Dez Bryant remains a Pro Bowl receiver without a home as the NFL season nears, and fans have taken to his Instagram account to implore him to join their team.

During an xchange with a Patriots fan on Instagram captured by the @BostonAmbrose Twitter account, Bryant responds to one fan's call to "come to the Patriots and play with the GOAT," by expressing his love for Tom Brady.

"Tom Brady has always been my favorite player.. real fact," Bryant replied.

Despite making three Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team during his eight-year career, Bryant remains unsigned. He recently visited the Cleveland Browns, but left without a contract. He's coming off a season that saw him catch 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns in Dallas.

Whether Bryant's love for Brady might be reciprocated by the Patriots is unclear, though the odds appear against it, since the season is barely three weeks away.
