Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant wants to play for the 49ers. He revealed his preference on Instagram when a fan asked him which team he wants to play for, and Bryant wrote “49ers.” He then deleted the comment.
Bryant, 29, played 16 games last season for the Cowboys and caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns. He has caught 73 touchdown passes since 2010, while Pierre Garcon, the 49ers No. 1 receiver, has caught just 37 touchdown passes since 2008. Garcon will turn 32 on August 8.
The 49ers most likely could sign Bryant to a one-year contract, and they currently have more than $37 million in cap space. Should they sign him? Why or why not?
