    I do not know what to say about this speculation other than WOW.o_O I do not who the Sportster is , but I guess anything is possible. I think there is about a 0.00002% chance of this happening. I like the last lines of this article where he says, "Having Bryant in a stacked AFC East division would be huge for the Dolphins, and they need a player of his caliber if they're to rebound from a disappointing 2017 campaign. Bryant shouldn't be on the market much longer, and it's up to the Dolphins to make a deal happen.":laugh

    1 Signing: Dez Bryant To Dolphins
    [​IMG]
    Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

    The Dallas Cowboys made a shocking offseason transaction and opted to cut Dez Bryant, who had eight productive seasons with America's Team. But given his age (30 in the winter), declining production and recent injury history, the cap-strapped Cowboys decided it was time to bid farewell. Surprisingly, Bryant has yet to find a new home. Maybe he's not as fast and athletic as he used to be, but his incredible size and hands make Bryant a game-changer on any day of the week.

    When it comes to looking at new teams, the Miami Dolphins look like the best fit for Bryant. They need a new wide receiver after trading Jarvis Landry to Cleveland in the offseason. Thus far, Danny Amendola is the only impact free agent they've added, and the returning Ryan Tannehill needs plenty of support around him. The Dolphins should look at giving Bryant a rather cheap one or two-year deal, with bonus incentives. Having Bryant in a stacked AFC East division would be huge for the Dolphins, and they need a player of his caliber if they're to rebound from a disappointing 2017 campaign. Bryant shouldn't be on the market much longer, and it's up to the Dolphins to make a deal happen.

    He wants too much money. At leat that is I had heard from a Cowboys buddy of my why they cut him. He wouldn't take a pay cut.

    No one is making you read his threads.

    To be fair, this is the second time I've seen an article by this "sportster" posted here, and both articles were completely retarded.

    I hate his attitude, but more importantly his declining skills and contract demands tell me to stay away from this guy.

    The problem is he posts actual articles too, which are interesting and have actual information and there’s no way to distinguish between the 2 until you open them.

    If they aren't will to put up with Jarvis and Ajayi then why in the world would they bring in Dez?

    Also, what skillsets does Dez bring that we're in desperate need of to risk team chemistry going forward?

    I read an analysis apparently by the Cowboys themselves that he no longer had the explosiveness off the line nor the elevation to snare those jump balls that made him so effective in his prime. He turned down a legit Ravens offer, thinking he'll get more, but essentially I'd rather have Parker or Stills as my #s 1 and 2 receivers. Plus he's been a clubhouse cancer in the past. So thanks but no thanks.

    Now if this relatively unknown blogger is being paid by his agent to perpetuate this kind of crap, hoping to create a market where none obviously exists, it wouldn't be the first time an agent tried manipulating teams to the benefit of his client,.

    2018, we’re still using this term to describe poor quality?

    Funny thing, the author doesn't even acknowledge Devante Parker in his blurb. And why should he? Parker has been non existent since he came to us. Bryant can still do (Probably) what we wanted Parker to do, go up and grab the ball out of the air. Neither needs to be a great route runner or burner. Parker has shown nothing, and Bryant may still be able to deliver on jump balls.
    Now, this will never happen because of money and locker room culture consistency, but Parker needs to be challenged at this spot. Someone, Bryant or other needs to come in and try to take Parker's job away.
    If Gase is who he says he is, then the best man should be our no.1 receiver, not the one who was picked highest in the draft. Move on or deliver Devante. The time is now in 2018.

    BTW, last thing. If Parker is serious about his craft then he needs to get with Amendola now and shadow him throughout TC.

    I disagree, my friend....Bryant is a shell of his former self...we are building team chemistry with a touch of speed added...Bryant contributes nothing to either of those traits IMO...he MAY be a good possession receiver that is used in (mainly) red zone opportunities...for a contender that could use him as needed...

    No thanks to relying on a player with declining skills to take away opportunities from Amendola, Wilson, Grant ....I would rather go with the younger, faster guys...I know Amendola is older but his attitude vs. Bryant?...nope

    Borderline delusional to say this. At this point Carroo has shown no ability to challenge any receiver on this roster. He is as good as cut this year.

    I guess I should've said Caroo's (tail) SHOULD HAVE BEEN the one trying to push him. I know he hasn't shown anything, you know he hasn't, pretty much everyone knows he hasn't, but with what the team invested in him, he should've at least been trying to bust through the door. its not his fault he was drafted to a team already deep at WR, that was stupid on our part. And I think Carroo could slide thru one more year DVP, Stills, Amend, Wilson, Grant, Caroo, Ford can be stashed on PS one more season

    Limited route tree and that Lisfranc fracture was enough to limit his effectiveness. Sad because he was a hell of player when healthy. It's a pass because of that

    All those guys you mention should have been working to make the top, but it remains what it is. On Caroo, he has had ample opportunities to be no.1, and I'm glad he's not cut yet for these reasons. One is because we have a set of new coaches here this year. Maybe one can get Caroo what he's missing in teaching. Another reason, and this goes for all of them as well, is the presence of Amendola. If Danny can show these guys proper preparation and skill development, maybe there's a chance. Lastly, if the Parkers and Caroos can't respond favorably this year, we need to go get an Alpha no.1. Either draft or trade, but it needs to happen.

    Wouldn't that be better used to describe poor quality or something that makes no sense... than to describe a human being who's different in some sort of way? I don't mind some of these PC principal terms being frowned upon when still being used today, but this one is one where I think it's a bit re-ummmwellyeah to still want it to refer to a person vs being used in casual conversation to describe something weird.

    I know its a lot to ask of a rookie, but maybe an alpha TE makes the alpha wr not as important ;) <cough> Gesicki better be this <cough>

    I would rather keep our WR's and TE's as I think we have a very good mix right now. I believe the ball will be spread around a lot more rather than through just one player.

    I guess blog writer missed the Albert Wilson signing and the roster "cleansing" Miami has been trying to accomplish this offseason. Where on earth would Bryant fit into this deep receiving corps anyways? His skills have eroded badly and me thinks that doesn't get better as you age.

    Watching All or Nothing on the Cowboys, it sure seems like no one around him really likes him that much. He's always talking and you can see people just walk away from him. Clearly lost a step and has trouble getting separation. Coaches talked about it.

    yes he may have lost step but he is still better than every wide receiver on dolphins team. the only problem I see with dez. might be with coaches.. for one yr deal I would bring him in...you can get 2 to 3 good yr out of dez.

    I'd hope that this would never happen. We wanted to change the culture. Bringing him in would not be changing that culture. On top of that he's not even that good anymore plus he'll want to much money.

    Ehh... I don't know about that. Parker has had some great plays for us where he's gone up and highpointed the ball. That's not his issue at all. And besides... Gesicki has every bit of the skill set and ability to come down with those plays as Parker or bryant anyway.

    And Andy as bad as this sounds. I think the Wilson signing is a little under the radar. I was excited about it, watching his highlights. but the sad truth is, if you scroll up or read where I talked about Caroo making team and listed the 6 WR's I thought would make it, I initially typed Wright and then went back and edited it to Wilson. Me and one of my buds were having a deep talk about the school shooting so ill blame my mind not being in place, but honestly I couldn't even remember his last name and ive been a fan for 35 years

    My comment was not snarky. Sorry if you took it that way. My thought was a positive one.

    As you are a long time member and I just thought you would want to help support the site. No big deal if you choose not to.
