The Cowboys organization painted Dez Bryant as a "team cancer," but AB is having none of that.
It didn't take long for a fellow NFLer to come out the woodwork and support embattled free agent Dez Bryant. Pittsburgh Steeler Antonio Brown did so this morning via Twitter. His pitch to Dez was simple yet poignant: "Come play with me, let’s get the chip..........Eat Greedy......Big plates......."
Let me break that down into particles. Antonio Brown is a hotshot wide receiver, arguably the best in the league. While Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger likely wears an ice pack any time he's off the pitch, his play on-the-field is still unquestionably high. So if you factor Big
Ben's shelf life and the emergence of JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Steelers become an embarrassment of riches.
Unfortunately in the modern game, players like running back Le'Veon Bell tend to hold out and cause recession. But if that contract dispute were to work itself out, could Dez Bryant work his way into the rotation? Does it even make sense?
Whether or not the Pittsburgh Steelers can afford to sign Dez Bryant, Antonio Brown can dream big all he wants. Provided Dez signs elsewhere (which is likely), Antonio Brown will have done his part by shining a positive light on the situation pitting Bryant against his former employers, the Dallas Cowboys.
