There is a possibility that the veteran wide receiver, Dez Bryant, will play alongside fellow wideout Odell Beckham Jr. with the New York Giants. The Washington Post reported that the Giants recently cut veteran wideout Brandon Marshall with a failed physical designation, according to general manager Dave Gettleman, who said the move will save the team $5.1 million against the cap. Marshall’s stint with the Giants lasted just five games after he suffered a season-ending ankle injury.

The Giants signed Marshall to a two-year, $12 million deal last March, expecting him to become another target for veteran quarterback Eli Manning.

However, the 34-year-old Marshall was a disappointment, catching just 18 passes for 154 yards and zero touchdowns. Marshall’s last productive season came in 2015 during his stint with the New York Jets, where he caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and a career-best 14 touchdowns.

Dez Bryant a possibility for the Giants

With Marshall out, the Giants have a room for another wide receiver behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. According to, Gettleman is open to the idea of signing former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who prefers the Giants as his next destination.

The Cowboys released Bryant after eight seasons with the team. It was reported that the Cowboys cut Bryant after he refused to take a pay cut.

However, Bryant said that he was not offered the option to take a pay cut during his meeting with team owner Jerry Jones. If Bryant joins the Giants, it will be ironic since Marshall earlier told him that there’s no room for him on the team. The Giants is also an ideal destination for Bryant, who prefers to stay in the NFC East so he can play his former team twice.

Bryant ideal complement to Beckham

Like Marshall, Bryant’s performance is on the decline as he failed to surpass the 1,000-catching yards mark in the past three seasons. Last season, Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games. In his eight-year stay with the Cowboys, Bryant caught 531 passes for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns.

If added by the Giants, Bryant is an ideal complement to Beckham and a dependable target for quarterback Eli Manning, who is raring to regain his form after a disappointing performance last season. Beckham is aiming to come back from a season-ending ankle injury that limited him to just four games last season. In that span, Beckham caught 25 passes for 302 yards and three touchdowns.
