Could you imagine an Odell Beckham Jr.-Dez Bryant one-two punch? Well, the New York Giants won’t have any of it as it appears no interest exists in the former Dallas Cowboys wideout.
It doesn’t matter if you’re digging it. The New York Giants aren’t.
According to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports, Dave Gettleman and his people aren’t loving the idea of an Odell Beckham Jr.-Dez Bryant tag-team combo at the wide receiver spot. They’re simply not interested in pursuing the newest former Dallas Cowboys employee.
More on Dez Bryant: The #Redskins, per a league source, “have not discussed [him] at all” and have no desire to explore signing him. I’m also told the #Giants are not interested – neither are the #Eagles. So Dez’s goal of remaining in the NFC East appears to be a pipe dream. https://t.co/svOW357u9W

Bryant, 29, was cut by the Cowboys on Friday after eight seasons of solid ball and a full offseason of rumors leading to his eventual Dallas exit.
As a first-round selection by Dem Boys back in 2010, the Oklahoma State product put forth 7,459 yards and 73 scores on 531 total hauls. He made three trips to the Pro Bowl while earning First Team All-Pro honors back in 2014, the best season of his career in which he tallied 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns.
As soon as the Bryant news was unveiled, several NFL players took to Twitter with recruitment on the mind. One such player has been New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. From a Giants perspective, all has remained quiet.
Per Schultz’s report, Bryant wants to remain in the NFC East for no other reason than to face the Cowboys twice a season. New York may have been his best shot considering the Philadelphia Eagles have no money and the Washington Redskins aren’t interested.
Considering Gettleman is dealing with headaches revolving around one already employed diva wideout, it’s doubtful he’d welcome another.
Dez Bryant will be forced to move on to another division.
