Dez Bryant Isn’t Expected To Sign Before Draft

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, free agent WR Dez Bryant isn’t expected to sign prior to the draft.

It’s clear that the market for Bryant isn’t all that active or he would have had a deal in place with a new team by now.

The Ravens reportedly had interest in him before they signed WR Wilie Snead away from the Saints.

Bryant has made it clear that he would like to play for an NFC East team with the Giants appearing to be his preference. However, neither the Giants, Redskins or Eagles have shown any interest in him up to this point.

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.
