Ravens look at Dez Bryant, not Antonio Brown

Multiple Ravens players have lobbied for the team to take a look at receiver Antonio Brown. Instead, the Ravens will be taking a look at receiver Dez Bryant.

No one has shown any interest in Brown since the league issued an eight-game suspension for a pair of off-field incidents. One impediment could be the unresolved civil lawsuit accusing Brown of sexual assault and rape. The league’s investigation has to date been inconclusive, but the case hasn’t been closed.

If the litigation results in a finding that Brown did what he is accused of doing, the league could impose further punishment. Moreover, signing Brown would become even more of a P.R. problem.

It could be that the teams will wait, not just for the suspension to be served but for the litigation to be resolved.

Bryant last played in 2017. He joined the Saints during the 2018 season, tearing an Achilles tendon in his first practice with the team.

  1. Spoil an offseason with several good moves and upgrades to add known headcases who will do nothing but harm their young QB’s development.
    Why?

  2. Dez Bryant: was he fiery on the sideline? Yes. Was a cancer on his team? Only IF you mean someone demanding the best of everyone, even the QB and OC.

    Never understood why Dallas let him go.

  3. Didn’t know Dez Bryant was still even an option for a team. Kinda forgot about that guy. Looks like the NFL might have too

  4. “One impediment could be the unresolved civil lawsuit”…

    Ummmmm, lets not forget how terrible of a person he was to his teams in Pittsburgh & Oakland. I think that speaks more than a pending suspension.

    Which makes me wonder why anyone is even willing to consider signing him. Dallas gave Greg Hardy a second chance and he repaid them by missing meetings and being a total jerk. After one year they decided he wasn’t worth it. My guess is any team that signs AB will find out within a few weeks how big of a mistake that was. Unless AB can somehow proved he is a changed person he’s going to have a hard time finding anyone except the Seahawks interested in him. He just has too much baggage and has shown he plays by his own rules.

  6. dez bryant – fairly young but still washed up. mature guy who has toned down his personality and says the right things. antonio brown, one year older than dez and not washed up at all, still near super human strength and talent that should not be allowed anywhere near your football operation for his own safety and those of others. if bryant returns to the nfl, congrats. if brown returns to the nfl, be afraid be VERY afraid.
