Cowboys followers love Bryant and would like to see him again in Huge D in some capability, however contained in the locker room is likely to be a stretch. No matter his damage standing, Dak Prescott is the chief in that locker room and, extra particularly, the offense. Dez has been hyper-critical of Prescott since he left Dallas. And the 2 didn’t at all times see eye to eye whereas teammates.

Earlier this yr, Dez bought right into a Twitter beef with Dak’s brother (Tad Prescott) over criticism of Prescott and suggesting he ought to attain out to Tony Romo for recommendation following the wildcard loss to San Francisco.

Dez had his time within the Cowboys highlight, which ended abruptly.

The Cowboys have a lot larger fish to fry proper now, like determining if Cooper Rush can deal with QB1 obligations or if they should corral an appropriate substitute for Prescott. So, Bryant returning to the Cowboys locker room for something is wishful pondering.
