Dez Bryant seemed to be all smiles for a guy who was just cut by a team who he's played for since he entered the league eight years ago. The Cowboys announced that the relationship between Bryant and the prized organization had come to an end after a nearly decade-long run. As a Cowboy, Bryant had 531 receptions and carried them for 7,459 yards and 73 career touchdowns. After 113 career games with Dallas, he finds himself at an average of 14 yards per catch. The smiles he embraces on the day he had been cut may have been brought on by a bigger plan in mind.

Bryant has been dishing about some fantasies that he might be thinking about in his future.

Does Bryant want to play for the Giants?

According to Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan out of Dallas, Bryant told him that he would play against his former team twice in the upcoming season, making the assumption that he wants to sign with a fellow NFC East team. The Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, and New York giants round out the division, along with Dallas.

After saying that he'd be playing the Cowboys twice next season, he also talked about the considerable potential the Giants appear to have to offer.

"The Giants," he told Fisher, "got a helluva defense, they're going to pay [Odell Beckham Jr.].

He also went on to talk about playing with other Giants players like wide receiver Sterling Shepard, tight end Evan Engram, and veteran quarterback Eli Manning. Bryant described the possibility as "crazy."

Bryant says he enjoys New York City and his already existing relationship with Beckham Jr. is one that they both cherish even though, he says, others might not understand it.

"...Y'all like to criticise us for the little crazy things, but that's why we have each other, to keep each other lifted and to keep each other going," Bryant told ESPN about his relationship with the Giants star receiver. reported that Beckham Jr. said "He's like a brother to me," said about Bryant. "We're similar in a lot of ways."

Despite the inevitable want to play in New York and the bonds he has with the star player of the Giants, the possibility looks to be highly unlikely.

The Giants are toward the bottom of the NFL in cap space.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that the Giants are near the bottom of the league when it comes to cap room to sign players. Already having to get Beckham Jr. resigned, the Giants sit around $5 million left in cap space.

It is likely that Bryant is going to want to receive double that money at $10 million.

The likelihood of seeing Bryant play alongside the guys he blushed over is highly unlikely, but now fans know what the free agent wide receiver wants to do.
