We’re always looking for ideas for the patent-pending PFT Live draft. On Wednesday, Browns receiver Jarvis Landry handed us one.
John Lynch, the 49ers G.M., did a lot of Dez Bryant’s games at his peak when Lynch was a broadcaster, Pelissero said Tuesday, via 247 Sports. There’s respect there, but my understanding is the 49ers love their receiving group as it is … Unlikely they’re going down the Dez Bryant road anytime soon.
Bryant can also scratch the Seahawks off the list, as former Giants receiver Brandon Marshall inked a one-year deal with the Seahawks earlier this week.
As for his former employer, the Cowboys remain Bryant’s biggest fans even though they released him and shut the door on a reunion.
His departure leaves the Cowboys without a true No. 1 receiver.
That suits quarterback Dak Prescott just fine.
I don’t know if any team in the league necessarily needs a No. 1 receiver, Prescott said. It’s about getting the ball out, spreading the ball around, keeping the defense on its toes.
The Cowboys’ projected top-five receivers have one 1,000-yard season among them. Allen Hurns, Deonte Thompson, Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams and third-round pick Michael Gallup have combined for 750 receptions for 9,659 yards and 65 touchdowns.
Duvernay-Tardif plans to begin his medical career after his playing days are over. He signed a $41.25 million, five-year contract to remain with the Chiefs last offseason.
Once we get across that barrier and kind of on the same communication lines, I think we’ll be fine, Morgan said. It’s a different scheme from what LeBeau ran here, but you know it’s football at the end of the day. So you’ve just got to get the concepts, get the philosophy and understand what we’re trying to accomplish on the field.
Byard echoed Morgan’s comments.
