was gonna show up around. Seven during the bye. And then there was talk about trading. And so I'm not gonna show up then. And I think as we got closer to the end of the line that Tuesday after week ten everyone became aware of it come next year the Steelers if they franchise tag him again, they're gonna have to use that quarterback tender, right? And I think that's when bowel realized you know, what I'm gonna make it to the open market. Whether I play or not I'm just not gonna play. I'm going to give up an extra six million to ensure that I can finally after two years of waiting. He can finally go to the open market and go to the highest bidder. And that that's that's American at its core in a capitalist society. We should be applauding the efforts of any wanted to try to position themselves to get the most money possible. That's what makes our entire way of life revolve. The idea that we're all going to go out there. We're gonna try to capitalize on every situation we can business and professional makes most as much money as we can. That's the American way. But yet on bell does it and we get upset with him. But. Steelers are the ones who have kept him for making the most money. He can he's merely reacting to the moves the Steelers have made to prevent him from getting paid the way. He should that's right. And really, I mean, it's the only profession in the world that this goes on it really is. I think that's the big thing too. I mean, we talked about it a little in the first year and to a point you made in the first hour with all the good points. You just made explaining that. You know, if if love EON bell was still deciding whether he wanted to come back within the last ten days the final nail in the coffin was Dez Bryant tearing his achilles. Tendon in practice that you brought that up in the first hour. And I think that's another great point. You know, we just sit there and think, oh, he, you know. Yeah. You think about this the football game? Well, no practices physically demanding as well. So and stupid things can happen in practice. I've seen guys tear their achilles and tear their ACL's in practice. No contact or a guy tripping and falling on the guy's knee. So, you know, all those things have to be taken into account, the only negative and you told them. Remember, remember, Brandon Marshall story right of half freaked out. He was when you were playing with him in Denver. They hadn't gotten his contract yet. And he's still had regular season games to play being that's going to be. If bell had showed up that would have been his life for the rest of the year because you can't shut that down about you can say, you're not thinking about it. Right. You're thinking about you're thinking about it. And usually when you're thinking about stuff like that. Then you're not playing to your full total capabilities, and aggressiveness, and it's usually the guys that lack aggressiveness that ended up getting hurt in the NFL and those type of place. But yeah, Brandon Marshall I'll still remember we're in Philadelphia in the locker room the Broncos had promised him they would reopen and give him a new contract that didn't happen. I think it was week fifteen we're going into Philadelphia. We're in the we're in the bathroom looking ourselves in the mirror before we go out. And he's kinda yelling at them. Like, you are right. And he goes I just can't play like this. I can't play like this. I know I'm so close to you know, finally, breaking the Bank and making all this money for the future betterment of. Mm and his family, and so many things and it's hard to let it loose. When that's in the back of your mind. So yes, there you have to give a guy like Le vian, some compassion and a sport and football at the running back -sition. There are no guaranteed contracts. And he's just using the tools that he sees necessary to benefit himself. And the other thing too is the only thing I say is negative here. Mike, this is the only negative for really levian bell. Is that he loses one year in his prime. That's the only thing I can look at you know, you only have so many years of being that top shelf type football player. And he was that. And he just loses one year. I doesn't matter in the long run. But I'm just saying that's the only thing I would bring up yet. Yeah. But here's the thing. And I understand how the aging process works that applies to everyone in the NFL except Tom Brady. You look at it this way. You kind of doing an advance on your retirement like like, we don't know how long he would have played if he had played this year. But you could make the argument that his career will last as many total years is it would have if there's going to be one more tacked onto the end then would have been right now because he's he's avoiding the wear and tear, and I think for running backs it's more about wear and tear than aging, right? Because you really don't start to lose a step until you're on the wrong side of thirty five. And I think physically the body is still going to be in a position where it can withstand the pounding at that age if it hasn't taken the pounding earlier, and we're seeing guys like Frank Gordon Adrian Peterson get it done deep into the thirties. I think that that for a running back giving up a year now could ultimately lead to adding a year later, but we'll never be able to disprove or prove because we won't know how long would have played if he hadn't sat this year out. We put up a poll question before the show. Do you support labor on Bell's decision to skip twenty eighteen right now fifty three percent? No forty seven percent. Yeah. It was fifty fifty right away. And and I'm surprised there are as many who say, yes. Because I thought the knee jerk reaction for most fans would be he's in the wrong. Why would he choose not to play football? He doesn't love football. He doesn't love his teammates. He doesn't love America. He doesn't love God. I mean, that's where some of these arguments. Go it's ridiculous. How these arguments quickly spin out of control. I'm glad to see forty seven percent of the people out there understand how it should be interpreted. And how we should be reacting to a guy who's making a business decision based upon what he thinks is right for him. Yeah. It's actually an encouraging number. That's why I looked at I expected it to be like sixty five thirty five, and you know, people not supporting his decision. I really did. But you know, hopefully, we are us to included are educating people about this process, and that it is a business and every player has to approach the NFL as their own singular entity as you yourself are the business here, and hey, I could speak to it. Myself, mike. I mean, I got I got tendered as my fourth year in the NFL. Right. I said, you know, what we went to the playoffs the year before I played really good. I could have asked for more money as a starting quarterback and football. But he said, you know, I said I'll I'll take one for the team and be good and be a good soldier to everybody else. Well, you know, what happened in week four? I lost my spleen that was never the same. And I never really got to capitalize the way I should have. So you know, it's all fine and dandy game. Plans are all great until you get punched in the mouth like Mike Tyson used to say, and those are the things that happen in football, which is of course, incredibly physical. So that's really the bottom line for bell. It's good.
