The Ravens were that one team that in Bryant after he was cut on April 13. As a matter of fact, Baltimore was so interested in adding the former Cowboys receiver that the team offered him a pretty impressive multi-year deal. According to NFL.com, the Ravens offered Bryant a contract that was comparable to the one that Michael Crabtree signed , meaning the Ravens were offering a three-year deal for roughly $21 million. However, Bryant turned down the contract because he didn't want to sign a multi-year deal.

After Bryant turned down the Baltimore deal, the Ravens quickly Saints receiver Willie Snead, which eliminated any need they had for Bryant.

The Dez Bryant free agency tour hasn't been much of a tour over the past month. Besides the Ravens, there was also some speculation that the Packers might sign him after Jason Witten said , but NFL.com quickly ended that rumor this week. Not to mention, Bryant has already said he doesn't want to play for the Packers, because AKA he's still bitter about that catch that got overturned.
If you're wondering why Bryant hasn't been lighting up the free agent market, it's because he just hasn't been very productive over the past few years. After averaging 13.7 touchdown catches per season from 2012-14, Bryant hasn't even hit the 10-touchdown mark in the three seasons since then. Not to mention, Bryant has now gone 22 games without hitting the 100-yard mark. Any team out there would likely have to design a scheme for him to to make him productive, and right now, it doesn't look like any team is interested in doing that.
If you're interested in where Dez might eventually land, you.
