There’s a new big name on the free agency market. Should the Washington Redskins be interested?

Former Dallas Cowboys All-Pro wide receiver Dez Bryant has found himself on the open market for the first time in his career. Drafted No. 24 overall in the 2010 NFL Draft, with one first team All-Pro selection and 3 Pro Bowl nods, most recently in 2016, Dez Bryant is a very interesting late addition to the free agent market.

Twitter exploded learning the result of the long-awaited meeting between Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Dez. If Bryant’s release wasn’t enough to stoke the flames, a report from Mickey Spagnola of DallasCowboys.com claimed that Bryant said: “I’ll see you guys twice this year” while exiting the meeting.

There are good arguments to be made both for and against the Washington Redskins signing Dez Bryant. I, for one, think he would be a great pickup. But fellow writer Ian Cummings isn’t so sure. Which one of us is right?