New Orleans Saints most likely days away from signing Brandon Marshal
"We got reports during the week that the saints worked out both Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall. Member. Brandon Marshall started this season in Seattle was cut by the Seahawks last week. Well, now, according to reports out of New Orleans Brandon Marshall is going to sign with the saints probably tomorrow or Tuesday. So they'll turn to him and give him a shot because they really are thin. I mean, yeah, they have they have Mike and Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram is back. But there's still there's they're thin.
"dez bryant" Discussed on WEEI
"Before it even got started. And this potentially may be the end of Dez Bryant career as a whole he's gonna be out a while obviously rehabbing from a torn achilles. And any of course, has to try to latch on with another team. And he's going to be a year older. We may have seen the last desk, Brian, and you hate to see it go like this. You never want to see a player's career end literally with an injury like this. And it's amazing because it's like the conveyor belt of veterans. The latest is that Brandon Marshall is going to be the next guy that the New Orleans Saints bring in apparently they had him in for a tryout. They were impressed with what he did. And he's the next guy that potentially is gonna get an opportunity to play with drew Brees and resurrect his career about that from Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall to what Carol Owens, can you take the gold jacket from te'o and stick him out there and a gold uniform. Unbelievable. Right. Not the news. You want to hear? I know. There's a lot of people out there don't like Dez Bryant. In fact, I'm not a Dez Bryant fan per se. I think Dez Bryant antics are just over the top Dez Bryant. Frankly, annoys me, I think Dez Bryant a guy that just seemingly doesn't understand the limitations in his career right now. But I do have to say that watching Dez Bryant on hard knocks right? When he got to the Browns facility. And he walked around and he went up to everybody, including guys it just seemed to be guys. And just you know, I mean a lot of times if you're just a low level type of team employees. I'm not sure players give you the time of day. Right. Maybe I'm wrong. But I don't think guys give you the time of day. And here's a guy. That's not even on the Cleveland Browns. Go into the facility giving everybody the time of day, high fiving guys love taps, all that type of thing. Even hop do. With the Cleveland Browns radio network did a short little thing with them. I mean, very interesting to see the dynamic desk, Brian there may be putting on a show because the cameras are there, and he wants somebody to pick him up that might be the situation. But overall, though when you watch Dez Bryant and the excitement he seemed to have this week signing with the New Orleans Saints to me, I was happy for the guy. The guy thinks he has football left in his veins. Then by all means, go out and play football. Nothing wrong with that. But sadly Dez Bryant not going to get that opportunity. And here's the problem. Okay. Let's expand this conversation pass just the loss of Dez Bryant. Here's where it gets very interesting. Dez Bryant was out of football all season. But I'm sure Dez Bryant was working out keeping himself in shape. He has a hard working guy when it comes to the football field and Dez Bryant thought he was in football shape Dez Bryant shows up in camp. And the whole talk was the shop paint think he's ready to play this Sunday. Now, we could have been a freak injury. It could have been just something that was unavoidable. We don't know. But sometimes you wonder a guy being in good shape at a guy being football shape. There certainly is a difference between the two. And the bottom line is when you look at how this happened and your say a Latvian bell sitting out right now considering coming back on Tuesday and lay beyond bells in decent shape. Becky's playing pickup basketball at the fitness in Pittsburgh. Maybe you have to start wondering is it worth be coming back? When I think I'm in good shape, when frankly I may not be in football shape, and I could hurt myself going to practice. There's always that concern, especially when there's tens of millions of dollars riding on the health Alavi on bell. No way to Dez Bryant everything that he would tear his achilles in probably a non contact drill days after signing with a new team getting himself, ready, probably feeling in the best shape of his life. Because he hasn't gotten hit a long time. He hasn't been you know, part of contact in a long time, and he just think to yourself. He probably felt in the best shape. He's been maybe ten. Years. I'm a hundred percent kept myself in shape. I've gotten up early every day I've been going to the gym. I've worked out the personal trainer meeting. Well, taking my vitamins and supplements. Man, I am ready to dorm ready to show the world that Dez Bryant is not finished that there's plenty of football left in the body of deaths. Bryant. But yet something freak is a torn achilles. You have to think to yourself. Did he rush himself back to quick was he just not in football shape to his body? Couldn't hold up the wear and tear of an NFL practice. It's all speculation. And I get that. I'm not a doctor. I wasn't there to examine Dez Bryant. I didn't give him a physical. But it is a cause for pause. If you're a lady on bell that's going to do the same thing. Comeback midseason. Heck come back a week. After even a Dez Bryant comes back, and you can't say, yeah. We'll desert old boy those rickety dis Dez is what twenty nine thirty years old. He's not an old guy whereas body's gonna just give out like that. On bell. There's gotta be some sort of concern about what shape I'm in. And how you know how how much energy do? I exert in practice because I'm worried about an ACL. I'm worried about an achilles. I'm worried about any sort of an injury freak or not that could occur and derail the entire plans that I have heck I've sat out and giving up eight and a half million dollars and counting by the way. Because he's probably not gonna play next week even if he shows up Tuesday, although he make like that paycheck who knows how that works. But he didn't sit out and give back eight and a half nine million dollars. Only to get hurt the whole point of giving up eight and a half million dollars. Which is a boatload of money was to stay healthy. So I'll tell you what Sean I mean, you played a little bit of football football shape and just being in good off-season shape. There's a difference. Right. Guys will be coming off the street, and sometimes it works out asking Aaron Donald a Walter Jones. Ask guys in last bell just last year when he sat out and showed up week one. And then played a Pro Bowl level. Of course, was an all pro. But the reality is you have to wonder after watching what happened to Dez Bryant. How hard do you practice early on how committed are you in practice when you first get there? And how apprehensive do you get now considering Dez Bryant career potentially is literally over because who's going to pick them up coming off this injury. So I'll tell you Sean, gotta be concerned. Right. Well, I played as much professional football as you have. So you played at forgive professional football. But you know, what used to keep yourself in shape? Yeah. No, I get what you're saying. I think it's for his desk. Brian is concerned. I don't think career is finished. He's only. Thirty years old will be thirty one next year. We've seen players in the NFL come back from an achilles tear late in their career. I'll LA Steve Smith