Dez Bryant Begging Cowboys To Trade For Young Pro Bowl Star

In a recent social media rant, former NFL star Dez Bryant expressed his concern for Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts, calling on the Dallas Cowboys to “save” the young Pro Bowler from his current situation.

Pitts, the #4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, had a disappointing Week 1 performance, prompting Bryant’s plea for a change of scenery.

“Get @kylepitts__ to Dallas please!!! This is unacceptable!!! He deserves better,” Bryant wrote on X.

Pitts, who entered the NFL with high expectations, faced a lackluster start to his sophomore season. In Week 1, he caught only two of three targets for 44 yards in the Falcons victory over the Carolina Panthers, leading to concerns about his utilization in Atlanta’s offense.

Despite his immense potential, Pitts has struggled at times to make a significant impact in the NFL, amassing 98 receptions for 1,426 yards and three touchdowns over 28 career games.

Bryant emphasized that the blame should not fall on Falcons quarterback Desmond Ridder, stating that Ridder “has nothing to do with the play calls.”

“Kyle Pitts is wasting generational talent inside a dysfunctional organization at the moment struggling to get him the ball,” Bryant continued. “Get Pitts outta there and put him in a situation where he can thrive.”

Bryant’s plea for Pitts to join the Cowboys is rooted in the belief that Dallas could provide a more favorable environment for the 22-year-old tight end.

The Cowboys have a history of utilizing tight ends effectively, and the departure of Dalton Schultz to the Houston Texans has created an opportunity for Pitts to shine in the passing game.

In Week 1, Jake Ferguson, Schultz’s replacement, managed only two receptions for 11 yards in a 40-0 blowout win over the New York Giants.

“We need @kylepitts__ !!!”

However, it remains doubtful that Atlanta would entertain the idea of trading Pitts, despite not maximizing his abilities so far.

What do you think of Dez’s idea?

Should the Cowboys go after Pitts? (Could they even afford him?)
