Dez Bryant May Have Turned Down Multi-Year Offer From The Ravens Because He’s Holding Out For NY Giants
Last month, it was reported by NFL.com’s IaN Rapoport that former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant turned down a pretty significant multiyear offer from the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens needed a multiyear deal to fit Bryant’s number under the salary cap, per Rapoport. The former Cowboys star, conversely, is seeking a one-year contract that will enable him to test the market again in 2019.
In other words, Bryant is banking on a bounce-back year to rehabilitate his league-wide value.
That’s a high-risk approach for a player attempting to reverse the decline phase of his career. The Ravens’ offer was “pretty lucrative,”
Bryant has gone on record to say that he doesn’t regret turning down the Ravens despite lack of interest from other teams from around the league.
