A little over a week ago it was reported that the Baltimore Ravens were "interested" in Dez Bryant, who had previously been released by the Dallas Cowboys following eight years in Big D. At the time, it was unclear if the feeling was mutual, especially since Bryant made it sound like he wanted to play in the NFC East so he could match-up against Dallas twice a season. While that would certainly enrich next season's storylines, it doesn't appear likely to happen:
On Wednesday, it was reported that Baltimore wanted to sign Bryant, but Bryant rejected the team's offer. In fact, these reports state that the Ravens wanted to ink Dez to a multi-year deal for cap space purposes. Unfortunately for them, the three-time Pro Bowler prefers a one-year deal so he can lockdown a bigger contract in free agency next year (he hasn't had more than 1,000 yards since 2014, plus it's already pretty late in the free agency period):
