His departure will likely make the Dez Bryant speculation grow louder.
Mike Fisher of 247Sports reported his sense after speaking with the former Dallas Cowboys wideout earlier this week was that he’d like to join the G-Men.
The Giants got a helluva defense, they’re going to pay OBJ (fellow wideout and pal Odell Beckham Jr.), so coming back.

That’d be crazy!
Video showed McDowell berating police officers during his arrest outside the SL Lounge in Chamblee, Ga. In the video obtained by TMZ Sports, McDowell can be heard calling the officers names using profanity, brags about his lawyer money, and at one point accusing officers of trying to plant evidence as they put him in handcuffs.
McDowell later apologized on Twitter.
I am embarrassed by the situation and my actions Saturday, McDowell wrote. I would like to apologize to the Atlanta Police Department, SL Lounge, the entire Seattle Seahawks organization and my teammates. I am a young man who made a mistake and am constantly working towards getting better.

Rodgers added: This process works, and it has worked for Mike [McCarthy] for a number of years. Obviously, that’s why he’s still here in his 13th season. We’ve had a lot of success here, and just got to trust the process.
Robinson’s report suggested Rodgers’ frustration with management decisions could affect negotiations on an eventual long-term deal. Rodgers is under contract for $20.3 million in 2018 and $20.5 million in 2019. With the Packers ‘ ability to wield the franchise tag the next two seasons, Green Bay has four years of leverage on its side.
Rodgers said Tuesday there is interest in getting a deal done, but it’s not his focus.
