Ravens Want To Sign Dez Bryant To Bolster Receiver Corps


Ravens Want To Sign Dez Bryant To Bolster Receiver Corps

Since it was announced last week that the Dallas Cowboys had chose to release him, Dez Bryant has been chronicling his first experience with free agency on Twitter. We're not out to drag an outcast under the guise of trying to uncover why a team released him, but according to Irvin, that seemed to bubble over into producing negative results recently.

There is, however, a team in the AFC North that is interested and that's the Baltimore Ravens, sources told Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

Bryant, 29, was released by the Dallas Cowboys after eight seasons last week. He also said he wants to play in the NFC East, in order to play the Cowboys twice, specifically citing how he took the move to cut him personally.

It appears, however, that none of the other teams in the NFC East are interested in acquiring Bryant. The Ravens already have signed receivers Michael Crabtree and John Brown this offseason but they might not be finished adding to quarterback Joe Flacco's arsenal of wideouts.

Baltimore has proven to be a good landing spot for older wide receivers in the past.

Last season, the 2010 first-round pick out of Oklahoma State finished with 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

Bryant is a three-time Pro Bowler, but he has not reached 1,000 yards receiving or 10 touchdowns in a season since 2014.

Do the Baltimore Ravens see Dez Bryant as the final piece of their pass-catching puzzle? But as is often the case with wide receivers, ego will probably drive him to another team with a personal desire to stick it to the Cowboys further fostering a bad fit.
