Jason Witten: Packers a 'great spot' for Dez Bryant

USA TODAY's For the Win looked into who that corner might have been, and it looks like it was former LSU CB Morris Claiborne.

After an intense, and at times very vocal rivalry, it was unexpected to see Jenkins attempt to lure Bryant to the Giants. We may never know, but Rob Ryan seems to think so.

The Packers were among two other primary teams - the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens - to have expressed early interest in Bryant. With Geronimo Allison, a former undrafted free agent set to be the Packers boundary receiver opposite Davante Adams, it should be somewhat obvious Bryant is better.

When Jason Witten predicted his former teammate would end up in Green Bay catching passes from the two-time MVP, defensive coordinators in the NFC must have had their hearts stop for a brief moment. 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.

Najib has said the deposit was a donation by an unnamed member of the Saudi royal family which had been largely returned. The country will invite foreign participation in large infrastructure projects "when we don't have expertise", he said.

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.

" ... (Packers quarterback) Aaron Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well and Dez has great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants". "Because I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League". The Packers went away from their model player last offseason when they signed the polarizing Martellus Bennett, and no one can soon forget how badly that ended. According to Witten, the Packers check all of the boxes for Bryant, who is seeking a one-year deal. Bryant has regressed since signing a five-year extension with the Cowboys before the 2015 season, failing to reach the 1,000-yard mark and double-digit touchdowns in the past three seasons.

"Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities".
