The Dallas Cowboys feel like they are an offensive weapon short. After their loss to the Eagles on Sunday, many are questioning whether the team needs another offensive weapon behind CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks. Ahead of week 10, the Cowboys are hosting former Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant.
Veteran WR Martavis Bryant who has been reinstated by Commissioner Roger Goodell, is expected to workout for the Dallas Cowboys tomorrow.
He hasn’t played in the NFL since 2018 when he was with the Oakland Raiders.

Dallas Cowboys Working Out Martavis Bryant
Bryant was reinstated by the NFL over the weekend. The former Steelers receiver was very productive opposite Antonio Brown but due to his violation of the substance abuse policy, got into some trouble with the league. He has spent the last couple of years in other football leagues most notably playing for the Vegas Vipers last season in the XFL. When it was announced he would be reinstated, the report was that many teams were interested and it looks like Dallas is jumping on the opportunity.
The Cowboys Should Do It
I don’t think Bryant is a WR1 anymore but the Cowboys don’t need him to be. The Cowboys need a solid third option behind Lamb and Cooks. I think that this is a role that Bryant can fill. Ultimately, there is very little risk in signing him. He most likely will not cost an arm and a leg and will be on a one-year prove-it deal. If he hits, the Cowboys have another weapon on offense. If not, they haven’t sold the farm to see if this was going to work out.
Will Martavis Bryant end up signing with the Dallas Cowboys? It all depends on how that workout goes and how desperate the Cowboys are feeling.
