Since Dez Bryant's behavior has been a problem for the Dallas Cowboys, this could ultimately push the team to trade him away. One possible landing spot for Bryant could be the New England Patriots.
Bryant has been with the Cowboys since 2010 and for a while now, his behavior is starting to become an issue for the team. Just this season, after suffering an injury, Bryant intentionally skipped his medical examination because he was afraid to hear about the results. Then, last week, it was reported that he's in danger of missing the upcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles after bye week after he injured his hand while making soup.
Shannon Sharpe of Undisputed recent pointed out that Bryant's carelessness and negative behavior could affect the attitude of his teammates, many of whom are younger than him. If Dallas wants to prevent this from happening, then the franchise should make a move to part ways with him.
"I wanna get rid of Dez for one reason: I want his negative influence out of the locker room," Sharpe said. "This is a very, very young football team, and the two stars on offense do not need to have that guy in their presence. I'm trying to remove him at all costs."
One possible landing spot for Bryant could be the Patriots. Trading him to the New England franchise will not only benefit the Patriots but it will also be good for Bryant's career.
For one, the team is currently led by quarterback Tom Brady, a veteran athlete who has a lot of experience dealing with various players under his belt. Under his leadership, Brady has total control of his teammates and could even help Bryant get on the right path.
In addition, the New England franchise is operating under a stale front office that has been known for transforming formerly troubled receivers such as Chad Johnson and Randy Moss.
"Randy Moss at the time he was acquired by New England, was the poster child of dysfunction in the NFL," Colin Cowherd of Undisputed said. "New England went, rolled the dice, fourth-round pick, got him and made offensive history."
