It took a few days, but Dez Bryant has finally received interest from another team that would love to bring him aboard.
Releases from the Dallas Cowboys after 8 seasons, majority successful although not much recently, Bryant is rumored to be hoping to get offers from the New York Giants, Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles or the Washington Redskins. 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.
The Ravens are interested in signing the former All-Pro wide receiver as a free agent, The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reported Monday, citing sources. Combined with a large salary-cap number for a player who wasn't producing 1,200-yard, 10-touchdown seasons anymore, Dallas made a decision to cut him loose. 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.
"Now, Bryant is suddenly available after the Dallas Cowboys unceremoniously released the 29-year-old late last week". He's not going to make that much money in Baltimore, who have a bit more than $10 million in cap space to work with, and that's before their draft picks come in.
So far reports have surfaced of more teams not interested in Bryant than interested in him.
The native of Lufkin, TX had a career-best season in 2014 when he had 1,320 yards on 88 receptions and a league-leading 16 touchdowns. They will be in the mix for a playoff spot, and there will be an opportunity to produce well on an one-year, "prove-it"-type deal".
