Redskins Still Have No Interest In WR Dez Bryant


Despite dealing with injuries at receiver, JP Finlay of NBC Washington reports that the Redskins have “no intention” of pursuing free agent WR Dez Bryant.

On Sunday, Bryant mentioned via his Twitter account that he believes he would be a good fit for the Patriots and Redskins.

Bryant has previously pitched the idea of playing for Washington, but they haven’t shown any serious interest in him up to this point.

The Browns brought Bryant in a for a visit and reportedly discussed a potential deal, but it remains to be seen whether anything gets done with Cleveland.

Bryant reportedly turned down a three-year, $21 million offer from the Ravens after he was released a few months ago. Since then, the market has been very slow-moving for Bryant, so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise to hear that he may end up waiting another month or so before signing.

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.
