Jason Witten predicts Dez Bryant will sign with the Packers

The release of Bryant certainly created the thought that Williams' job was safe for the 2018 season, but that's far from the case as his production simply hasn't been there.

When asked about Dez Bryant and his future in the NFL, Jason Witten said he believes that he will have some "great opportunities".

When the dallas cowboys waived Dez Bryant, most National Football League fans thought he would pick up with a new team quickly. Witten believes that Bryant will end up with the Green Bay Packers.

Interest from the Packers' side on Bryant has felt lukewarm throughout the process.

If Bryant was to be signed by a team, now would be the precise time for it to happen.

The former Dallas Cowboys tight end predicted former teammate and now unemployed receiver Dez Bryant would sign with the Packers, calling Green Bay a "great fit" for the Cowboys' all-time leader in touchdown catches, but the team isn't expected to pursue him, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The Packers, meanwhile, may want to move forward with their young receiving corps and give them a chance to gel in offseason team activities (OTAs) with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay was forced to release longtime star wide receiver Jordy Nelson this offseason after signing Jimmy Graham and Muhammad Wilkerson.

Witten, who noted he doesn't have any inside info on Green Bay, also pinpointed another possible landing spot for Bryant: the Saints. Behind them is Geronimo Allison, J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. The Pack could definitely use some more pass-catching help for Aaron Rodgers.

That being said, the Packers still have Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as their top two receivers. However, adding him would do nothing to fix the Packers' below-average defense, which ranked 26th in points allowed (384) last season.

The 29-year-old missed time due to injury in both 2015 and 2016 before finishing 2017 with 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns as the No. 1 option for quarterback DakPrescott in the passing game.
