Dez Bryant has been looking for work for nearly two months. One veteran pass catcher has a possible answer.
Titans tight end Delanie Walker would be happy to have Bryant in Tennessee.
[W]e’ve got some good, premier receivers on our team, Corey Davis, Rishard Matthews, Walker said Saturday at Michael Crabtree’s youth football camp in Dallas, via the Dallas Morning News. It’s another element if they was to bring him to the team. If he can help us out, gladly I would welcome him with open arms.
Regardless, with offseason programs nearly over, Bryant will face a real challenge to learn an offense and earn playing time if/when he signs. And the later he agrees to terms into training camp, the harder it will be.
Free-agent running back Chris Johnson’s chances of getting another NFL gig have potentially gotten a little slimmer.
The man once known as CJ2K, who in his prime was regarded as one of the best running backs in the game, faces a misdemeanor battery charge in Florida.
Via WFTS in Tampa, Johnson entered a plea of not guilty through his lawyer on Thursday. He allegedly assaulted a valet at The Lodge, a restaurant on South Howard Avenue in Tampa’s Hyde Park section.
The alleged victim suffered a bloody nose and a cut lip. Parking-lot surveillance cameras captured there incident on video. Johnson was identified by the owner of the club, and the victim separately picked Johnson out of a lineup.
Indeed, 97 percent of Manziel’s throws in college came out of sets with at least three receivers on the field, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. That number dropped to 70 percent over two seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
