You can give me pie charts all day. My eyes & his stats tell me he sucks.

 

Context is what I care about...

 

Since he is a proven stud who has proven him self over multiple seasons...lets look at his last 3 seasons and why they have stunk.

2017 - No Zeke and No #2 passing option with a regressed Dak.

2016 - Major injury and never fully healed

2015 - Major injury

2014 - 88/1320/16

 

Context does matter a bit if you want to evaluate. 

Here is a video of every incompletion from Dez in 2017...Its Dak, not Dez.

 

Oh and according to the new rules...DEZ CAUGHT IT!

I made it 8 minutes into that video, and I don't know about the rest of you guys, but to me it looks like Dez and Dak both suck. Dez aka Hands of Stone (great in boxing, not so much here) and Dak looking like prime Blaine Gabbert.

Dez was a stud back in 2014.  But that was so long ago, and it was with Romo at QB.

Not with that trash WR corps he couldn't. No one there scares defenses.

Dez expected to get released today per Schefter

Gotta think so....unless he decides that no income tax and a wr1 job is worth the pay cut.   The other thing I think about-  Jerry takes care of his own.   A gesture of this type might earn Dez a role in the organization long after his playing days are done.  

 

I doubt Dez is mature enough to accept this ego bruise so it likely won’t matter.

While he isn't an incredible WR anymore I would take him in Seattle. That being said, some bum organization is probably going to overpay a slightly above average WR like he is elite.

Seattle its a team i've thought all along makes a ton of sense for Dez.  That or the Redskins.  Maybe Niners, we know they have cash

Bumping on the Seattle front- if they can afford him that makes sense..   Money wise- I'm thinking whatever Brandon Marshall got last offseason is a fair target.    

 

And allow me to (I think) be the first to speculate on Patriots.    Cooks is gone, there's an opening............

He would be a nice WR2/WR3 for the Giants :)

Wow, how quickly he's fallen.

Surprising that they wouldn't at least try to get something for him, but I guess the price is too much for others.

He's one of those guys that in recent years gets drafted on name alone.  His problem in Dallas is that while he is a prototypical #1, they never fed him the ball like he needed it.

He'll make a fine #2 for some WR needy team and thus might actually for once return good draft value.

I don't know how you make any strong confident argument that includes "Well we haven't seen it since 2014, BUT." 

 

Like don't get me wrong, I agree that there's some pretty big "buts" here, but when it comes to the NFL you can't be saying "Well he did it in 2014." The game moves way too fast and players change too much and are too tied to physical attributes to point to 2014 for solace. 

 

You either believe he showed enough talent wise in 2017 to warrant whatever round he may be at (plus the now new situation) or you don't. But I don't think you should be basing your assessment on 2014 and just throwing out the last three.

Hello Indy, It's me Dez? :o

 

I think this makes the most sense actually. They have alot of cap room, and need a physical guy across from TY, as well as a red zone threat. Would def bump up Andrew Luck's stock a bit as well

Not looking too much into his tweets, but Dez is UPSET and has eluded that he wants to face the Cowboys "twice" and that it's "personal". Eagles? Redskins? or....

 

Nothing would hurt Jerry more than seeing Dez in a Giants jersey LMAO.
