Ravens Plan To Sign WR Dez Bryant To Practice Squad


Update: According to Ian Rapoport, free-agent WR Dez Bryant is flying to Baltimore now to sign with the Ravens’ practice squad, pending a physical. 

According to Josina Anderson, free-agent WR Dez Bryant is a candidate to potentially land on the Ravens practice squad.

Bryant had a workout with the Ravens earlier this season but nothing has come of it yet so far. But with Baltimore’s offense struggling, the team could be on the verge of making a move to get Bryant in the system. 

Anderson says this move would be in lieu of signing WR Antonio Brown, who is nearing the end of his eight-game suspension and worked out with a few Ravens players this offseason. 

Bryant, 31, 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 last year. 

The Saints signed Bryant to a one-year deal worth $600,000 over the remainder of the season, but he suffered a torn Achilles.

Bryant has been an unrestricted free agent for over a year now.

In 2017, Bryant appeared in 15 games for the Cowboys and has caught 66 passes for 814 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 45 receiver out of 116 qualifying players that season.

We’ll have more on Bryant as the news is available.
