Jason Witten may have recently retired from the NFL, but he's still making his presence felt with a juicy prediction of former teammate Dez Bryant's next landing spot.

Bryant, recently cut by the Cowboys, remains unsigned. He played alongside Witten his entire career, but neither will play for Dallas this season. But Witten thinks he knows where Bryant will play.

"I think Dez is certainly going to have some great opportunities. He's motivated and I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers," Witten said on The Adam Schefter Podcast.

Though the Packers drafted three wide receivers in this year's NFL draft, they lack established options after releasing Jordy Nelson, who signed with the Raiders.

The Packers return Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, and they signed tight end Jimmy Graham, but Bryant's ability to pick up first downs and contribute in the red zone could be enticing to quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

"Rodgers, he throws that back-shoulder throw so well and Dez has great chemistry with a good quarterback that can put the ball wherever he wants," Witten, the new voice of Monday Night Football, said. "Because I still believe Dez can high-point the football as good as any other wide receiver in the National Football League."

Bryant reportedly turned down a multi-year deal with the Ravens before the Draft, hoping to secure a one-year "prove-it" deal. Should he end up in Green Bay, he may finally get a chance to contend for his first Super Bowl appearance.
