Dez Bryant Reportedly Turned Down Baltimore Ravens Deal

Dez Bryant Reportedly Turned Down Baltimore Ravens Deal

Bryant isn't expected to sign until after this year's draft, which starts Thursday. Don't be surprised if the Cowboys draft a wide receiver in one of the first two rounds next weekend, but with this franchise, they might have another plan waiting to take place, and that is what makes the National Football League offseason intriguing. They also save from having to spend $16 million for Bryant in 2018, but they might have made life a little tougher for the rest of their receivers as he won't be on the field to take on the top defensive back of the opposition.

Dez Byrant had the opportunity to become a Raven, but he apparently decided against it.

It looks like former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is willing to bet on himself.

According to Ed Werder, the Baltimore Ravens offered the former Pro Bowler a multi-year contract, but he turned it down.

Bryant only wanted a one-year deal. "An enormous amount of thanks goes out to the Cowboys organization for their cooperation in filming throughout the season". After averaging 13.7 touchdown catches per season from 2012-14, Bryant hasn't even hit the 10-touchdown mark in the three seasons since then.

Ian Rapoport followed up by pointing out the reality that the Ravens required a multi-year deal in order to massage it into their cap window.
