Dez Bryant Is Pitching Himself to Bill Belichick and Patriots on Social Media
Bryant responded to a post about Belichick with compliments for the coach and Tom Brady.
Before the 2007 season, the Patriots brought seemingly washed-up wideout Randy Moss into the fold and made him a superstar once again.
Dez Bryant is no Moss, but it appears he’s looking to land a similar career makeover in New England by using his social media skills instead of his pass-catching abilities.
Still looking for a job after failing to latch on with the Browns, Bryant apparently was looking at Instagram and noticed a Bleacher Report piece about Bill Belichick.
Responding to the post, Bryant wrote that Belichick’s “strategy is 1 in a million.”
Then, when a Patriots fan commented Bryant should come to New England, Bryant responded with a comment about Tom Brady.

Despite the compliments, it’s unlikely Bryant will land in New England.
“Here’s a likely real fact: The Patriots won’t want Bryant, for plenty of reasons,” according to ProFootballTalk. “From a football standpoint, Bryant has spent eight seasons playing one position in one offense. Learning the Patriot Way on the fly would be a challenge that few could overcome.”
