‘Dez can still play football and, I think, play at a high level’
Irvin simply can’t understand why no club has signed Bryant, an eight-year veteran who has been a free agent since the Cowboys released him on April 13, as mandatory minicamps throughout the NFL come to an end.
“Dez can still play football and, I think, play at a high level,” Irvin told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on Late Hits. “Dez certainly is in an offense in Dallas that asks him to do certain things and we get used to seeing him do (those) certain things.

‘I know Dez wants a one-year deal and be able to prove himself next year’
“But I don’t know where that will be. I’m surprised that more people haven’t been trying to get Dez on their football team. And I know Dez wants a one-year deal and be able to prove himself next year, but I am surprised it’s gone on this long.”
