Schefter points out that the Cardinals have very little money to work with, the Ravens do have room even after signing Michael Crabtree and the Packers could view him as a replacement to Jordy Nelson.
Here’s how much cap space these teams currently have to work with, according to OverTheCap.com:
- Cardinals: $19,327,068
- Bills: $16,359,956
- Packers: $16,231,975
- Ravens: $10,704,453
Bryant made it clear following his release that he would like to sign with an NFC East team. However, multiple reports have said that neither the Eagles, Giants or Redskins have much, if any, interest in pursuing Bryant.
At this point, it doesn’t appear as though Bryant is going to be big-money at this point in the offseason, especially if there’s only tepid interest from prospective teams.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Bryant to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.
Bryant, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $70 million contract that included $45 million guaranteed and was set to make base salaries of $12.5 million over the final two years of the agreement when Dallas released him in a move that freed up $8.5 million of available cap space.
In 2017, Bryant has appeared in 15 games for the Cowboys and has caught 66 passes for 814 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 45 receiver out of 116 qualifying players.
