    I think most of what you say is accurate. I don’t know that his issues were learning the scheme as much as he isn’t a crisp route runner. But at the end of the day you are pretty much echoing what I’m saying. It isn’t a talent deficiency keeping Dez at home, it’s all of the non-talent issues like his inflated sense of worth, issues in the locker room / sidelines, social media, etcetera. If he didn’t have those he would be on a team right now regardless of whether he runs the right routes all of the time. A guy like Rodgers could get a lot of mileage out of Dez as a #2 or #3 option. He’s essentially his own worst enemy.

    The Cowboys are partially responsible.

    Dez had his 1st training camp when Wade was still the HC. There was zero discipline on the team and by then the inmates were running the asylum.

    Garrett brought better discipline but it took a few years to dump the bad apples.

    If Parcells or Jimmy had been the HC, Dez would not have been allowed to get by with all of his nonsense.

    It might have been a bit better if Dez had arrived a few years after Garrett became HC but Garrett's primary method of instilling discipline has been to avoid having problematic players on the roster and instead get college team captains.

    I would love to have seen Dez play for Jimmy...

    Under Jimmy, he would either have been traded away after a couple of years or would have been an All-Time great WR.

    I agree with your overall sentiment. Dez should still be a top flight wideout with a few more elite years. He got by totally on raw talent and never learned the little things that vets usually pick up along the way. Some of that is the organizations fault, no doubt. As such, his athleticism is declining and he hasn’t done anything to offset that. So he’s fallen from a top 3 receiver, to top 10, to top 20, and now would be down to top 50 and falling. He should probably still be a top 15-20 guy wearing a Dallas uniform and helping this team win. Instead, he’s simply no longer worth the trouble.

    Hasn't he burned too many bridges with his mouth? And that's not heat of the moment sideline antics.

    Bryant is like that girl that gets mad and tells everyone you've got a small Johnson, then can't find a date and wants to make love again.

    It may help, it may not/ If he's willing to play for cheap than I say we do it.

    Wish I could like his post again but it seems impossible. Still, it was very well played if I must say so myself.

    Really? Wow.. What a reach.. Who else ya gonna google up? Forget it. Ridiculous comment. Bring back Bob Hayes as well. Point is, Dez wouldn't mind coming back. Dallas needs help at WR. They should've grabbed Gordon, but, didn't.. Why not? They have had worse mental cases on the team.

    Karma happened to him I guess. Hasn't had an interception since 2016. Not that we can brag, but still :)

    The point was, why bring in another receiver that doesn't scare anybody, that's been pretty spare the last few years.?

    If Dallas needs receivers (maybe so) they still don't need a player who sucks (Dez).
