Bryant does not regret passing on Ravens
May 16, 2018
By STATS LLC Editorial
Dez Bryant remains a man without a team, but that doesn't mean the free-agent wide receiver regrets turning down the lone reported offer he has received since being released by the Dallas Cowboys.
The Baltimore Ravens extended an offer to Bryant, who was released on April 13 after spending eight seasons with the Cowboys. Baltimore, in turn, eventually signed restricted free agent Willie Snead, formerly of the New Orleans Saints.
When asked on Twitter if he had any regrets about turning down the Ravens, the 29-year-old Bryant responded with the following:
"Nope not 1 bit and very appreciative for the offer. .. what's crazy is how reports like this will try to tarnish someone character.. the slight jab saying it's not easy to get along with. I thought the media would give up by now with betraying me as something that I'm not."
Bryant had a team-leading 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns with Dallas in 2017. The three-time Pro Bowl selection has gone a career-worst 23 regular-season games without a 100-yard performance.
Since signing a five-year, $70 million contract in 2015, Bryant has failed to record a 1,000-yard season or reel in more than eight touchdown receptions in a season.
Bryant was a touchdown machine in the first half of his career with the Cowboys, hauling in 41 scoring passes in a three-season span, capped by a career-high 16 in 2014. He was named a First-Team All-Pro selection that year.
During that spectacular run from 2012-14, Bryant also averaged 91 receptions and put up at least 1,233 receiving yards in each of those seasons.
