Two weeks ago, former Cowboys defensive back Deion Sanders pleaded for Dallas to re-sign Bryant.
Following Sanders was former Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who pleaded for someone to sign Bryant, per the Dallas Morning News :
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.
Tony Romo, his former quarterback, is endorsing Bryant for future employment, based on comments he made on May 1st, per ESPN :
If I was talking to any of the GMs or coaches, I would tell them he’s not going to hurt the locker room in any possible way. He’s going to come out and he’ll be a great teammate when he gets there. I think he’ll have a couple options here soon.
Jason Witten, his former tight end, tried pumping up Bryant by speculating he would be a good fit for the Green Bay Packers.
Deveney is Rutgers’ third commitment of the day, following St. John Vianney (Holmdel, N.J.) offensive lineman C.J. Hanson and Worcester (Mass.) Academy safety Zukudo Igwenagu.
Rutgers’ new offense also had something do with his pick.
It was Coach (John) McNulty’s offense, he said. He always has one tight end, two tight ends or even three tight ends on the field. He also coached Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry and those are some good tight ends. And I hope he can develop me like those guys.
