Baltimore Ravens Interested in Signing Dez Bryant

The Cowboys will save $8.5 million against the salary cap by parting ways with him, per Spotrac.

A position of much discussion this offseason has been the wide receiver position and it will continue to grow now with the breaking news with the Dallas Cowboys releasing Dez Bryant.

The Baltimore Ravens seem like a logical fit for free agent Dez Bryant and the team apparently agrees. Bryant, who had been with the Cowboys since they drafted him in the first round of the 2010 draft, has been to three Pro Bowls, and he's one of the most well-known names in the National Football League wide receiver ranks. The Ravens ultimately traded that pick to the Denver Broncos so they could take quarterback Tim Tebow out of Florida.

Whether or not they can afford him is one question.

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

Baltimore has already signed WR Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, but they are still looking to bolster the WR corps to help Joe Flacco get even more weapons on offense.

Zrebiec notes that it's uncertain if the interest is mutual. He also said he wants to play in the NFC East, in order to play the Cowboys twice, specifically citing how he took the move to cut him personally. If that fails, he intends to sign with a team based on need, rather than money.

Bryant is a three-time Pro Bowler, but he has not reached 1,000 yards receiving or 10 touchdowns in a season since 2014. His 12.1 yards per reception was the lowest of his career.
