The Ravens Are Reportedly Interested in Signing Dez Bryant


The Dallas Cowboys, as was inevitable as long as he would not take a pay cut, released Dez Bryant last Friday.

However, the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles reportedly aren't interested in signing Bryant, meaning he'll likely have to take his talents to a team in another division.

After the Dallas Cowboys chose to part ways with the veteran wideout on Friday to save up a some money in the salary cap department, it will only be a matter of time before Bryant finds a new home for the 2018 season. With that in mind, one of the teams that Bryant has become quite intrigued by is the Los Angeles Rams as he recently praised Jared Goff, Todd Gurley and recently acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks, according to Mike Fisher of CBS 247 Sports.

The Ravens have already added a pair of wideouts this offseason, signing ex-Oakland Raider Michael Crabtree to a three-year, $21 million deal and bringing in former Arizona Cardinal John Brown. The Baltimore Ravens were immediately mentioned, and Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun has reported they are indeed interested in the mercurial wide receiver. "Ravens fans, who still lament the fact that the team was unable to land Bryant in the 2010 draft, seem infatuated with the idea".

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

Jones thanked Bryant for his contributions to the Cowboys over the past eight years but said releasing the veteran wideout was "in the best interest" of the organization.

That said, the Rams now do not have the financial flexibility to add Bryant to the mix with just over $3.8 million salary cap space. Last year, he caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns.
