Ex-Cowboys WR Dez Bryant explains why he's still a free agent

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) yells to another player during warmups before an National Football League game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at FedEx Field in Hyattsville, Maryland.

With Snead, Michael Crabtree and John Brown occupying the top three spots on Baltimore's receiver depth chart, Bryant isn't a logical fit anymore. One fan asked aloud on Twitter whether Bryant regrets taking that offer from the Ravens given the apparent lack of other offers on the table. But Bryant passed, with the prevailing thought being he was looking for a short-term prove-it deal so he could cash in after the 2018 season. He said the media was "betraying" him and called them a "joke".

After his release in April, Bryant expressed an interest in remaining in the NFC East. He played eight seasons in Dallas and finished his time with the Cowboys with a team-record 73 touchdown receptions to go with 531 catches for 7,459 yards in 113 games.

Bryant amassed more than 1,000 yards receiving, with double-digit touchdowns, for three straight seasons from 2012 to 2014. But his production slipped after he signed a five-year, $70 million contract in 2015.
