Tom Brady is the favorite football player of many Americans, including top athletes. Guess what Dez Bryant said about this…
Dez Bryant is still unsigned. He turned down the Cleveland Browns, and it’s the second AFC North team that he rejected. It’s more than clear that Bryant is trying to stick to the east coast. Foxboro maybe? When one of his fans asked him if he would ever play with the New England Patriots, Bryant said that quarterback Tom Brady is his favorite player.
“Tom Brady has always been my favorite player… real fact,” Bryant said.
Bryant was just 12 when Brady became Pats’ starter. Yes, when Bryant says “always” he really means since forever.
If you take a closer look to the organization, the Patriots are the right team for Bryant. He’s the right sort of team for him. New England is a contender, and that’s what gives Bryant a chance to win a Super Bowl ring. Many veterans have achieved that during their one-year contracts with the Patriots.
Let’s not forget about Brady. He’s an elite quarterback, and honestly, it doesn’t really get more elite than this. Will Bryant be able to post big numbers? Probably. Maybe he will even ink a long-term deal next offseason.
New England has been having serious issues with the receiver position. Brandin Cooks was part of a trade, and Danny Amendola joined the Miami Dolphins. Julian Edelman will sit out the first month of the regular season. Jordan Mattheys and Malcolm Mitchell were released due to injuries. Eric Decker hasn’t provided more than a disappointment. Chris Hogan may be the only hope for the team, but he missed seven games last season.
Bryant’s case is pretty similar to the one of Randy Moss in 2007. He is 29, was injured and experienced poor quarterback play on the previous team.
Is there any chance that Bryant signs a contract with the Patriots?