senior. And he was what thirty six when he tore his achilles came back. The next year put up eight hundred receiving yards with Joe flacco throwing the football. So that's that's that's a really good. But yeah, leave you on Bella if I were him. I this would scare me. I'll be like, you know, what I'm going to be a free agent to March. Anyway, I don't need to play any of the games this season to get that extra year free agency. Right because he's going to be afraid to regardless right? Right. Doesn't he's got the years. Right. So it doesn't need to play this season unless he wants. Six million dollars and unless I guess possibly wants to win a championship which the Steelers definitely contenders. After put putting up fifty on Carolina. So yeah, I definitely would practice with caution. If I were to play our labor on belt, don't you think? I mean, how many times have we seen freak non contact injuries? Look as a jet fan. I remember Durell rebus you're going down. Right. Remember that how the tornadoes Seattle and a game with non contact. He tried to shift his body changed directions. Right. And just crumpled over we've seen that time and time look teddy Bridgewater had that severe injury. Right. That was a non contact injuries. So reality is you never know. And if you're lazy on Belen, it's all about preserving your body any sort of drills in terms of practice any sort of drills in terms of you know, even getting ready for a game and even playing in the game yourself out there. That's why I thought it was so curious to hear and read that on bell was playing basketball earlier this week. Because of that very reason, you know, he's at a higher risk of getting injured playing basketball. You would think then. We're working out. You're you're right. And that's why it's dumb to hear. He's playing basketball. I know token, though, like you said you got to work out. You got to keep yourself in shape. And there's always that risk. You're gonna get injured regardless. But you know, basketball, though, I, you know, so many things can happen. You just. I don't know how competitive he was playing basketball. We don't know. But still that's just so you know, what though Sean is one to jump up and down on a treadmill? Right. It's one thing to run on a treadmill? It's run didn't even I wouldn't do the treadmill. That's where you tear. Your kill is my Kile's barks every time on the treadmill? You know what? Then go go to the local high school, and, you know, run around the track whatever, it might be whatever he's doing. There's always that chance can keeping yourself in shape. There's always that risk of hurting yourself. So when was the last about minimizing? You know, it's about minimising. That's the whole point. It's about minimizing the potential to hurt yourself and putting yourself in a situation of even playing rec league picker basketball, your I think increasing the odds of something happening. And I think that's dumb. If you are Levy on bell you walk around in bubble wrap. Because the fact you just cannot afford to be injured. You can't have an injury that adjusts Brian just got because that's gonna cost you tens of millions of dollars because you can't afford to get a year older at the running back position. Here's the problem for Dez Bryant yet. Guys have come back at you know, Steve Smith at thirty five thirty six with a torn achilles. But Dez Bryant has shown over the last three years a staggering amount of regression his abilities. Right. There's Bryant was a legit number one star receiver. He was and then he slowed down. The separation was gone. We Dez Bryant at twenty seven. Twenty eight twenty nine years old got old and to me people already knew he was older else debut teams Khlong all over each other to signed Dez Bryant based on the productivity had years before the Cowboys. So teams already were kinda weary of Dez Bryant of the fact that he seemed to have prematurely-aged now you thrown an achilles on a guy that had no ability to separate. I'll tell you what who's going to take a chance. Who why no one wants to take a chance on him? Now. The only reason why the saints were opening the doors because they're that desperate for a wide receiver. I just think it's going to be hard for him. And look he's got a rehab. He's going to, you know, put all his energy into getting better. And I get that. I wish the best. But I'm telling you what we may have seen the last two Dez Bryant at least for the short term. We have impossibly for the long term as well. So a very bad situation. Poor desk Brian gets himself. Obviously injured not the final word yet. But the story is that it looks like he will apparently begun with a torn achilles. All right. Other big stories here in terms of week number ten of the NFL season, bad news. The Baltimore Ravens as they fight for their playoff lives here when it comes to quarterback. And also I'll tell you what how about Leonard fournette apparently coming back and he saved the Jacksonville Jaguars season. It's all next is going deep. Dan schwartzman. NBC sports radio in the.

"And that's that's the thing when you aren't playing you do anything to get out there anything. Okay. But think back you had legendary battles with Dez Bryant Redskin Cowboys. And you you held your own often. I thought got the best of it fair to say, they they won more games. And I think we did I think okay. But think about it. Do you have? I didn't lose sleep covering. Thank you. Okay. So I think you're still living in the past view of death. Because I don't know that guy that guy you used to that guy. Last year was a shell of himself. Will skip thing about the game. I didn't even play against the Cowboys. I think the second time in Dallas where we hit on all burgundy what did they go for net game which game last year two years. I wanna say last year last year in Dallas one hundred yard game in the regular season. I'm very long time. I thought he had a hundred that not hit two touchdowns. Yeah. He might have got two hundred yard game with that playoff game against the Packers. I got no memory. I'll I can remember as he led the NFL drops last year. Let me tell you why disagree with because there was never gonna put the work in for that. He's putting in New Orleans for Dallas, you got into comfortable they had gotten comfortable realizing that this what dads can do. They was never gonna get imaginative like shot like jewelry fish, Sean Payton meals. And so they weren't gonna allow him to do what they thought he could do because they had gotten comfortable and he had gotten comfortable so being late to meeting meetings blowing off meetings, not showing up for treatment things that he won't do in New Orleans was always going to do in Dallas because I get away with it because they enable to him because Jerry trinity like literally like a son coproduction intolerance v. Win the production is up here. You almost tolerate anything. Now all of a sudden production starting to do this. Oh, now, we can't have tolerance. Right. Right. So all of a sudden ask you he'd be late for meeting that he's always been late for. Would run as a problem? He's showing up he blowing up treatment. Now. All of a sudden if a problem when you give you sixteen down fourteen yard, that's not a problem. So no, the Cowboys are not gonna miss it. Because they're gonna say, you know, what had you worked that hard. Hedge been that diligent had you been that respectful of the time here, you would still be here crept, which is why as a cowboy fan, I'll take Amari Cooper over Dez Bryant any day or any night. And I will take him on the night of Thursday. What is it November twenty nine at Gerry world when Dez comes home quote unquote, day person, he he'll say..

