The Baltimore Ravens are planning to bring in wide receiver Dez Bryant for evaluation, and if they think he's a fit they would sign him to their practice squad, sources confirmed to ESPN's Ed Werder on Thursday.
The report says if all goes well, the Ravens plan to add Bryant to their practice squad. Now, however, it seems like the Ravens are trying to sign Bryant. At 6 feet, 2 inches and 220 pounds, Bryant has a history of offering the type of contested-catch success that Baltimore's offense has lacked through six games this season.
Bryant, 31, is a three-time Pro Bowler, but he hasn't been on a roster since 2018 when he was with the New Orleans Saints. He worked out for the Ravens in August, but no deal materialized between the two sides. However, he turned down a multiyear offer from the team then because he wanted a one-year deal and a chance to prove himself, in hopes of getting a bigger long-term deal in 2019, according to Werder.
Rules the National Football League enacted this season allow teams flexibility to promote practice squad players to the active roster for game days. The former Oklahoma State star was a staple in the Cowboys' passing game for years, but his tenure ran its course after eight years.
Jane Slater of NFL Network reported the Ravens want to see what kind of physical shape Dez is in, as well as his chemistry working with Lamar Jackson.
