Dez Bryant is back.

Bryant, the veteran wide receiver who has been on the Ravens’ practice squad, was called up to the active roster today. That makes him eligible to play tomorrow at Indianapolis.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson sang Bryant’s praises this week.

“Oh man, he’s a great route runner, strong hands, he’s dialed into the playbook; he’s always asking me questions about the playbook – stuff like that,” Jackson said. “He wants to compete. I just can’t wait until he gets out there with us on Sundays and fully practices with us.”

Bryant hasn’t played in an NFL game since the end of the 2017 season, so he has three years of rust to knock off. But now Bryant is poised to return to the field.

  1. Awesome!! His desire to come back after tearing his Achilles says a lot about him. Good luck, Dez!!

  2. Gotta give Dez some credit here, the guy has worked hard to get back. I bet Cowboys fans would give anything for a little Romo to Dez right about now

  3. Wow, after TB went low & signed AB, this is a move of desperation 4 a dude that is almost equally a joke in “how not to be a man”

  4. Kaepernick and Reed, take note.

    This is how you get on an NFL roster and not acting like you’re above being a backup or practice squad player

  5. codiablo not sure what that’s supposed to mean but I hope Dez finds success with the ravens.

  6. If he wants the ball he better have “slant right” “slant left” memorized. Step outside those hash marks and you will not be thrown the ball.

    Crazy how Lamar Jackson revolutionized the NFL to the early 1930s or at best steroid Nebraska 1990s era. Now that’s a game changer right there.

  7. Dez had a chance last year to have Brees throw to him and now he will Be blocking for Jackson runs or watching the ball sail over his head.

  8. Now if that toddler Eric Thomas would just join a practice squad and put his best foot forward….he’s see that nothing is given but earned. Good job Dez.

    Huge props to Dez and all the other guys who joined a practice squad to get to where they want to be.

    Paging, Mr Reid, Mr Eric Reid
