Dez Bryant tries to lure Darrelle Revis to the Cowboys
Dez Bryant let everyone know his feelings about this year’s Dallas Cowboys roster last month, calling it the best team he’s been on in his seven-year career. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement.
The veteran wideout took to Twitter on Saturday in the hopes of bolstering Dallas’ secondary, which lost Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne, Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox in free agency, reaching out to one of the biggest names still on the market – Darrelle Revis.
Revis was part of the New York Jets’ veteran purging this offseason after his play dropped off significantly last season. The Jets still owe the 31-year-old $6 million unless he signs with another team, but it’s unlikely an organization will pony up that kind of money for the former Pro Bowl cornerback.
Dallas has addressed its needs in the secondary by adding Nolan Carroll and Robert Blanton in free agency and drafting Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis.
