Report: Packers not expected to sign Dez Bryant

Jason Witten thinks Dez Bryant is going to sign with the Packers, but Witten was hired by ESPN to be an analyst, not a reporter.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Packers are not expected to sign Bryant.

The Packers did have some interest in Bryant when he was first released by the Cowboys, according to the report. But after the Packers drafted wide receiver J’Mon Moore in the fourth round, wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the fifth round and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown in the sixth round, that interest waned.

“For me, I use the hell out of my Adidas merch because if everybody has their style — JC’s got his streetwear, Swish has got Supreme — if you had to describe mine in one word, it would be ‘comfort,'” Larry Nance Jr. said, comparing his usual clothing to that of teammates Jordan Clarkson and JR Smith.

After going 1-15 in 2016, Jackson promised to take the plunge if the Browns finished with the same record in 2017. Of course, the Browns notoriously went winless last season.

“It’s going to be a cleansing of the Cleveland Browns,” Jackson said at the NFL Scouting Combine. “That’s what it will be.”

To sweeten the deal, Jackson vowed that, for every franchise employee who joins him in the water, he will donate $100 to his foundation that fights human trafficking.

Jackson’s jump will be held at a private location and be open to employees only.

“At the beginning of the year, we weren’t playing nearly as well as we are now because there was an adjustment period,” said Carlson.

It was a learning experience for both the veterans and the rookies.

A few years ago, the Steelers moved $4 million in wide receiver Antonio Brown’s salary from later contract years to earlier contract years in order to avoid a holdout. It did not change the fundamentals of the contract; it simply altered the pay schedule. Last year, the Patriots added incentives to tight end Rob Gronkowski’s contract and gave him a chance to earn an additional $5.5 million. This year, the Broncos did something similar for cornerback Chris Harris.ravens_006
