Ravens Want To Sign Dez Bryant To Bolster Receiver Corps

Because the Giants have the sixth-least amount of cap space in the league and already have a solid receiving corps, bringing in Bryant makes little sense, but the 29-year-old is already envisioning what it would be like to come to NY.

The Ravens are interested in signing the former All-Pro wide receiver as a free agent, The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reported Monday, citing sources. Naturally, attention immediately turned toward where he will play next season.

What isn't clear is if Dez would take his talents to another talent as he's already made it clear that he wants a chance to get revenge on the Cowboys twice a year. The Ravens already have signed receivers Michael Crabtree and John Brown this offseason but they might not be finished adding to quarterback Joe Flacco's arsenal of wideouts.

Jones thanked Bryant for his contributions to the Cowboys over the past eight years but said releasing the veteran wideout was "in the best interest" of the organization.

According to a number of reports, Bryant may have a hard time staying in the NFC East. Chris Mortensen is reporting that none of the three teams are exactly "embracing" bringing Bryant aboard. "Ravens fans, who still lament the fact that the team was unable to land Bryant in the 2010 draft, seem infatuated with the idea". The Ravens are not on the Cowboys' slate this year, and they may not have the cap space (just shy of $10.2 million, via Over The Cap) to pay Bryant along the lines he's probably looking for from a new team. Bryant caught 69 balls for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season. Seeing the Rams quickly become an attractive team for players to join with their increased odds to win the Super Bowl has been truly awesome to witness, but when it comes to Dez Bryant, this is a move that seems unnecessary to even consider.
