Dez Bryant Turned Down Multi-Year Offer From Ravens

Is Taven Bryan good enough to make Cowboys go extra deep at 3-tech

Bryant is seeking a lucrative one-year deal in order to get back on the market in 2019 as he hopes to prove himself again. But, as we know, things can change in the NFL. The Cowboys saved $8.5 million against the cap by cutting him.

Dez Byrant had the opportunity to become a Raven, but he apparently decided against it. That's not ideal in late April, when most of the free-agent shopping has been done. Baltimore wanted him, Bryant wasn't ready to commit.

When asked by Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas (H/T NFL.com) about some of his coveted landing spots earlier this month, Bryant expressed interest in staying in the NFC East, specifically with the New York Giants. There have already been reports that Bryant will wait until after the upcoming draft this week to make his decision on where he will sign as teams will have a better sense of what they need at the wide receiver position.

So why would Bryant pass on a potential three-year deal? He's obviously willing to take that gamble.

Roger Goodell will be joined by former Dallas Cowboys and Hall of Fame quarterbacks Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman on stage Thursday night at the National Football League draft, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com, as well as current Cowboys tight end Jason Witten. The receiver is apparently willing to wait up to two weeks after the draft before deciding where to go next.

Jones also noted that there won't be an immediate replacement for Bryant.
