Dez Bryant hints that he will not sign with highest bidder


Releases from the Dallas Cowboys after 8 seasons, majority successful although not much recently, Bryant is rumored to be hoping to get offers from the New York Giants, Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles or the Washington Redskins.

There is, however, a team in the AFC North that is interested and that's the Baltimore Ravens, sources told Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

Not long after being overtly recruited to play in Houston by Texans players DeAndre Hopkins and Tyrann Mathieu, free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant has followed several Texans on Instagram.

SI's Conor Orr listed the Baltimore Ravens among Bryant's likeliest landing spots.

Remaking the Ravens' receiving corps has been a goal of general manager Ozzie Newsome's this offseason.

The Washington Post reports that the Redskins aren't interested in Bryant right now.

The Ravens added Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, but adding another wide receiver has to be on the radar. Most notably, he's fueled rumors that he wants to stay in the NFC East - which would give him the chance to play his old team twice in 2018 - by responding to and retweeting reports that say as much. If that fails, he intends to sign with a team based on need, rather than money.

Bryant has been named to three Pro Bowls, was First-Team All Pro in 2014 and caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season in 16 games. His 12.1 yards per reception was the lowest of his career.
