Dez Bryant implies he won’t be back in Baltimore; says Ravens are first-class organization

NFL: New York Giants at Baltimore Ravens Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

After a short stint in Baltimore, veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant said that he plans to play for two more years, but implied on Twitter that he will not be returning to the Ravens.

Bryant played in six games for Baltimore, catching six passes for 47 yards and two touchdowns. Before signing with the Ravens during the 2020 season, Bryant had not played in an NFL game since 2017. After parting with the Cowboys following the 2017 season, Bryant signed with the Saints but missed the 2018 season after tearing his Achilles tendon. Bryant remained sidelined during the 2019 season as well.

While Bryant made it obvious that he does not plan on returning to Baltimore in 2021, he made sure to show appreciation for the opportunity the organization gave him to resurrect his career.

Bryant will now hit free agency, again hoping that a team will take a chance on the former superstar wideout. At 32-years old, however, Bryant said that he plans to play for two more years before calling it a career.

Bryant further clarified that he had no ill will towards the Ravens, even calling them a first-class organization.

Both Bryant and fellow veteran WR Willie Snead IV are slated to hit free agency in less than a month, which leaves Baltimore without an experienced veteran at the position. It is possible that general manager Eric DeCosta will address the position in free agency, but he could also roll with youth while potentially adding more targets via the draft.
