The Dallas Cowboys are inking a deal with the recently reinstated wide receiver, Martavis Bryant, as reported by Shams Charania from the Athletic.
The 31-year-old Bryant was once a formidable deep threat in football. In 2014, during his rookie season with the Steelers, he excelled, averaging an impressive 21.1 yards per reception and scoring eight touchdowns in just 10 games.
However, his journey took a rocky turn when he faced suspensions in 2015 and 2016 due to NFL substance abuse policy violations.
He made a comeback with the Steelers in 2017 but didn’t perform as remarkably. In 2018, he was traded to the Raiders, where his troubles persisted.
Bryant’s NFL career took another hit with a late 2018 suspension, and since then, he hasn’t returned to the league.
Despite a lackluster stint with the XFL’s Vegas Vipers, the Cowboys have given him a practice squad opportunity, offering a slim chance of recapturing his earlier glory.
