1. He can still play.
Despite all else, Bryant still has something left in the tank. Many people have overexaggerated his downfall, claiming he simply can’t play. The fact is, he can play, just not at the salary he was about to command this season.
Just last year, he put up 838 yards and six touchdowns while catching 69 passes. While those aren’t great numbers, they are better than average.
It’s also worth noting he played with the overrated Dak Prescott at quarterback. Prescott was billed as the next Troy Aikman after he went 13-3 in his rookie season and helped lead the Cowboys to a first-round bye in the playoffs. However, he’s much more of a game manager than anything else, only throwing for 23 and 22 touchdowns respectively in his first two seasons in the NFL. He could certainly get closer to the 1000 yard mark with Rodgers as his quarterback.
When historians look back at the Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay, this might be one of the moves they lament or praise depending on what Green Bay does. They want to provide him with all the help and support he can get. This is his Deztiny.
