Ravens Interested in Dez Bryant

Ravens Interested in Dez Bryant

While the Texans play the Cowboys twice this season (preseason and regular season), most believe he's referring to the Giants, Eagles or Redskins - divisional opponents.

It's not likely that Dez Bryant will remain a free agent for long, and the top team on the shortlist of those looking to sign him is the Baltimore Ravens, although Bryant himself might prefer, for now, to stay in the NFC East. Between 2012 and 2014 Bryant was one of the most productive wide receivers in the National Football League, averaging 91 receptions, 1312 yards and 14 touchdowns a season, including an NFL-best 16 in 2014. There is significant interest from the team to find help through the draft in the early rounds. 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.

It appears, however, that none of the other teams in the NFC East are interested in acquiring Bryant.

So far reports have surfaced of more teams not interested in Bryant than interested in him.




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.

"Now, Bryant is suddenly available after the Dallas Cowboys unceremoniously released the 29-year-old late last week". However, Bryant's production has dipped sharply in recent seasons-he hasn't topped 900 receiving yards in three years, and he's combined for just 17 TD grabs in that span.

He amassed a career-best 16 touchdowns in 2014.
