In a surprising move, the Dallas Cowboys have signed veteran wide receiver Martavis Bryant to their practice squad after a successful workout, according to a report by the Dallas Morning News.

Bryant, who was recently reinstated by the NFL, impressed the Cowboys' coaching staff during his workout on Tuesday. The 31-year-old Bryant, originally a promising prospect from Clemson, entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2014 NFL Draft.

He showed early promise, recording eight touchdowns in just 10 games during his rookie season and 765 receiving yards in his second year. However, Bryant's career was marred by run-ins with the league office due to violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

He faced multiple suspensions during his time with the Steelers and was conditionally reinstated in 2017, which marked his last season with Pittsburgh. After a brief stint with the Oakland Raiders in 2018, Bryant was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement.

Despite his checkered history, Bryant remained active in football, making appearances in the CFL and more recently in the XFL with the Vegas Vipers. It remains to be seen how much Bryant has left in the tank and whether he can contribute to the Cowboys.

The team's wide receiver corps already includes CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Brandin Cooks, KaVontae Turpin, Jalen Tolbert, and Jalen Brooks on the 53-man roster. This unexpected signing adds an intriguing dimension to the Cowboys' receiving options, and fans will be watching closely to see if Martavis Bryant can make a successful NFL comeback with Dallas.
