Dallas Cowboys Roster: Team Needs Defensive Pieces, Dez Bryant Working on It
The Dallas Cowboys already have a talented unit expected to go on a tear in the 2017 NFL season. However, their roster could use players that can help improve the defense. Worry no more since Dez Bryant is trying to lure a veteran defensive piece to come to Dallas.
In a report by NFL.com, it appeared that Bryant joined the recruitment game. Through Twitter, the wide receiver reached out to free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Bryant stated that Revis will love what they are trying to do in the Big D. He added that the 31-year-old's attitude would fit with the Cowboys' culture.
From the looks of it, Bryant might be doing the right thing for Dallas. As of this moment, the Cowboys roster has a good number of cornerbacks. Most of them are youngsters eager to prove that they are worthy of a roster spot. The others have a significant amount of experience in the NFL. Despite this, none of them have reached the level of Revis.
Revis has achieved so much in 10 seasons in the NFL. He is a one-time Super Bowl (XLIX) winner, a seven-time Pro Bowler, and was a four-time member of the First-team All-Pro.
Unfortunately, Revis' performance with the New York Jets in the previous seasons was lackluster. Last season, in 15 games (all starts), he had 53 tackles, one interception, five pass deflections (second-lowest in career), and one stuff. Due to the decline in his game, some believe that he is no longer capable of playing at a high-level in the NFL.
This may prevent Revis from heading to Dallas. There is a big possibility that the Cowboys ignore what Bryant wants to accomplish. They will likely just settle with cornerbacks currently on the roster rather than spending on someone whose game is diminishing.
