Dez Bryant is spending his time on the free agent market playing NFL analyst on Twitter

Bryant says he’ll be back on the football field soon, but until then, he’s continuing to tweet his thoughts on the Cowboys.

Dez Bryant reportedly turned down an offer from the Baltimore Ravens early in the offseason, and his August visit with the Cleveland Browns didn’t end with him signing a contract either.

Instead, the former Dallas Cowboys receiver is currently spending his Sundays like most of us — watching a whole lot of football from the couch.

He promises he’ll “be pursuing football again shortly,” but until then, he’s been sharing his thoughts about the NFL season on Twitter. Bryant, who also tweeted a bit about preseason football this year, is quickly becoming our favorite Twitter analyst.

He’s a believer in what Washington’s doing

Washington opened its season with a dominant 24-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals that saw the team rack up 429 total yards compared to Arizona’s 213. To Bryant, they look like “East Texans,” which is apparently a good thing.

The redskins looking nice it’s a bunch of East Texans over.. I’m just saying

He also said he’d be much more interested in joining Washington or New England instead of reuniting with the Cowboys.

Naw I’m ok.. I rather go somewhere I can show case my skills for real.. if I line up next to Gronk hogan Edelman I’m for sure getting a 1 on 1 match up plus I won’t be getting criticized controlled for expressing my love for the game..Washington is cool as well https://t.co/lywVw8QzIa

But most of his tweets have been reserved for his former team.

Bryant dialed back his Cowboys criticism … a little bit

In July, the three-time Pro Bowl receiver started beefing with his former team on Twitter. In particular, he blasted offensive coordinator Scott Linehan’s “garbage ass play calling” which he says put “everybody in the same spot for 17 weeks.”

The Cowboys opened their 2018 season with a 16-8 loss to the Carolina Panthers and Newton tweeted his mostly benign thoughts along the way:

Damn Cam!

Good strip Ross

But he couldn’t help but feel a little validated by the Cowboys’ offensive struggles. Dallas finished with just 232 yards of total offense and didn’t convert a third down at all in the first half. Cole Beasley was the only Cowboys receiver with more than three receptions.

It’s kind of cool calling out all of the signals and knowing which route players are about run

Bryant also laughed at the Cowboys for cutting kicker Dan Bailey and replacing him on the roster with Brett Maher, who missed his only field goal of the day.

Last thing DAN BAILEY!!!!!!

According to Bryant, Week 1 was the last time he’ll tweets his thoughts on the Cowboys.

After today I’m done talking about the cowboys if I try to say something good or a factual it always turned out to be negative plus I don’t want it to seem that’s where I’m focused I know the team well so it’s hard not for me to speak .. all I ever cared about was winning

But before he left for the day, he reminded everyone that they should be giving Troy Aikman heat for making the same criticisms Bryant made in July.

I need everyone to go criticize Troy aikman dropped https://t.co/nYssnEGV34

We’ll see if he sticks to his promise not to talk about the Cowboys, but he probably isn’t done speaking his mind.
