The Cowboys looked dismal in their loss to the Panthers, struggling on offense in their first game without Bryant and retired tight end Jason Witten. The Patriots, on the other hand, are a team which apparently appeals greatly to Bryant.
Shortly after tweeting that he'll be "pursuing football again shortly", Bryant said he'd prefer to play for a team like the Patriots than going back to the Cowboys. But Bryant went out to dispel any notion that this was a pitch or a plea to the Patriots to sign him. "Washington is cool as well".
Bryant believes numerous Cowboys problems on offense would be solved if he and Bailey had been kept on the roster.
The game ended, fittingly, with the Panthers defense sacking Dallas QB Dak Prescott and forcing a fumble. "I know the team well so it's hard not for me to speak. all I ever cared about was winning".More news: England defender Shaw vows to be 'back soon' after injury

When someone suggested the Cowboys would have beaten the Panthers if they still had Bryant and kicker Dan Bailey, the wide receiver tweeted: "Real fact".
"I love Jerry", Bryant responded.
In one of his final posts of the night, a fan asked Bryant to predict the Cowboys' final record this season.