"He makes one plate that helped them advance. That's a good point. Yep. Great signing. Yep. They're not bringing Dez Bryant on to catch five six passes. A game have six seven touchdowns in a seven game. That's not what he's there for joining this team. He's the third option at best. Michael Thomas, Kamara he might be fourth behind tree once he might be. So with that being said how much he just has to make a play. Remember big play. Shay, just one place. Get one player game. If he can get one play the now all of a sudden they're home for the entirety of the playoffs. He makes one plate that helps them advance. Great signing, great signing. So for me how much does he help? I don't know. I thought he looked heavy in the video if reported that they ask him to lose another five pounds, which means they want him to lose around ten to twelve pounds. Skip. But can't he help in? I guess one of the receivers just are. So basically, they need him more now than probably ever had because they're gonna be down to three receipt. So not only do they need the body. They needed someone that's played in big game important stepped up and may plays yet. So how much? If they get home field. He makes a play to help them get home field. He makes a play that helped them advance. Great signing. Okay. I accept that. And I agree with that. First of all before I say what I'm going to say from my heart. I am happy for Dez Bryant because I believe he was in danger of being done. I believe he was in danger of being kept permanently on his couch by the NFL. It was going to be a sad into what used to be a great strain Dallas because we both. Agreed. There was that stretch twelve thirteen and fourteen. I thought he was the best receiver in football. And I'm not being a hypocrite. But I used to throw up the X because he deserved it. He earned it. He he was the ex he was the spirit of the Dallas Cowboys offense with Tony Romo is a quarterback. Right, obviously. I thought he just he just ruined as last year. I mean room Dak last year because he was pretty much ruined as a receiver. I thought he's a broken down shell themselves. Right. And he led the league and drop balls last year. So as a cowboy fan, I'll take Amari Cooper right now any day or any night over Dez Bryant. I'm happy to go forward with Amari Cooper. I do not fear Dez Bryant on November. Twenty ninth at Gerry world is Thursday night. It's going to be a spectacle personal. Yeah. Okay. Well, I'm glad he's saying that because he's going to come in over aunt just spilling over with bad blood trying to get even with Jerry Jones and the Cowboys and all those Cowboys fans who attack me on Twitter. You know, he's gonna be he's going to be out of his mind. And I'm gonna put the over under on drops that night at three and I'll probably take the over on that. Now, you remember there? There was a maybe it was hard not. So something to Cowboys and dads went to everyone of the DB's. You can't guard me you can't guard me you can't guard me you can't guard me. Now, a lot of those guys that he said they couldn't guard it might be still on that roster. So he feels very comfortable like, oh, you couldn't guard me when you knew exactly what I was doing. Because if you play with a guy being on the same team for number of years, they know tendencies they know plays. So now, I'm gonna. Different system. If you couldn't guard me when you knew what I was gonna do. You can't guard me now, I believe there's will be on his best behavior. But here's the thing. Skip drew Brees lives in a world that you don't complete seventy percent. Seventy.
Dez Bryant lands one-year contract with surging New Orleans Saints
"I don't obviously. But if I did because who cares? We don't care about the money because it's not our money. Well, let's make it your money guys. Would you spend three hundred and fifty million dollars? If feel competent about it on Bryce Harper. No, I wouldn't. But I do want to say thanks to listen to you make a lot of arguments there in the make a lot of sense. But you can't throw the he's never wanna playoff series, Adam. Because you're the one that's been a spa espousing for the golden bat thing there are many times where he doesn't even get a chance to win those playoffs. Series everything else in that sense rival, thank you drag. Well, that's the let's take that have ninety percent of what I say all the time makes sense. Listen. Traits usually fifties ninety. I mean, that's that's pretty good. But that's the problem dry. Problem with baseball. You're going to pay a guy standing Gundy said this yesterday, you're going to pay three hundred and fifty million dollars who comes up four to five times a game. It's ridiculous. And when he comes off you bats to forty eight it's absurd absurd. Absurd. I listen. I agree with you. And yet he's going to get it from somebody. As is Scott Boris, his agent says Harper's bazaar is now open. Okay. We'll see where that goes. All right. Let's go to college. Let's start in basketball for Zion. Williamson RJ Barrick camera Duke. Did it Kentucky? I have said Stuart's gonna make people pay attention to college basketball before we normally do which is after the Super Bowl. Yeah. It made us. I mean, listen, we've never talked about college basketball so early in the season ever in the history of our show, and we were talking about it yesterday because Duke stole the show they stole the sports worlds. I am Williamson. The thing about Zion. Williamson guys he was a YouTube sensation before this. So everyone knew about this. But to see play out against Kentucky article and to see that he's just not a dunker. He's the guy who has actual game. He has range. He has touched. He could distribute the ball. It is it is absolutely breathtaking. It was amazing to watch. And. Yeah, we're all going to tune into watch. These freshmen bly and watched it fifteen play at see if maybe if they can go undefeated. Maybe it'll be the best team ever, which is saying something when you consider the school. We're talking about it was amazing. It was fun to watch. They had made college basketball interesting in a way that it hasn't been the regular season for college basketball in a way that it hasn't been since maybe the fab five I don't know what the last time we were interested in a college basketball team. Yeah. Your rights. Do we we had this note today dukes go to one hundred and eighteen points in that debut? There were twenty NBA teams in action last night and they play eight minutes longer. None of them got one hundred. Yeah. Utah Utah was a crisis. They got one hundred seven Stu, and by the way, they did it against Kentucky, by the way. Kentucky. Jank John Calipari was sitting there with his laws look on his face. And I can't