Ravens Promote WR Dez Bryant To Active Roster


Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Ravens have promoted WR Dez Bryant to their active roster, paving the way for his return to NFL action. 

Other roster moves from the Ravens today include:

The Ravens had been taking things slow with Bryant since signing him a few weeks ago. However, it appears as though they’re ready to bring him up and see what he can do for them. 

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. It took until a few weeks ago for him to sign on to the Ravens’ practice squad. 

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.
