Baltimore Ravens Are Interested In Signing Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant's Goal To Stay In NFC East Reportedly “Not Being Embraced” By Eagles, Giants, Redskins

Even still, Zrebiec reports, those signings didn't spell the end of Baltimore's pursuit of receivers: the team met with Cameron Meredith, who ended up signing with the Saints, and submitted a bid on Allen Hurns, who wound up signing with the Cowboys, ostensibly as a supplement to Bryant.

The Dallas Cowboys, as was inevitable as long as he would not take a pay cut, released Dez Bryant last Friday. Combined with a large salary-cap number for a player who wasn't producing 1,200-yard, 10-touchdown seasons anymore, Dallas chose to cut him loose. There is significant interest from the team to find help through the draft in the early rounds.

"A person familiar with the Redskins' thinking who spoke on condition of anonymity said the team isn't interested in Bryant right now".

The Ravens added Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, but adding another wide receiver has to be on the radar.

The Ravens might be able to spare Bryant from a wandering quest for employment by acting quickly on their desires and convincing him Baltimore is a worthy stage for the second act of his National Football League career.

Bryant was released from the Cowboys due to the potential cap hit, which was $17 million last season.

The Ravens have more than $10 million in salary-cap space, so they should have the financial means to make a deal happen if they so desire.

He amassed a career-best 16 touchdowns in 2014. Derrick Mason had a nice second act from 2007-2009, his age 33, 34 and 35 seasons, averaging 85 catches per season with over 1,000 yards in all three campaigns.
