Dez Bryant, wide receiver, Dallas Cowboys
Bryant didn’t necessarily mesh well with first-year quarterback Dak Prescott last season. After years of dominating on the gridiron with Tony Romo tossing him the rock, it was a difficult transition for Bryant. It also didn’t help that Bryant missed three games early in the season to injury. That surely played a role in his inability to create a relationship with the young quarterback.
In the end, Bryant would finish with 50 receptions for less than 800 yards and eight touchdowns. Definitely not No. 1 receiver numbers right there.
Now, with a full offseason to create a relationship, look for Prescott and Bryant to dominate the NFC East this upcoming season. Bryant looks to be 100 percent. He’s still the Cowboys’ top receiver. And he will be catching passes from a young signal caller that tallied 29 total touchdowns compared to four interceptions as a rookie. The writing is on the wall here, and it seems to indicate that Bryant will return to form in 2017.
