Dez Bryant remains confident in free agency.
After the Cowboys released the wide receiver last April, he signed with the Saints on a one-year deal in November but tore his Achilles tendon in his second practice with the team. He lobbied for himself Thursday on Twitter as he remains unsigned in free agency.
“I will be a steal wherever I go… bet on it,” Bryant wrote.

The 30-year-old receiver didn’t play a game last season after his injury, but he caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six scores in 2017, his last full season. He had 12.1 yards per reception that year, which was a career low.
Selected with the No. 24 overall pick in the first round of the 2010 draft out of Oklahoma State, Bryant spent eight seasons with Dallas where caught 531 passes for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns. The three-time Pro Bowl selection also led the NFL with 16 receiving touchdowns in 2014, though he hasn’t had a 1,000-yard season since then.
