Ravens still favored to sign Dez Bryant
For a moment, it appeared as though the Cleveland Browns were going to add another notable wide receiver in Dez Bryant to the roster. However, it seems as though Bryant is back on the market once again.
According to Bookmaker.eu, the Ravens are listed as the favorites to sign Bryant, at +350. (In other words, a $100 bet would yield $350.)
Baltimore being named as the frontrunners to sign Bryant comes as no surprise. They expressed plenty of interest following his release from the Dallas Cowboys. However, the two sides were never able to reach a deal. Coming in after the Ravens are the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, and Green Bay Packers. All of which would undoubtedly make for intriguing options for Bryant.
The three-time Pro-Bowler is hardly the player he was several years ago. Furthermore, concerns about his demeanor on and off the field have seemingly gotten in the way of him signing with a new team. Regardless, there is still no doubt about the potential impact he can have on offense.
This could be why the Ravens are still listed as the favorites to sign Bryant. They have done what they can to add some firepower to their receiving corps with Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead. However, it will hardly be enough to garner the kind of change they want to see in their offense in the 2018 NFL season.