believe that coach K is now doing what I've been doing for years because coach guys going to do it better than I've been doing the thirty four point loss for Calipari. His worst ever as a college or NBA coach going to college football the first two weeks of the rankings. We have pretty much pick who they were going to be where do you see the possibility of a shakeup happening going in the next few weeks? Well, Mike, this is interesting. Right. And I have a question for you guys are related to college football. But this is interesting. So let's say Georgia beats Alabama in the SEC championship game. There's no scenario which Alabama is not getting it. But what happens there? So does Michigan get bounced out? Once Notre Dame get bounced out, Mike, I would ask you this because they put this committee together to have some sort of vision. Where does this not the four undefeated teams make it to the final four, Mike? Michigan played Notre Dame right now the debt are they neutral field who do you think would win that game? Who was the better to there is no way. Saying michigan. Everybody's saying Michigan would blow out Notre Dame Michigan has gotten better. So is Notre Dame? You realize Notre Dame did since that first game. They have a quarterback who leads the nation in completion percentage. Okay. So yeah, he's heard he's going to miss this game. We'll be back next week. So to say that all of a sudden Michigan with blowout. Notre Dame to me is ridiculous has Michigan gotten better. Absolutely. They've gotten better. But you asked me I've already said if Georgia beats Alabama they're both in Clemson wins out there in and if Notre Dame wins out there in and Michigan is going to get left out. Now, Paul finebaum went the other way. He thinks Michigan may get in over. Notre an undefeated Notre Dame team. I don't think that would happen. But then again, I'm not one of the thirteen that are that are picking that are deciding this.
Dez Bryant reportedly signing with Saints after getting cut by Cowboys in April
"Girly various high powered offense there in threes. Because too I think you can take away defensively when there's a third one that you can't account for now you're starting to pick and choose if. Can be that third piece for drew Brees. I think it makes them much better because you can account a lot of attention to a Michael Thomas Anna chimera coming out of the backfield. So to have something else is very valuable and refreshing state of mind. This has got to be Dez. They're looking for Thomas still looking for Kamera. They're not looking for me right now. All I gotta do is come in. And I got to be productive on a handful of plays. It's very refreshing. If you're Dez Bryant who considered himself. I mean, I'm the best here. You got to throw it to me that mentality has to change now. Well, it does. But it can also surprise to the upside, you know, he's not being called on to be that number one guy to do the most extraordinary thing. So you know, what all-systems-go whatever he does contribute. And again the saints does actually put up a career high two hundred and twenty four receiving yards, by the way and two touchdowns. The last time he was on the field with the saints. Of course that was as the opposition back in two thousand twelve savior accept that role.
"dez bryant" Discussed on WEEI
"Actually going to be four, but he's got a place to go. And he's got a place to call employment Dez Bryant has agreed to a one year contract. And really is it a one year contract is really a half year contract. I guess with the New Orleans Saints and ironically enough end of this month, November twenty nine th the saints will be on the road at you. Guessed it big d- Dallas Dez Bryant an opportunity to get comfortable in the saints offense with drew Brees. Just in time to go face his old team on the road in Dallas to show them what they may. Or may not be missing. So I thought about this, and I've sat here many times. And I've told you over the last couple of years that drew that Dez Bryant is done. That Dez Bryant obviously is not the same receiver. He wants was when he was a legitimate number one target when he was a legitimate star. He was a legitimate Pro Bowl caliber wide out with the Dallas Cowboys. He was very good player for a while. But over the course of the last three years Dez Bryant productivity has waned significantly. He has lost the ability to separate he's gone to be an old twenty nine. Turn down an opportunity for a multi year deal with the ravens earlier this off season. He had visited the Cleveland Browns that was highlighted on hard knocks. They talked they sat down, and apparently they couldn't agree or from what we understand as Bryant decided. He didn't want to go to a team like Cleveland that was gonna win anything. Right. Okay. Fine. And at that point, you think beggars can't be choosers. Well, I guess waiting around has worked out maybe not financially because we don't know exactly what the Browns would've offered we may have a slight ideas to what the Baltimore Ravens were offering in a long term deal. And we don't know what the New Orleans Saints are going to pay for eight games, or so, but the one thing for Dez Bryant that makes sense with this move is this it's a great opportunity. He's not going to be the number one guy. Right. We know that that that's obvious number one guy. There is Michael Thomas is a legit star. Michael Thomas is a start. He is fourth in the NFL right now in receiving yards with eight hundred and eighty coming off over two hundred yards receiving in his last game. He's great. He is every year since coming into Ohio State a few years back. He's gone over one thousand yards this year. He's gonna catch one hundred forty passes for eighteen hundred yards and a bunch of touchdowns, and it's going to be great. And as good as the New Orleans. Saints have been seven and won first place in the NFC, south handing the LA Rams their first loss of the season, which they did this past Sunday and just a real thrilling game fun game. The one thing that's lacking on this team is diversity at wide receiver outside a Michael Thomas. There is not a single wide receiver with more than twelve catches Alvin kamera's got fifty one catches. I mean, Alvin Kamara is on pace for over one hundred receptions out of the backfield. Right. That's kind of ridiculous. Benjamin Watson the ageless wonder at tight end. All thirty seven years old Benjamin Watson is a tight. And he's got twenty six catches you go from Michael Thomas is seventy receptions at the white out position. And you have to then go down a trade one. Smith a third round pick this year out of central Florida and Ted Ginn junior both of them with twelve catches. Then you have Cameron