Dez Bryant may or may not become a Giant, but he certainly wants the world to know that he is working out with one.

The free-agent wide receiver, who has not been shy about his desire to join the Giants, posted a video on Instagram late Thursday showing him training with Odell Beckham Jr.

Another interesting part of the video is in the background: A large screen is showing a clip from the NFL Network show “Good Morning Football” in which the topic of discussion is: “Are the Cowboys a Playoff Team Without Dez Bryant?”

Since his release by the Cowboys last week, Bryant has expressed a desire to stay in the NFC East and stick it to Dallas twice a year. The Giants probably endorse that idea. As for whether they actually will sign the 29-year-old wide receiver, whose production has been on the downslope and who has injury red flags, that remains murky.

The Giants just released Brandon Marshall, which means they do have an opening on their roster for a big-bodied veteran receiver. But it also means they are coming off a failed relationship with a big-bodied veteran receiver and might not want to engage in another so quickly.

“I have interest in everybody,” general manager Dave Gettleman said on Thursday when asked about pursuing Bryant. “We do our film work. You never know.”

In any case, Bryant seems happy to be working with Beckham during the offseason. And it’s another not-so-subtle hint that he’d like to do it during the regular season as well.
