3 Teams That Should Sign Dez Bryant if the Ravens Don't
Dez Bryant hasn't played an NFL snap since 2017, as his attempt at returning to the league with the New Orleans Saints was cut short by a torn Achilles tendon. That doesn't mean he's done with football, however, and Bryant is hoping to play in 2020.
He's worked out with the Baltimore Ravens this past week, but that's far from a guarantee that he signs with the reigning AFC North champs.
If the 31-year-old veteran wideout doesn't sign with Baltimore, here are three teams that should sign Dez Bryant.
1. Green Bay Packers
Much has been made of the Green Bay Packers not adding any receiving weapons for Aaron Rodgers this offseason, and the team's WR depth chart is barren behind superstar Davante Adams. Bryant may not have the long-term upside of some of the team's youngsters like Allen Lazard, but this is also a team that should be in win-now mode while Rodgers is still in his prime.
2. Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts have some decent wide receiver depth, but Bryant would bring an interesting dimension to the bunch. T.Y. Hilton is a small wideout, Parris Campbell is a speed threat, and rookie Michael Pittman Jr. is still unproven as a rookie. Bryant could give Philip Rivers a reliable red-zone threat, while also serving as a valuable mentor for the big-bodied Pittman.
3. San Francisco 49ers
Kyle Shanahan is clearly valuing speed and versatility in the San Francisco 49ers' receiving corps, with Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk both fitting the bill. Bryant doesn't fit that mold, but he also wouldn't be an every-down player in the 49ers' run-first offense. He could serve as a solid role player on third downs and in the red zone, where having another threat to take attention away from George Kittle could prove valuable.
