Nobody had the Dallas Cowboys turning the page to the offseason after Wild Card Weekend, but here we are. Fans probably want to mute everything Cowboys related, but there's still so much noise and news surrounding the team in the aftermath of Sunday's 48-32 loss to the Packers.

First and foremost is sorting out their roster before the offseason. Signing players to reserve/futures contracts generally initiates the roster navigation journey and the Cowboys did just that on Wednesday.

The list features multiple familiar names who stood out in training camp last summer, including wide receiver Jalen Cropper and tight end Princeton Fant, as well as practice squad regulars Sheldrick Redwine and Earl Bostick Jr.

No name stands out more than Martavis Bryant, however. That's right, folks. The Bryant experiment isn't over, after all.

Cowboys sign WR Martavis Bryant to reserve/futures contract

Bryant was signed to the Cowboys practice squad in early November after he was reinstated following an indefinite suspension from the league dating back to 2018. He was released after the new year to make room for La'el Collins. By all accounts, cutting Bryant was a difficult call by Dallas' front office.

Bryant made a strong impression with the Cowboys. He earned practice squad player of the week honors not long after signing. With the futures of Michael Gallup and Brandin Cooks uncertain, Bryant will look to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster.

With a full offseason to grasp the playbook and flash his athleticism, well, let's just say stranger things have happened in Dallas.
