Dez Bryant is doing his best to stay in shape for an NFL comeback after tearing his achilles.

The former Dallas Cowboys superstar tore his achilles this past season shortly after signing with the Saints, but he looks like he’s really trying to play again.

In a short workout video posted on Instagram, he runs routes and appears to be doing just fine. Give it a watch below. (RELATED: Dez Bryant Reveals If He Wants To Keep Playing In The NFL. Here’s What He Said)

Will Bryant play again? Who knows. He went several weeks last season before getting signed by the Saints, and he never even took a single snap on the field for them before getting hurt.

He’s 30 years old, hasn’t played in a year but he still has great size. If his achilles is really fully healed, then some team might bring him in on a very cheap deal.

Outside of him playing for pennies on the dollar, it might be tough for Bryant to find a ton of suitors.

He hasn’t played in a year, and outside of the Instagram video above, we have have no idea what he’s working with these days.

That doesn’t exactly inspire a ton of hope in his situation. I’m not cheering against the talented receiver, but it’s just the reality of the situation.

Career lifespans in the NFL are extremely short, and he might have met the end of his. I’d love to see him play again, but I’m not holding my breath.
