Dez Bryant is getting a workout in Baltimore, but not a job offer.

Bryant worked out for the Ravens today but is expected to leave without a contract, according to NFL Network.

It’s no surprise that the Ravens aren’t exactly eager to sign Bryant, as he hasn’t played in an NFL game since the end of the 2017 season. But by working out, he at least gets the opportunity to show the Ravens what he can do, and hope they’ll give him a call if they find themselves needing a receiver down the road.

Once among the NFL’s best receivers during his time with the Cowboys, Bryant’s production had started to tail off by the time they cut him after the 2017 season. He signed with the Saints during the 2018 season but tore his Achilles tendon during his first practice. He was out of the NFL in 2019.

  1. A young quarterback like this doesn’t need to hear how this wide receiver was open on every single play in the huddle, pass on him, you have Myles Boykin already

  2. Bryant’s production had started to tail off by the time they cut him after the 2017 season.

    So what makes anyone think he’ll be any better than he was in 2017? He’s two years older and had an achilles injury. If he’s considered an improvement at the WR position then that doesn’t say much about their current crop of WRs.

  3. Not excited. Ravens have a fun young group of TE’s and WR’s up and coming- Hollywood Brown, Mark Andrews, Myles Boykin, etc. They need guidance, but Dez isn’t the answer.

  4. Dez Bryant needs to play on a veterans minimum deal if he ever hopes of returning to the NFL.

  5. I hope Eric brought him in just to troll him for when he turned down an offer years ago

  6. He’s a bench WR who doesn’t play special teams. Of course no one’s going to take him.

  7. He is quickly becoming the new Terrell Owens (without the HoF credentials). How sad that blew all his money and didn’t plan for a life after he no longer had any chance to ever play professionally again.

    Dez isn’t a problem in the locker room like TO. He was cut because he performance dropped off and no longer justified his contract. He made some accusations as he departed but while he was a Cowboy he wasn’t any more of a prima donna than other number 1 WRs.

  9. Dez might as well just retire. His performance was declining his last several years that he played. This was BEFORE the major achilles tendon injury. His route running was never good. Plus his ranting and raving on the sidelines at teammates was not the conduct of a “team” player. I hope he saved his money but would not be surprised if he was broke when he hit 40 or 50 years of age.

  10. Kinda ironic the Ravens not signing him after they were the only team that offered him a decent contract after being released in Dallas, Turned down a 3 yr deal to pursue a 1 yr prove it deal then the injury in New Orleans all but ended any hope of even a 1 yr deal that he would gladly take today..

    Time to move on to real life Dez and new beginnings, hope you were smart with the money you made

  11. If you’ve seen his Instagram post he looks slow as a slug. I almost lost interest and kept scrolling before he finished his 30 second post route, that’s how bad it was. QB would have been sacked 3 times over.

  12. Wouldn’t be surprised if we(giants)try to bring him due to his familiarity with Garrett’s system, but Danny dimes doesn’t need the mouth constantly barking at about how he’s open on every play.

    We still doing this?

    Hey, PFT is still talking about Kaepernick being unemployed, so why not Dez?

    Personally, as a Steelers fan, I wouldn’t mind seeing Bryant sign with the Ravens or Mighty Bengals. We need something to bring Baltimore back to the divisional pack, and as a resident of Cincinnati, we need someone to bring back the old days of Chad Whatever-My-Last-Name-Is-This-Year for entertainment purposes.
