Former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant created a bit of a buzz when he recently tweeted that he would not mind returning to play for Dallas. Though, this does not look like it is going to happen.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones effectively shut down any possibility of Bryant re-signing with the Cowboys during an interview with 105.3 The Fan.
Jerry Jones on @1053thefan said he wishes Dez Bryant the best, but it's not currently in Dallas' best interest or Bryant's best interest to have him return to the Cowboys. Jones said he is on board with the team's decision to not have Bryant on the team

This is about as cut and dry as it gets. Fans of Bryant won’t see him suiting up in a Cowboys jersey anytime soon, if at all.
As it stands, Bryant remains a free agent after turning down offers to play in both Baltimore and Cleveland. And even with teams housing injured wide receivers after four weeks of action, no franchise has appeared to reach out to Bryant.
We will see if that continues to remain the case as the season progresses further.
As it pertains to the Cowboys, their passing offense ranks 29th in the league. It is anyone’s guess as to whether Bryant would help improve it should Jones have a change of heart.