Meredith who's been a huge disappointment since he came over Cameron Meredith. Has nine catches. So the fact is they need a bit more in terms of weapons at the wide receiver position. So why not bring in Dez Bryant see what he has for Dez Bryant sake. He's going into a great situation. In fact, he's now going to be teaming up with the most accurate passer in NFL history. Drew Brees for his career is at sixty seven point two percent. Completion percentage. That's number one in the history of the NFL to be fair. The old school quarterbacks were throwing it down the field. A heck of a lot more. They weren't thinking in Dunkin. There was a heck of a lot more opportunity to not throw completions. You look at the list today. Number two is Kirk cousins number three's Chad Pennington. So obviously, you get the draft. But drew Brees this year. Okay. This year. Drew Brees is averaging a ridiculous. And it would be an NFL record. Seventy six point three percent. Completion percentage. The last time drew Brees was under seventy percent in the season was two thousand and fifteen. My point is this Dez Bryant doesn't get much separation because he's lost a step Dez Bryant isn't the strongest wide receiver out there. He's not going to out muscle. A guy for the ball the way that Brandon Marshall and his prime could or Julio Jones could he's not going to jump out of a gym today. Like other top receivers like de'andre Hopkins Dez Bryant is kind of limited these days, even at the ripe old age of twenty nine. So if there's gonna be a quarterback in the NFL today, they could still find a way to potentially get Dez Bryant the football. His name isn't going to be Dak Prescott. Because that Prescott really not that good there. I said it. He's just really not that good. I'm not going to sit here and overrate Dak Prescott the way that many of you do I see the reality a deck Prescott. He's not a very accurate passer is not that great. Now, drew Brees is drew Brees is an all time. Great right greatest quarterbacks in the history of football. Drew Brees is on pace for a ridiculous thirty six touchdowns in two hundred this year, take that Nick foles with is twenty seven to in that year chip Kelly. So if anybody could potentially get something out of Dez Bryant, guess what it's going to be drew Brees because he can actually thread the needle to get the ball to Dez Bryant. But think about this from Dez Bryant part Dez Bryant probably feels he has another six years to go right receivers like luck. Larry FitzGerald, what thirty six thirty seven playing at a pretty decent level still Dez Bryant still probably thinks he can collect an NFL paycheck for six or seven years. So he can collect an NFL paycheck for six or seven years. He has to show something in the remaining eight games this year two where teams are going to want to sign him in the off season and give him more than one year contracts lasting Dez Bryant needs is to become a wide receiver who goes year to year from team to team, and before you know, what he's going to be thirty four years old having worn six jerseys. I don't think that's what he wants. And he's going to be playing for two three four million bucks a year. No Dez Bryant wants to -ccomplish something in these remaining eight games and get himself a half decent long term contract. Totally understand that. So there's a motivational aspect for Dez Bryant. He's going to be motivated because Dez Bryant wants to keep playing professional football. And then of course, the motivational factor of November twenty ninth at Dallas. He's gonna want to go out there. And that is a November twenty ninth will be a Thursday night game. He's gonna wanna go out there and show the Cowboys what they're missing, right? He's to want to go out there and show Prescott that if he had an accurate quarterback. He still would be putting up big numbers. Dez Bryant got a lot to play for here. I've read people say, well, you know, what does Brian and do for New Orleans C really gonna help desk. Brian going to go in there make an impact. Or is he going to go in there and have his fiery personality? Be a problem for a part time player is he going to be a guy that can accomplish something why not give them the chance. I have no problem with New Orleans given the chance here's the bottom line. I think Dez Bryant can do something. I don't think Dez Bryant is going to be a number one. I'm not naive. I'm not dumb. But I do think Dez Bryant can be a productive enough receiver for the remaining eight games. Because of the fact he's at a great situation in New Orleans where they definitely need a number two. He's playing with the most accurate passer in NFL history. Drew Brees and he's motivated because he wants to keep working pass this year. I do actually believe that Dez Bryant if he figures things out and realizes what his newfound role is is an NFL wideout, and what that role. All is clearly not a number one. I do think as Brian can be productive. I think Dez Bryant can give you games of six catches for seventy three yards and a touchdown. He's not going to give you the eleven catches one hundred and forty yards in two touchdowns. Like he used to do in his prime. That's just not there anymore. It's not the same type of player. That's Michael Thomas. Those the numbers reserved for greatness like him. But if does Brian is comfortable with being a number two option takes over that role likes the role embraces that role understands that if you can be successful in that role. It opens up his NFL future for a while. I think Dez Bryant can help this team. They are a pass happy team. We know they're a pass happy team. They've always been a pass happy team. They've run the football bit more this year than they usually do especially in the Sean Payton era, but that changed really last year with the arrival of Alvin Kamara adding him next to Mark Ingram, but they still are a pass happy team and for Dez Bryant, I think there is that opportunity for him now to go out there and be a productive player and show the NFL daddy, in fact is not done at twenty nine. I'm not saying he tilts the balance of the saints truly being the best team in the NFL because they bring in desk. Brian all I'm saying is Dez Bryant does to a point make the New Orleans Saints better. I do believe that lady on bell. Does he make? The Steelers better. And the fact is he is now officially in. Pittsburgh. What does that mean can actually show up and play with the Steelers want him there? The latest on. Bell the expectations of if he's gonna play or not. And why exactly is he in Pittsburgh, lots of questions we'll answer next going deep. Dan schwartzman. NBC sports radio. Am the NBC sports radio mobile app. Hey, listen, embassy sports radio.

