Now that Dez Bryant is a free agent, there are four teams that reportedly have some degree of interest in the three-time Pro Bowler.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, people around the NFL listed the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills as potential landing spots for Bryant.
Per Over The Cap, the Cardinals have the most cap space among the four teams listed with $19.3 million available. The Ravens have the least amount of money available at $10.7 million. The Bills and Packers both have over $16 million to sign players.
A 1997 fourth-round pick by New Orleans, Wuerffel struggled mightily over the next three seasons. He threw a total of nine touchdown passes with 16 interceptions and a 48.4 completion percentage in 16 Saints games. Wuerffel was 2-4 in the contests he did start.
He then bounced around the league with stops in Green Bay and Chicago before reuniting in 2002 with Spurrier, who had left the Gators to become Washington’s head coach. The magic the two experienced at UF could not be recaptured, and Wuerffel was cut during the 2003 preseason.
Doering, who also was nearing the end of his own journeyman NFL career, remembers speaking to Wuerffel shortly after the release.
Talib racked up 71 tackles, 25 passes defensed, six interceptions and one Super Bowl ring while playing under Phillips for two years in Denver.
“He is a future Hall of Fame D-coordinator. So, anytime you get to share a meeting room with him everyday, you’re going to gain knowledge. He just taught me a lot about being a Pro, how to prepare for the game, and using my strengths on the field. That’s a huge part of the reason why I wanted to come play for him.”
The five-time Pro Bowler is now part of a defense that will feature another newcomer in cornerback Marcus Peters , safety Lamarcus Joyner and defensive tackle Aaron Donald . These names alone are enough to make the Rams serious Super Bowl contenders in 2018 and that’s enough to get Talib looking forward to the season.
“Man, I’m very excited just to be in L.A., the weather, just to be back with coach Wade and be with a nice team like this. This a great team, a great organization,” he said. “So a competitive team to be a part of a competitive team and make this run towards the Super Bowl is a blessing.”
