The Dez Bryant free agency sweepstakes are off to a bit of a tepid start. Bryant made it clear he’d like a shot at revenge within the division, but visits have not yet begun.
“The Giants,’’ he says, “got a helluva defense, they’re going to pay OBJ (fellow wideout and pal Odell Beckham Jr.), so coming back. Playing with him, Sterling (Shepard) ... the tight end (Evan Engram), (QB Eli) Manning? Crazy. ... They draft (Penn State running back Saquan Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick)? That’d be crazy!’’
The 49ers are down near the bottom, but one thing did jump out at me today. ESPN NFL reporter Josina Anderson tweeted out a query, asking if Dez Bryant and the 49ers are the best fit. It was a simple tweet that seemed to be more about generating discussion than anything else.
That being said, Anderson has plenty of connections. She did not put a “sources say” or anything like that with the tweet, but I’m curious if we should read more into this tweet, or if this is just a random chance for discussion. I don’t expect the 49ers to sign Bryant, but I’ve been surprised before.
