Dez Bryant Apparently Turned Down a Multi-Year Deal

Dez is still a free agent after being released by the Cowboys last month.

He apparently turned down a multi-year contract offer from the Ravens and seeks a one-year “prove it” deal somewhere else, similar to what Alshon Jeffery did with the Birds last year. Baltimore ended up signing ex-Saint Willie Snead to round out a new receiving corps that includes John Brown and Michael Crabtree.

Bryant spent part of yesterday and today responding to Twitter comments regarding his decision, calling out the media in the process.

This was in response to a Pro Football Talk article that claimed Bryant “hasn’t always been known as the easiest player to get along with.” –

A few more comments:

I dunno, I mean, Dez can still play. He’s 29 years old and his production has naturally dropped off a bit, but in an NFL where (alleged) head cases and criminals like Pacman Jones can enjoy relatively long careers, I don’t see Dez being that much of a gamble on a one-year deal, which is apparently what he wants anyway.

For what it’s worth, Schefter says the Ravens were willing to pay Dez $7 million a year. I personally would have accepted the offer.

  1. Dez Bryant has nothing on The Cuz. Cuz makes $10 million a year and an additional $5 in ratings bonuses. The released ratings aren’t accurate. Cuz is #1 in the market and a big star on Fox for his Saturday show.

    1. Really? That’s way more than I thought he got paid. Good for him though. His show is great.

    2. Cuz cant even beat the grandpa on the “other station” as the losers at 97.5 like to call it. They act as if when you mention WIP, listeners will change the channel. But back to the Cuz. Grandpa is out half the year with various medical issues and vacation and yet Cuz with his collection of yes men and update girls cant make a dent in the ratings race.

  2. I would love for Dez to come to the Eagles. He’s a great player, he’s an intense competitor, and a burning desire to prove himself. He will be an mvp candidate this year

  3. I dont know if the media called him out for being greedy or what. But if they did, then he has every right to call them out. He wants a prove it deal. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s a better look for him.

  4. The cuz said it best when he said Dez Bryant is a prima dona and is a “me” guy. Can not win with dez who isn’t a philly or team guy . The Ravens were fortunate he said no
