Ravens To Sign Dez Bryant To Practice Squad?

The Ravens will sign Dez Bryant to the practice squad if his upcoming workout goes well, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The Ravens have been in talks with Bryant for a long, long time, but it sounds like he’ll finally land in Baltimore.

The former Cowboys All-Pro auditioned for the Raves back in August, marking his first tryout since he suffered an Achilles tear in November 2018. The Ravens’ interest in Bryant goes back much further than this past summer – soon after the Cowboys let Bryant walk in free agency two years ago, the Ravens offered him a three-year, $21MM deal. Bryant turned that proposal down and remained in free agency for several months before signing a less lucrative Saints deal and ending up on the team’s IR list. Bryant, 32 in November, has not played since the 2017 season.

Before all of that, Bryant was a three-time Pro Bowler in Dallas with three-straight seasons of at least 1,200 yards. Now, Bryant is eager to return to the field and prove that he still has gas in the tank.

    I think this is a low risk high reward deal for the Ravens I mean they do need help at wide receiver if Brian can come back and give them remotely anything like he was in Dallas maybe even 50% of what he was in Dallas he could really help the Ravens down the stretch this season you know another big Target for Lamar Jackson like I said this is a really good move just like the Yannick move earlier today. maybe Howie roseman should sit there and take notice of what’s going on in Baltimore give Eric the Costa a call and say hey can you tell me how you do what you do

    If there could be an extra S in his middle name his full name could be Desmond Desmond Bryant.

        One, despite fan opinions to the contrary, is much less of an off the field concern than the other. Not to mention that there is much more certainty that Bryant has been trying to get back into the NFL right now than Brown. Would Brown even accept a practice squad deal? I don’t know, but I find that doubtful.

          Despite Browns many off field concerns teams still view Brown as a player who could make a difference on the field. If Browns skill level was that of Bryant’s he’d never sign any kind of contract in the NFL. The Bucs signed him because they believe he can still play
