Eric Weddle reached out to Dez Bryant

Former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is thought to be interested in playing for an NFC East team like the Giants in order to maximize his chances to face his former team, but there’s been no sign that those clubs are moving to add him to the roster.

There has been word of interest from the Ravens, however, and one of their veterans said he’s joining the recruiting effort. Safety Eric Weddle said on Tuesday that he’s made an overture toward Bryant in order to pitch the wideout on coming to Baltimore.

“I’ve reached out to him,” Weddle said. “Dez is an amazing player, passionate, competitive, everything you want in a teammate. For a guy like that who just came off a tough situation, you just want what’s best for him and where he feels comfortable.”

Weddle didn’t say if he and Bryant have connected, but said he’ll lay out the “pros and cons” of life with the Ravens because he’s a straight shooter on such topics. He added he didn’t have many cons to report, so we’ll see if Weddle’s words help pave a path to Baltimore.

  1. “Hewy Dez, it’s your buddy Eric. How ya doin buddy? Listen, now that you aren’t on a team we’d love to have you. Of course, we don’t have a QB to throw the ball to you. But you have also declined. So you probably won’t be productive. How does the vets minimum sound? And ya gotta promise to keep your mouth shut. We don’t whiners like complainers.”

    Is it too early to begin the yearly “Ravens are the team that no one wants to face” spiel? Do we have to wait for Coach Cowher?

  3. Just can’t get my fill of all the Ravenhaters. When it’s all said and done, Dez will be a Raven, he will be extremely productive, he will pair with King Crab as a scoring duo in the red zone. Hey doubters, keep doubting, we feed off it in BMore!

  4. Did Weddle say he’d take less money to give the Ravens the caps space to sign him? didn’t think so.

  5. He’s lost a step and lost his desire. Not nearly the player he was a couple years ago. Ozzie won’t invest big bucks in this head case.

  7. I am guessing that we fans don’t really have an idea of what he has left in the tank but I am sure the experts can make a good guess. This close to the draft and no one has pounced on him suggests that teams are weighing a rookie instead of him and I don’t think that bodes well. Could he be a post draft option for teams who missed on the player that they wanted?

  8. If Dez is smart he’ll sign a one year prove it deal with a team that has a good offense and a QB who can throw the ball. He won’t be playing in Baltimore next year.

    How far did you guys go in the playoffs again? And when was your last championship? Enjoy many years of mediocrity with Marvin.
