Dez Bryant probably knows he won’t end up with the Giants, but the free-agent wide receiver is still holding out hope.
After being released by the Cowboys on Friday, Bryant said he hoped to join another NFC East team and have a chance to exact revenge against Dallas twice per season.
Because the Giants have the sixth-least amount of cap space in the league and already have a solid receiving corps, bringing in Bryant makes little sense, but the 29-year-old is already envisioning what it would be like to come to New York.
“The Giants got a helluva defense, they’re going to pay OBJ [Odell Beckham Jr.], so [he’s] coming back,” Bryant told CBS Sports’ Mike Fisher. “Playing with him, Sterling [Shepard] … the tight end [Evan Engram], [QB Eli] Manning? Crazy. They draft [Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick]? That’d be crazy!”
Bryant broke down his options one by one to Fisher, who wrote he believes the Giants would be Bryant’s No. 1 choice, and that the three-time Pro Bowler is a fan of the city and its fashion.
“You get to wear your nice winter coats on the streets of New York there,” Bryant joked.
Bryant also said the Texans would be a natural fit and allow him to stay in his home state, while he also said he would be interested in joining the Jaguars or Rams.
Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins endorsed Bryant’s vision.