"dez bryant" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"We had breaking news right before our show a couple of hours ago when it started Dez Bryant to the New Orleans Saints. And I think we both feel like it's something it's not the it's not everything, but he can play still he should have been the league. But I think, you know, everybody's a little hesitant with a high maintenance players, especially when you have, you know, the young bad teams don't want Dez because everybody's just trying to win games, and he'd be disruptive in the good teams are worried about a guy like Dez because they don't want to upset all their mo- jail. But New England brought in Josh Gordon, and I watched him Sunday, and it's working, and I think the saints looked at that game with New England and Brady Josh Gordon thought, you know, what does could be a good enough to make plays. And I do think Dez is not going to happen in a week the saints bingles this Sunday, by the way, keep your eye on upset there. I don't think he's gonna make a big splash this Sunday. But I think Dez Bryant it will be a little like, Josh, Gordon. Maybe not quite as good, but a powerful strong receiver that gives them an occasional player to down the stretch in the last six weeks, and I gotta tell ya. The NFC is wide open. I mean, it is what they're eleven teams still vying for six pots and the New Orleans Saints told him anything wrapped up Carolina's on their tail in Atlanta, just went out and got somebody told me Atlanta went out and got somebody this morning. They went out and got a Bruce Irvin from the raiders. So they went out and got a pass rusher this morning. So all of these teams, you know, most of the NFL outside about five New York Giants, you know, Cleveland Brown messes New York Jets. They're all in it. So I like to move saints Bengals this Ananth FOX by the way Cowboys host the saints week thirteen on Thursday night football. So that'll be fun Dez Bryant Beal dial, Dan, maybe not this week. But it'll be dialed in for that game. Tone up in fifteen minutes. TJ Hirschman zodda his thoughts on desk. Bryant to the New Orleans. Saints will Troy Aikman. The all time cowboy great when he talks especially in Dallas. And he talks about the Cowboys and Jerry Jones people listen. And after that sluggish performance in loss. I'm gonna night football. The titans. Just Aikman came out. Criticizing the Cowboys. And just listened to the word he uses here. I talked to people I talked to people who've been inside the building and have a pretty good understanding of of how things are run in a lot of ways there's a lot of dysfunction, and and that has to change if this team is going to be able to compete on a consistent basis. Like the teams that you look to around the league that seemingly are in the hunt each and every year..

"RPM? Breaking news today that Dez Bryant has signed with the New Orleans Saints. I like the move. I think we're seeing it because Josh Gordon has been a nice little fit for the New England Patriots a guy that's got some maintenance. But Josh can play Dez can still play. I I've been saying this all year, he's not a number one receiver on a bad team. He's a two on a good team. He's a three and on the saints. He'll be there third-best receiver. He's not as good as reliable as Ben Watson. He's not Michael Thomas. They have a big time running game. But you know, Dallas has excuse me. The saints have a great offensive line. I will I'll make the argument this morning. I think it's the best offensive line. Currently in football one. Is that mean does can go deep. Michael Thomas can go deep when you. That's why the the Rams Brandin cooks that that Rams oh line allows Jared Goff, like four seconds. Not three Dez Bryant can run the. Twentyfive plus routes. I think he's a good player at eight hundred yards the last time he played and that was with Dak with drew Brees. Can you come in? And can he make you know? I I'm not gonna put any numbers on it. Can you make a couple of plays a game? Now, I think he can I I don't think he will this weekend. But condense Bryant come in and make a couple of plays a game. Yeah. And that's what you're going to need extra to beat the eagles to beat the Rams that to beat Carolina you're going to couple of plays. So we saw golden Tate. Go to the eagles. Just a couple of plays. And Dante Fowler went to the Rams just give us the Dante Fowler had one big shot the day. Just give us a play. Just give us a little something. We're not going to build our offense around yet. So I liked dance to the saints. Great coach great foundation. Mickey Loomis real GM stability, you're gonna great offense. We just want just just a little more fettuccine on the salads little sprinkled sell sprinkled on there. Well, like, I think it'd be fun. By the way, Cowboys host the saints week thirteen Thursday night football. Do we got that game? We got that game. We got tomorrow we got Carolina Panthers at the Steelers. I got Cam at Big Ben tomorrow and a couple of weeks. I get Dez and the saints against the Cowboys. That does day night football bosses. I'm glad they got on that. God bless we got on that and paid a bunch of money for that. I like that tomorrow is great by the way Steelers hosting Cam. So college football playoff last night. I'm driving in this morning. And as watching some politics last night. So I missed the live version of this. And then I went online and stuff. Alabama's one Clemson two Notre Dame three Michigan four in Georgia in Oklahoma real close every you know, what I keep hearing. I drove into work this morning who's going to be number four, Michigan, George Oklahoma. Who's you'd be number four. Who cares? That means you play Alabama and get beat by thirty..

