FRISCO (105.3 The Fan) - While the Cowboys no longer wanted Dez Bryant to be a part of their franchise, they can't understand why another team doesn't either. 

"I don’t know the details as to why he hasn’t picked a home,” Cowboys executive Stephen Jones said Tuesday, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I am sure he is being very thoughtful about it. I am sure he has good people talking to him too. I am sure at the end of the day he is being thoughtful about what his next steps should be. I am sure he is working hard. No one is rooting for Dez more than we are.”

According to Hill, Jones said multiple teams contacted them to ask about Bryant. 

“You know at [NFL] meetings I have had different conversations about him,” Jones said. “At the Competition Committee meeting, some of the coaches there speak to it. I’m sure other coaches have called our coaches and wanted input on him. The greatest thing about Dez is he is a fierce competitor. I think he is now more driven and more competitive than he has ever been. We wish him nothing but the best.”

When asked on Instagram over the weekend who he wanted to play for, Dez Bryant said the "49ers," before later deleting the post.
