WATCH: Dez Bryant works out with Odell Beckham Jr. as rumors swirl
If Dez Bryant ends up does not end signing with the New York Giants, it will not be for lack of trying.
The receiver has made it clear from minutes after he was released by the Dallas Cowboys last week that he would prefer to stay in the NFC East, and the rumour mill has quickly zeroed in on MetLife Stadium as a likely destination.
Bryant stoked that speculation Thursday by posting a video to Instagram in which he is seen working out next to Giants star Odell Beckham Jr.
The full package qualifies as performance art, as the two receivers work out in slow motion with a large television screen behind them showing a commentator with the caption "Are the Cowboys a playoff team without Dez Bryant?"
The Giants did their part to keep the rumour alive by releasing receiver Brandon Marshall on Thursday, days after he had said there was no room for him, Beckham and Bryant in New York.
That move prompted a question about Bryant to Giants general manager Dave Gettleman at a pre-draft news conference.
"I'm interested in everybody," Gettleman responded. "We do our film work. You never know."
