Dez Bryant: Waiting to sign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant likely will wait until after the 2018 NFL Draft to sign with a team, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Cowboys released Bryant on April 13, at which point most teams had already used up the majority of their cap space set aside for veteran acquisitions. The Ravens showed strong initial interest in Bryant, but their quick pivot to Willie Snead suggests the feeling wasn't mutual. The 29-year-old wideout hasn't minced words about his preference to stay in the NFC East, with New York seemingly his preferred destination. The Giants did release Brandon Marshall (ankle) last week in a move that cleared $5.2 million off their books, but the team still has a tight cap situation. Bryant might only be the third or fourth option in the passing game if he were to ultimately get his wish, as the Giants will bring back receivers Odell Beckham (ankle) and Sterling Shepard as well as tight end Evan Engram. Bryant is hoping to sign a one-year contract, which would allow him to hit the open market again next March, per freelance NFL reporter Ed Werder.

Dez Bryant: Not headed to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant is unlikely to draw interest from the Ravens after the team signed Willie Snead to an offer sheet, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

Baltimore's decision to sign Snead can also be taken as a sign that Bryant wasn't responding to the team's initial interest after he was released by the Cowboys on April 13. The 29-year-old wideout has been pretty clear that he prefers to stay in the NFC East, where he'd have the opportunity to face his former team twice per season. Bryant sounded particularly excited by the prospect of joining the Giants, a team that recently released Brandon Marshall in a move that cleared up approximately $5.2 million of cap space. The Giants still have a tight cap situation as well as an impressive stash of young pass-catching talent, but it's not hard to see how Bryant could fit in alongside Odell Beckham, Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard, with the latter likely manning the slot in three-wide formations. Bryant may need to wait until after the draft, at which point it will be evident which teams truly have a need at wide receiver.

Dez Bryant: Interested in Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant sounded excited about the idea of playing for the Giants in an interview with Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, NFL.com's Kevin Patra reports.

Bryant has been clear about his preference to stay in the NFC East, where he'd get to face his former team twice per season. The Eagles and Redskins appear set at wide receiver, but the Giants would have an opening -- along with an extra $5.1 million in cap space -- if they were to release 34-year-old Brandon Marshall (ankle). However, there hasn't been any indication the interest is mutual, as the Giants might simply prefer to discuss a pay cut with Marshall. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Baltimore has displayed the most interest in Bryant since he was released by the Cowboys on Friday. Other possible destinations for the 29-year-old wideout include Houston, San Francisco, Green Bay, Buffalo and Arizona, though Bryant probably doesn't want to join a rebuilding team like the Bills or Cardinals, and he dismissed the idea of playing for the Packers. If he's truly set on facing the Cowboys this upcoming season, Bryant could check in with the Panthers, Seahawks, Titans or Colts.

Dez Bryant: Should have options
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant could be a fit with the Bills, Cardinals, Ravens and Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Released by Dallas on Friday, the 29-year-old wideout has hinted at a desire to stay in the NFC East on his twitter account, though there isn't an obvious fit for him in the division. If he's truly set on facing his former team this upcoming season, Bryant could check in with the Texans, Panthers, Seahawks, Titans or Colts, as none of the teams listed above is scheduled to play the Cowboys in 2018. Bryant averaged 50 catches, 678 receiving yards, 5.7 touchdowns and 12.7 games the past three seasons, with injuries playing a major role in 2015 and 2016. While his inefficient 2017 mark of 6.3 yards per target can't be ignored, it's worth noting that Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams (foot) also had poor seasons as part of a Dallas passing attack that struggled to push the ball downfield. Bryant shouldn't have trouble finding teams that view him as a clear starter.

Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Released after meeting with Jones
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant was released Friday by the Cowboys following a brief meeting with team owner Jerry Jones, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Scheduled for a $12.5 million base salary and $16.5 million cap hit both of the next two seasons, Bryant was still paid like an elite wideout after averaging 50 catches, 678 yards, 5.7 touchdowns and 12.7 games the past three seasons. His five-year, $70 million extension from July 2015 turned out to be a colossal bust, with major foot and knee injuries seemingly causing his skills to erode sooner than anyone had expected. Bryant nonetheless figures to draw plenty of interest as a free agent, considering he's only 29 years old and can offer a variety of explanations for his middling performance the past three years. He memorably ripped off three straight seasons with at least 88 catches, 1,233 yards and 12 touchdowns from 2012 to 2014, and he did show signs of regaining his top form in 2016, highlighted by a 9-132-2 receiving line in a playoff loss to the Packers. Offseason addition Allen Hurns profiles as the big winner back in Dallas, where Terrance Williams (foot), Cole Beasley, Deonte Thompson, Ryan Switzer and Noah Brown also will compete for roles, with more help likely on the way after the NFL Draft.
