Dez Bryant is still on someone’s radar.
Taking to Twitter, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown made a public plea to the former Cowboy on Sunday morning, asking him to come to Pittsburgh this season.
“Come play with me @DezBryant let’s get the chip……….Eat Greedy……Big plates…….,” Brown, 30, wrote before Bryant, 29, retweeted the message.
It’s unclear if the Steelers’ interest in Bryant extends beyond Brown.
Following Bryant’s release from the Cowboys in April after eight seasons in Dallas, the outspoken receiver declined a multi-year offer from the Ravens, pitching his services to the Giants in hopes of a one-year, prove-it deal, to no avail. And while the Browns were recently rumored to be in the mix, it appears interest simmered following Bryant’s explosive tweetstorm on Friday.
Bryant had exploded in response to a tweet from SiriusXM NFL radio in which Dallas executive vice president Stephen Jones said both Bryant and now retired tight end Jason Witten had been after the ball from quarterback from Dak Prescott, getting into his ear. Prescott’s performance declined last year, following a stellar rookie campaign.
“Here we go with that scapegoat s–t,” Bryant replied to the message, which has since been deleted. “I changed everything to the game and went the other way … y’all know what the real problem is … don’t put it on me with that bulls–t .. garbage ass play calling .. Everybody lined up in the same spot for 17 weeks.”
Bryant went on to call out former teammates Sean Lee and Travis Frederick.
“He’s not clueless. Jerry [Jones] was the only one who was clueless. [Stuff] was a planned to get me out ask Travis and my brother snake Lee I mean Sean Lee,” he tweeted.
Though Bryant’s performance declined in recent years, perhaps working alongside Brown could ignite a spark. The Steelers receiver had 101 receptions last season for 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns.
