Dez Bryant Turns Down Multi-Year Deal From Ravens

Bryant is so behind this idea, in fact, that he reportedly turned down a multi-year offer from the Baltimore Ravens.

National Football League reporter Ed Werder reports free agent Dez Bryant turned down a multi-year contract from the Ravens and wants a one-year, prove-it deal.

The Ravens have since moved on, signing Willie Snead from the Saints and adding free agents Michael Crabtree and John Brown to the roster.

"We've already seen the Cowboys cut Dez Bryant, but that doesn't mean they're done making changes at wide receiver".

Police said that after he was arrested, Reinking declined to offer a statement or answer questions, instead requesting a lawyer. A Nashville judge has revoked the bond of a man accused of killing four people at a Waffle House restaurant.

Some media and players had complaints about how late into the offseason the Cowboys released Bryant, as most teams have spent their free-agent budget by April, but Jones isn't giving it a second thought. He wants to sign a one-year deal, instead of a multi-year deal, so he can sign another huge contract in 2019. The Baltimore Ravens were listed as one of Bryant's likely landing spots, according to Sports Illustrated's Monday Morning Quarterback.

It's an interesting strategy for Bryant too. It's unclear if they're interested in giving him a sizable one-year deal.

Bryant isn't expected to sign until after this year's draft, which starts Thursday.

It's quite possible that Baltimore still addresses the wide receiver position in the draft, even if they have a poor history of acquiring talent there via that route. If you're Bryant, it seems like a risky move to turn down that kind of money.
