Dez Bryant thinks he’ll make his 2018 debut ‘a little bit later in the year’
There has been plenty of speculation regarding the future of free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant going into the 2018 NFL season. He has seemingly given an indication of when he plans on returning.
The fact that a wideout of Bryant’s caliber is still left on the market is undoubtedly surprising. However, his response to a post on Twitter indicates that he still has some things to hammer out before coming back:
I can I just have to take care of me first….gave to much love and not received at least half back…I will play ball this year just might be a lil bit later in the year.. we will see https://t.co/9FVMcgX4K1

While his post gives little insight about what he is dealing with, it is safe to assume it may have to do with the Dallas Cowboys. Bryant spent his prime years in Dallas and became a household name. Unfortunately, his struggles over the last few years ultimately led to his unceremonious departure.
Bryant has not been shy about expressing his disdain over the ways things ended with the Cowboys’ organization. He has used social media as a venting tool on multiple occasions such as this one. While it has given fans some insight into his thought process, it has not done him any favors in terms of finding a new home.
Of course, that is not to say there is no interest from around the league. Bryant has been linked to multiple teams throughout the offseason, with the most recent example being the Cleveland Browns. He even went to pay them a visit but ultimately left without a deal.
There are rumors about some potential mutual interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars given the season-ending injury to Marqise Lee, however, they have not gained much steam. That said, Bryant seems to be content with taking his time to sign with another team.
