Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is looking to get back to NFL. Bryant, who spent a year recovering from torn Achilles tendon, announced on Wednesday that he will soon reach out to teams in order to see if there is an interest in his services.

Bryant wrote on Twitter that he doesn’t expect to be a starter with his new team, but looks to “contribute.” He also added that he’s “feeling good” considering his injury issues.

Bryant hasn’t played an NFL game since 2017 season with Cowboys. After Dallas released him in early 2018, the veteran WR took his time to find a new team before signing with New Orleans Saints in Week 10. However, before he had a chance to step on the field, he ended up tearing his Achilles tendon during practice.

Dez Bryant spent the first eight years of his career with Dallas Cowboys, who took him 24th overall in the 2010 draft. During his time with the organization, Bryant made three Pro Bowls while earning First-team All-Pro and leading the league in touchdowns in 2014.

Bryant’s NFL career stats include 531 receptions for 7,459 yards and 73 TDs.
