"I think Dez is certainly going to have plenty of opportunities", Witten said.

Former Dallas Cowboys tight end and new ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Jason Witten said Monday he believes former teammate Dez Bryant will sign with the Green Bay Packers. This move was unexpected with Randall Cobb thought to be the odd man out in Green Bay, but regardless of the move the team still has one of the better receiving corps in the National Football League and could take that a step further with the addition of former Dallas Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there is "nothing imminent" between the Packers and free agent Dez Bryant, and that a signing is unlikely.

Witten pointed out that Bryant has just about every quality that Rodgers would love in a receiver. Aaron Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well.

New Global Plan Aims to Ban Harmful Trans Fats by 2023
The plan largely targets South Asian, Middle Eastern, and North African countries, where use of trans fats is still pretty high . But, the World Health Organization said, healthier alternatives can be used without affecting the taste or the cost of food.


A quarterback like Aaron Rodgers would seemingly be able to get the best out of Bryant, but coach Mike McCarthy has long talked about the dynamic in the locker room as one of the most important aspects to player acquisition. Seemingly asking for too much money, Bryant's market has been ice cold, as he's yet to even make a visit since getting released from the Cowboys on April 13. May.

The Packers were among two other primary teams - the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens - to have expressed early interest in Bryant. "You need somebody that can stretch the field and [be] an X factor, and that's Dez Bryant".

If Bryant was to be signed by a team, now would be the precise time for it to happen. But he's going to partner with a great quarterback and have somebody who he feels like can contend for a championship.

After three-straight 1,000-yard seasons from 2012-14, when Bryant also caught 41 touchdowns, Bryant has struggled over the last three seasons, missing eight games and failing to catch more than 70 passes for 850 yards in all three seasons.
