3 weeks ago49ers Unlikely to Pursue Dez Bryant rotoballer.com
The San Francisco 49ers really like their current wide receiver group and are unlikely to pursue free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant apparently is interested in the Niners, but they don't seem to have much interest in him. The aging veteran led the NFL in drops in 2017 and hasn't posted a 1,000-yard receiving season since 2014. He's still a bid-bodied, physical receiver who can make noise in the red zone, but his best days in real life and in fantasy are behind him. He might have to lowe[...]

2 months agoBills Won't Pursue Dez Bryant rotoballer.com
Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane said the team looked at free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant "on tape," but the team won't pursue him any further. "If we thought that was the right fit for us, we definitely would potentially pursue it," Beane said. The Bills could certainly use some receiving help behind Kelvin Benjamin, but an aging receiver that led the league in drops in 2017 clearly didn't intrigue them enough. Bryant is no longer a [...]
2 months agoCowboys Plan to Draft Courtland Sutton rotoballer.com
The Dallas Cowboys plan on drafting former SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton on Friday. The Cowboys don't pick until 50th overall, so they may need to trade up if they want to make sure they get Sutton in Round 2. Wide receiver is a huge need for Dallas, especially after cutting Dez Bryant and learning that tight end Jason Witten would retire. Allen Hurns sits atop the depth chart for now, with Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley behind him.
2 months agoDez Bryant Turned Down Deal With Ravens rotoballer.com
Free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant turned down a multi-year offer from the Baltimore Ravens because he apparently prefers a one-year, prove-it deal, according to a source. Baltimore wouldn't have been the best landing spot for the aging receiver anyway after they added Michael Crabtree, John Brown and [...]
2 months agoDez Bryant Not Expected To Sign Until After Draft rotoballer.com
Free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant isn't expected to sign with a team until after the draft this weekend. The 29-year-old hasn't really received much interest on the open market since he was released from the Cowboys. It may have something to do with the fact that he's declined in recent seasons and led the NFL in drops in 2017. Still, Bryant has good size and is a physical wideout that can still win one-on-one matchups. He could be an effective red-zone weapon for a receiver-needy team after t[...]
2 months agoCowboys Moving Forward Without Dez Bryant rotoballer.com
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it clear on Tuesday that the team is planning on moving forward without Dez Bryant. The Bryant market has been a bit quieter than expected, but that doesn't mean the Cowboys should be expected to jump in. Bryant has drawn interest from a few teams, with the New York Giants rumors getting the most legs of late, but he has yet to schedule any visits. He and his agent are both likely waiting until after the draft to see where Bryant best fits going forward.
2 months agoRavens Out On Dez Bryant rotoballer.com
The Baltimore Ravens are out on free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant after signing wideout Willie Snead. Bryant led the league in dropped passes last season and has been in a steady decline for the past several years. However, he still has size and experience and could be a good red-zone target for whichever team takes a chance on him. The days of Bryant being an elite fantasy receiver are probably gone, though. Stay tuned for where he lands next.
2 months agoRavens May Be Moving On From Dez Bryant rotoballer.com
With New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent Willie Snead expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, it would essentially end their interest in free-agent wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant never really seemed to be a great fit in the slot for Baltimore to begin with. The aging receiver led the NFL in drops last season and could be angling to work alongside Odell Beckham Jr. in New York so he has a chance to face the Cowboys twice a year. Bryant certainly will no longer be a [...]
