Wednesday, the Eagles added Jordan Matthews to the roster for a third time, according to reports that still have not been officially confirmed.
Maybe you heard Dez Bryant’s name floating around out there as another option to bolster the Eagles’ receiving corps, and while Dez has been out of the game since 2017, he’s considering an NFL return, according to him:
I’m not trying to go nowhere and be a starter on a team I want to contribute because I know I will be able too… I’m feeling good… in two weeks I’m going to reach out to teams and see what happens…. let’s go X

Bryant didn’t play during the first half of 2018, then he signed with the Saints on a one-year deal but tore his Achilles tendon two days later. He’s been on the shelf ever since, but has had a full year to get healthy.
He’s 31 years old now, and maybe bringing in a former Cowboy is a huge red flag in general. The Eagles don’t exactly do well when they go this route, unless you were a fan of Miles Austin, DeMarco Murray, Orlando Scandrick, or Chris Boniol. Dez has always been a head case, but maybe some time off has changed that. Who knows?
In his prime, he was a Pro Bowl talent and perennial 1,000 yard receiver, but even in 2017, his last NFL season, he caught 69 passes for 838 yards and 6 touchdowns.
You tell me –
Dez Bryant, yay or nay?
