When the Dallas Cowboys released Dez Bryant in mid-April, I didn’t think the polarizing wide receiver would be a free agent for long.
But here we are just over a month until training camps get underway and Bryant is still without a team for the 2018 season.
There’s been some speculation that the Tennessee Titans could be interested in adding the former Pro-Bowl wide receiver (I wrote about why they should at least consider it). But so far there haven’t been any serious rumors linking Bryant to Tennessee.
One of the Titans’ top offensive players, however, would absolutely welcome Bryant to Nashville.
Tight end Delanie Walker, speaking to the Dallas Morning News while in town for Michale Crabtree’s youth football camp, said he would “most definitely” be open to Bryant joining the Titans.
Here are his full comments on Bryant:
Most definitely. Even though I know we’ve got some good premier receivers on our team, Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews. It’s another element if they was to bring him to the team. If he can help us out, gladly I would welcome him with open arms.
Walker said he feels Bryant still has plenty left in the tank and sees some similarities in himself and the former Dallas wide receiver.
“I see him in my type of situation, you know, an older vet guy. And I’m able to play at a high level, so I’m still sure he’s able to play at a high level.”
As we draw closer to the start of training camps, I wouldn’t be completely surprised to see the Titans take a flier on Bryant. After all, the price for Bryant has likely dropped from what it was a couple of months ago.
But with that said, I still think it’s a long shot that Bryant plays in Nashville next season.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson seems happy with the talent his team currently has at the wide receiver position.
However, we also know that Robinson isn’t afraid to make a bold move.
And signing Bryant would certainly qualify as a bold move.
