Dez Bryant was in the building for the Dallas Cowboys 20-17 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals and the three-time Pro Bowler made some time to catch up with Jerry Jones.

Bryant has made some headlines recently after making a pitch about how he could help the receiver-needy Cowboys if they signed him. But it sounds like Sunday’s trip to AT&T Stadium was more about fun than petitioning Jones and Co. for a roster spot.

Bryant put a $10,000 bet on the Cowboys to upset the Bengals as a touchdown underdog, which netted him $37,000. Bryant and Jones met up after the game and Bryant could be heard telling the Cowboys owner, “Wasn’t one doubt in my mind.”

But it’s also fairly clear that Bryant would welcome another shot with the Cowboys, despite notching just six catches since 2017. After the Week 1 disaster against the Bucs, Bryant made his pitch.

The idea of Dallas inking Bryant was initially pitched by former NFLer — and brief Cowboy — Datone Jones.

“No lie it won’t be a bad idea to bring Dez Bryant in,” Jones tweeted. “He would definitely wake the WR room up. [CeeDee] needs a mentor.”

That caught Bryant’s attention and he seemed to embrace the idea of being a veteran mentor for the young group of receivers.