"Well, that's the news. And thanks for stopping by heard. Again, my buddy, Nick writes opinion on Dez Bryant Kaz Dez is a little flaky for me. But my theory is I watched that game Sunday. And I think drew Brees and Sean Payton beat the Rams went home. You know, they went out and got some great food in New Orleans and they sat down, and they watch Gordon and Brady and they called each other and with Dez Bryant on the market, Nick right via the cower global satellite network in New York City is joining us. That's kind of my takeaway on it. I don't think that's any better today than he was three months ago. What's your takeaway on it? I'm surprised by this. I think this is great for Dez Bryant. I'm not sure if it's great for the saints. I understand why the saints would do it. They've got an incredibly productive number one receiver but their second receiving threat. This year's a running back. Their third receiving threat is at tight end who's your age, Colin and their fourth receiving threat is a rookie who has twelve catches on the year and trae Quant Smith. So I get why they feel they have the need for a number two receiver and Dez is biggest issue is generating separation pair with the quarterback. Then you don't need any separation because he's so accurate. He's basically handing you the football. But man, this is a big belief in Sean Payton, and their culture 'cause this right now to me is the Super Bowl favourite in the NFC, and you're bringing in something of a live wire. Maybe they not only saw what happened in New England with Josh Gordon, but they saw the team they just played in the Rams who despite. Down just beating them. The Rams brought in a bunch of livewires this off season. And it's worked out brilliantly for them for desert. It's great for the saints. I think it's to be determined to actually great point on the Rams, you know, what Josh Gordon's working if Dez works te'o better. Stay by the phone. He may get a phone call here in the next six months. Slowdown called slowdown thought. Like, okay. So Troy Aikman used to big words yesterday dysfunction and overhaul. I agree with the dysfunction. I don't think the Cowboys need an overhaul. I think they need a coach. What did you make a basement thoughts? All right. So Colin just think of one of the many homes you own across the country God and the Cowboys. They listen they've got a lot of really cool stuff, and they might have a pool table. That's their left tackle Tyron Smith. They've got a really nice theater that Zeke Elliott, they got a pass rusher. That's I assumed the spa or the pool you have outback they got they have two linebackers. They got an all pro guard. They now have a wide receiver. But they don't have a foundation. That's the culture, they they don't have even a ground level. That's the quarterback, and they don't have a coach. So they have everything you need except for the most important things you need a coach a quarterback and a culture. They're like the bizarro Seattle Seahawks. The Seattle Seahawks have those three things in that it they're four and four the Cowboys have everything else. But not those three things they're three and five. I think that's what Troy was getting that. Yeah. I mean, listen. Here's the thing with Jason Garrett. And I see this with Mike McCarthy Green Bay. I don't think they're bad coaches. But sometimes the world changes, and oh Facebook I o on Instagram, and if you don't embrace it you look old now dated. I look at Jason Garrett. He could be a coach somewhere. But I gotta be honest. I watched Dallas offense. And I see Green Bay's offense. I don't see a lot of motion. I don't see a lot of clever. That's kind of my take away. Is that what you see I? Well. Yeah. I mean, I think both of these coaches, I think Mike McCarthy has achieved the minimum level any competent coach would achieve with Aaron Rodgers. I believe that. I think that we assay you win a Super Bowl. You're an all time. Great coach. I don't believe that to be the case would Jason Garrett. I you say that if he you know, he could coach a lot of places if he were to get fired..
Why Dez Bryant and the Saints are a good fit
"Heard the news about Dez working out with it would with scheduled to work out with the New Orleans Saints. How how good of a fit? Do you think that would be for him and for the saints? I think that he'll have fresh lakes if they signed him for the second half of the season. Whereas she's not the same player. He was four years ago with a cowboy sign of that big contract playing with drew Brees is kind of like playing with Tom Brady that they can make anybody look, really good. And they take advantage of this strength. I think they they can really use somebody opposite. Michael Thomas is developed into one of the two or three receivers. No, the and I think is a short-term marriage. I think that would be great and he's walking into a situation where he's going to be motivated because the typhoon best record in the NFC. I think that'd be a really good sunny

Sources believed the Browns will trade him if they can before releasing him by the Monday, they didn't nnounced that. They would let him go here. Schefter on more on what happened and how the Browns move forward. The latest twisted. Josh Gordon shagong unfolded on Saturday when he showed up to the Brown. Training complex were they strange hamstring that he hurt at a promotional shoot for a commercial. That was a non team sponsored event. He couldn't plan Sunday the Browns ruled them out and then later in the day announced that they would be releasing him on Monday, except that created instant buzz around the league phone calls into the Browns complex about trading for him, multiple leaks. Sources now believe that the Browns essentially are auctioning them off to the highest bidder and have every intent to try to trade him before they release him. And Josh scored looks like he'll be impacting packing somewhere. And it'll be leaving Cleveland as early as Monday, and Chris Mortensen reporting, Gordon broke the team's trust an a statement from GM John Dorsey, you said for the past six years the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh both personally and professionally in one of the best for him. Unfortunately, they've reached the point where they feel. It's best to part ways and move forward.
Dez Bryant trolls Dallas Cowboys on Twitter during, after loss
"Guests. It was trolling his former team all afternoon Dez Bryant. Maybe glad he doesn't have a job right now in the NFL because that would keep him from watching the Cowboys and tweeting about the Cowboys who lost to the Carolina Panthers. They got doubled up sixteen to eight. It's more like a baseball score than it is like a football score. It was definitely a game in which the defense with the Carolina Panthers and the crowd in Charlotte. Played a major role. The only allowed two hundred thirty two yards. Dak Prescott was constantly under duress. He got sacked six times. And on third down the Cowboys were only two of eleven so the offense really struggled. Maybe that's not a huge surprise to you. Right. You've got Leuke clear on the other side. Always in double figures tackles, you've got an offense led by Cam Newton that does a really good job of controlling the ball, especially at home. And Cam was out there flexing his muscles goal from the four. Manhertz standup tied into the right? The fake to McCaffrey. Going to take it in South Carolina league touchdown. Camden Yards away. Oh, short and sweet. Sense on the Carolina Panthers radio
