Ravens Promote Three Including WR Dez Bryant


According to Field Yates, the Ravens are promoting WR Dez Bryant from their practice squad to the active roster on Saturday. 

The Ravens also promoted G Will Holden and TE Luke Willson to their active roster. 

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 month ago for him to sign on to the Ravens’ practice squad. 

This marks the second time for him to get promoted after being active for Week 9, but he did not record any statistics. 

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.
