Ravens head coach John Harbaugh didn’t have much to say about the possibility of the team signing veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant to their practice squad on Monday.

Harbaugh said the team would make an announcement and “go from there” when asked about the interest in Bryant. The Ravens have not made an announcement, but it appears a deal is done.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Bryant has signed with the Ravens.

It’s the first time Bryant has been signed to an NFL club since 2018. That was when he tore his Achilles in practice a couple of days after signing with the Saints.

Bryant’s last game action came with the Cowboys in 2017. He had 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns that season and it remains to be seen if he’ll get a chance to add to his career totals with Baltimore at some point this season.

  1. The plan seems as if they’re getting him into shape for about a month, then he may be on the active roster, come December.

  2. keep grinding man, at this point if you come back and just get one more catch it’ll be a triumph of your determination.

  3. If your QB
    -has 0 playoff wins
    -has 57 fumbles
    -is 7-25 vs teams over 500
    -has no heart and no desire to win
    -has started 4-6 in 4 of his first 5 seasons
    -has the IQ of a potato
    -has less playoff passing TD’s than Derrick Henry
    Then you’re QB is Carson Wentz

  4. this makes not one bit of sense,,guy hasnt played in 2 yrs,,would think that every spot on practice or roster would be precious

  5. I’m pretty sure he’s in shape but after that injury this is the best way being eased back into football shape is the best move to go. Also eople like jason6271 should save the Twitter stuff for where it belongs – Twitter.

    Sure why? Have you been hanging out with Dez?

  8. So let me get this straight. A guy who hasn’t played in two years, who can’t run routes, who drops the ball all the time, and is an extreme head case makes the Ravens a better? Sounds more like desperation to me.

  9. Hey Kaepernick! Do you see what is happening here? This is how someone who hasn’t played for multiple seasons gets back in the league. I’ll be pulling for Dez, it seems like he actually wants it.

  10. Odd signing to say the least. Old, slow and hasn’t played in two years. Surely a quality younger receiver is available..

  11. Your WRs aren’t the problem with your passing game, but hey, he’s going to redefine the QB position or something.

  12. he was washed in 2017, but yes give him a shot boys lol…if dez makes your roster after 2 full seasons off after falling of of cliff skill wise you don’t have a hope in hell come playoff time

  13. He’s coming to be the fall guy for Lamar when the Ravens are one and done again this year in the playoffs

  14. People acting like this is some major move. He’s on the practice squad people. Kudos to Dez to be willing to humble himself from the career he had to join the practice squad. He gave himself a chance. That’s all he wanted.

    Plus I want to point out we’re talking more about Dez to the practice squad than Yannick Ngakoue to the defense. The latter being far more important.

  15. While I have never liked the Ravens because of the Ray Lewis thing, I always viewed them as a pretty strong organization. Until now. This move makes no sense.
