Dez Bryant Rumors: WR Turned Down Multiyear Contract Offer from Ravens

Dez Bryant Rumors: WR Turned Down Multiyear Contract Offer from Ravens

Dez Bryant is still on the free agent market and he'll likely remain without a team until after the NFL Draft, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Since the 2011 NFL Draft, there has been at least one wide receiver taken in the top-15 selections. He earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2014 when he caught a career-best 16 touchdowns. Bryant must be pretty confident that he can land a big contract after the draft, because he apparently turned down a lot of money from the Ravens. Bryant turns 30 in November. In fact, these reports state that the Ravens wanted to ink Dez to a multi-year deal for cap space purposes.

The Cowboys also didn't re-sign Brice Butler to a deal this offseason, resulting him leaving in free agency and signing a two-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals.

Customs union debate in Commons on Thursday; Lords voted in support
Peers voted by 348 to 225 in favor of a plan requiring ministers to report on steps to negotiate a continued union last week. The figures show a split between those who voted Leave and those who voted Remain in the referendum.

There were no regrets about waiting until April to make a move on Bryant, Jones said.

If Bryant is indeed looking for a one-year contract, it stands to reason that he'd want to go to a team with a proven quarterback and a need for a starting receiver.

Of course, for that plan to work, Bryant would have to put up impressive numbers in 2018 and there's no guarantee that's going to happen.

After leading the Cowboys in receiving yards in 2016 with 833, he saw his productivity dip in 2017, mustering just 314 yards as opposing defenses started planning for his skillset after his breakout season. Not to mention, Bryant has now gone 22 games without hitting the 100-yard mark.
