Former Patriots WR Troy Brown feels the Patriots need to stay away from Dez Bryant
After Josh Gordon returned to the Browns, Dez Bryant became an aftermath for the Browns. The former Cowboys wide out made a statement this week saying Tom Brady has always been his favorite player.
After releasing Kenny Britt on Wednesday, Bryant’s name kept coming up. Troy Brown who spent 15 seasons in New England from 1993 to 2007, doesn’t think Bryant is a good fit for his former team.
“They don’t need Dez right now,” Brown said on NBC Sports Boston. “I just don’t think he’s their kind of guy, their kind of receiver, that they want in this offense. Obviously, people are seeing some things in the guy that they don’t care for a whole lot. I just don’t think he runs the type of routes the Patriots want from a receiver right now. That’s the kind of guy they’re trying to find, but I just don’t think they should waste their time on Dez Bryant. He’s not as explosive as he used to be.”
