Dez Bryant is confident that some friendly DMs can pay the cowboys bad blood for years.
According to Stephen Jones, vice president of Dallas Cowboys, son of owner Jerry Jones, the former star recipient contacted him to get the team back for the 2020 season.
"He wrote to me that he would like to come back," Jones told the Fort Worth Star Telegram. “We only have a lot of respect for Dec and what he did here. If we look to the future, we will of course look at all the opportunities and potential players who might be able to help us. "
The cowboys may be able to need broad receivers depending on how things go this off-season: Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, and Tavon Austin are expected to become unrestricted free agents.

After three pro bowl selections and eight seasons with the team, Bryant was released in April 2018, saving the cowboys $ 8.5 million in space.

In response to an interview Stephen Jones gave with Sirius XM NFL radio, Bryant tore up the cowboys and called it "scapegoat s-t." , "
He also ridiculed the cowboys on Twitter after an embarrassing loss to the Panthers in September 2018.
Bryant signed a one-year, $ 1.25 million contract with the New Orleans Saints in November 2018. He suffered an Achilles tendon tear two days later. The Saints were reportedly "open" to bringing Bryant back next season, but he ultimately sat out all year 2019, despite his desire to continue playing.
The 31 year old was Training for a possible return, but accepts that he will no longer be number 1.
"I want to be part of a team that doesn't focus on me." Bryant tweeted on Thursday, "I have no problem not being the main character. I bet I'll do damage."
