When the Dallas Cowboys waived Dez Bryant, the wide receiver was angry. I think that's a great spot for him. However, not long after Witten's opinion surfaced, the potential pairing was downplayed with the Packers reportedly not expected to sign Bryant, via Pro Football Talk.
"I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers", Witten said. The deadline for teams to be docked compensatory picks for next year's draft was last Tuesday, which opens the door for any veteran still on the market searching for a new team.
Green Bay is not expected to sign Dez Bryant at this point in time. Witten said that Bryant can still play at a high quality and that he would be best with a quarterback like Aaron Rodgers, a man who can put the ball wherever he wants it, similar to Tony Romo before.
Additionally, receiver-turned running back Ty Montgomery is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield and Rodgers even has another dynamic TE in Lance Kendricks to line up in multiple tight-end sets.More news: Last-gasp Jesus goal takes City to 100 points

The Packers have already made huge changes in the offseason so far, with the departure of fan favorite Jordy Nelson and the addition of Jimmy Graham. "I look for him to go there, and really help them take the next step and get back on a playoff run".
That being said, the Packers still have Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as their top two receivers.
When wide receiver Dez Bryant was released by the Cowboys before the draft, one logical landing spot seemed like the Green Bay Packers.
The 29-year-old missed time due to injury in both 2015 and 2016 before finishing 2017 with 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns as the No. 1 option for quarterback DakPrescott in the passing game. However, adding him would do nothing to fix the Packers' below-average defense, which ranked 26th in points allowed (384) last season.
