The Baltimore Ravens are interested in Bryant, according to a report from Jeff Zrebiac of the Baltimore Sun. Bryant, who had been with the Cowboys since they drafted him in the first round of the 2010 draft, has been to three Pro Bowls, and he's one of the most well-known names in the National Football League wide receiver ranks. Combined with a large salary-cap number for a player who wasn't producing 1,200-yard, 10-touchdown seasons anymore, Dallas made a decision to cut him loose.

Burleson went on to say that if he were to land somewhere in the NFC East, he'd prefer to see him on the New York Giants with Odell Beckham, where Bryant would be the No. 2 wide receiver and would therefore draw the coverage from second and third-best defensive backs.

"A person familiar with the Redskins' thinking who spoke on condition of anonymity said the team isn't interested in Bryant right now".

Despite Game 1 Dominance, Pacers Believe They Can Play Better
IN took control from the outset, opening a 21-point lead in the first quarter and pushing it to 23 in the third. That experience means the three-time champion isn't anxious about this latest hole that Cleveland is in.

The Ravens have already added a pair of wideouts this offseason, signing ex-Oakland Raider Michael Crabtree to a three-year, $21 million deal and bringing in former Arizona Cardinal John Brown.

Bryant has insinuated that he'd like to join an NFC East team, and it's unclear whether he has interest in signing with the Ravens.

Bryant was released from the Cowboys due to the potential cap hit, which was $17 million last season. He also would've counted $16.5 million against the salary cap.Bryant averaged 91 receptions, 1312 yards and 14 TDs from 2012-2014, but hasn't had a 1,000-yard season or double-digit TDs since then. Though he's no longer the same player, he still seems to have plenty left in the tank.
