Dez Bryant was released by the Dallas Cowboys in mid-April after eight seasons with the team, and one month later the wide receiver is still looking for work.
Bryant, 29, reportedly turned down an offer from the Baltimore Ravens. The team reportedly offered a multi-year deal worth an average annual salary of $7 million.
However, Dez reportedly only wanted a one-year deal in that he could prove himself worthy of a larger contract, a deal the Ravens couldn’t swing with cap restrictions.
Bryant, who has been active on Twitter against the media’s reports about his behavior, responded when asked if he regretted not taking the offer.
He does not.
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 https://t.co/tF6mKXbXBN

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network dispelled that rumor though.
We’ll have to wait and see which teams takes a shot on Bryant, though the Washington Redskins make a lot of sense.
