Dez Bryant ain’t done with football yet … the former Dallas Cowboys superstar tells TMZ Sports he’s not retired — and still wants to catch passes from Kyler Murray in the desert.
We got Bryant out at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas this week … and he made it clear, despite not playing since the 2020 season, he’s not callin’ it a career yet.
In fact, Dez told us he’s still gunnin’ to get a contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
“Kyler, the coach — I love the swagger over there,” said the 33-year-old, who initially revealed to us back in 2021 that he wanted to be a Card. “I just love the guys, especially DeAndre Hopkins — that’s my boy. We real close.”
Bryant said he’d be willing to take a bit of a backseat in order to play for Kliff Kingsbury — explaining he wouldn’t mind being a backup wideout and a locker room guy if needed.
Bryant told us being a mentor to young players is something that’s important to him … and, clearly, he believes he could be valuable in that role and beyond for the Cardinals.
As for if he’s still in shape — Bryant said not quite yet, but he told us he ain’t too far off.
