Dez Bryant: Playing with Giants, Odell Beckham Jr. would be 'crazy'

The free-agent wide receiver has insisted he doesn't want to leave the NFC East so he can play his former team twice a year.

Dez Bryant is out for blood.

During a Monday interview with 247Sports.com , the free-agent wide receiver discussed potential teams he could sign with following his release from the Cowboys and how wild it would be to play for Dallas' division rival.

"The Giants got a helluva defense," Bryant said. "They're going to pay OBJ [Odell Beckham Jr.], so coming back. Playing with him, Sterling [Shepard] ... the tight end [Evan Engram], [Eli] Manning? Crazy. ... That'd be crazy.

"If it's somewhere else, that's fine. But I'd like to play the Cowboys twice.''

The Cowboys released Bryant on Friday following a meeting with team owner Jerry Jones and the three-time Pro Bowl player has insisted he doesn't want to leave the NFC East.

"Being in the division is a huge possibility, it’s something that I want," Bryant said last week. "It’s personal."

Bryant, 29, spent all eight seasons of his career in Dallas after the Cowboys selected him with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He averaged 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns per season from 2012-14, though injuries have contributed to his diminished performance in recent seasons.
