Dez Bryant may sign with Packers?

On NFL Network's Around The NFL, new analyst Jason Witten said, "I think he's going to end up going to the Green Bay Packers," when asked about his former teammate Dez Bryant.

Fantasy Impact

This is a dream scenario for all parties involved if there's truth to what he's saying. Bryant would give Aaron Rodgers another threat in the red zone, while Rodgers would give Bryant a quarterback who can get the ball into his hands. There's been a lot made about Bryant's inability to gain separation over the last few weeks, but truth be told, Bryant wasn't ever a receiver who was known to be a phenomenal route runner. His best work was done in one-on-one situations where he could bully the defender. Knowing the way Rodgers can place the ball on the back shoulder, it'd be a match made in heaven. Should Bryant land with the Packers, he should be considered a low-end WR2 with upside, as Davante Adams still holds the No. 1 role on the team. We'll continue to update Bryant as we learn more about his potential landing spot.

Dez Bryant turned down multi-year deal with Ravens

Ed Werder is reporting that free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant turned down a multi-year deal with the Ravens, as he seeks a one-year "prove it" deal.

Fantasy Impact

Now we know why the Ravens signed Willie Snead after showing interest in Bryant. It's a bold move by Bryant, but likely a smart one as it opens up the door to more teams looking for a potential one-year player, as well as gives Bryant an opportunity to heal his reputation and get one more contract as an unrestricted free agent in 2019. While some have written of Bryant as "done" and not the same player he once was, we believe he's still got some gas left in the tank. As mentioned previously here, we don't expect him to sign until after the NFL Draft, which is now just hours away. This will allow both him and teams to see what their situation leaves them with and if there's enough opportunity for Bryant to come in and make an impact.

Dez Bryant will not return to Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys beat writer David Helman is reporting the team is not interested in bringing back WR Dez Bryant.

Fantasy Impact

Helman asked Cowboys owner Jerry Jones if there was an interest in bringing back the recently released wideout, but as expected, the tenured owner told the reporter that the team is "planning" on moving forward without him. For Bryant, there has been minimal interest from teams around the league for his services. However, because it is so close to the upcoming NFL Draft, Bryant will likely have to wait until the event concludes and depth charts begin to take shape entering OTAs and minicamp to finally land a new gig. His fantasy stock will continue to suffer as a result making him a prime buy-low candidate. I'd take the chance on him for the right price just in case he lands in a favorable spot like with the Packers or 49ers.

Dez Bryant not part of Ravens plans

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Ravens are no longer going to pursue free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Fantasy Impact

After being announced as one of the teams with interest in Bryant, it should really come as no shock that they aren't going to pursue another veteran receiver after they acquired Willie Snead last week. While it appears their three wide receiver spots are filled with Snead, Michael Crabtree, and John Brown, the Ravens are still going to be drafting a wide receiver in the top three rounds. As for Bryant, his release didn't generate the buzz most thought it would, as teams are likely to find out who they can land in the draft before making an offer to Bryant. As of now, it seems the Giants and Redskins are the two teams he wants to play for.

Dez Bryant officially released

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Cowboys have officially released wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Fantasy Impact

It's now confirmed, so we can start talking about potential landing spots. While we don't know how teams around the league view him (perimeter, slot, mix of the two), our best guess would be with the Seahawks to help fill the red zone void left by Jimmy Graham. There should be plenty of teams who are in the market for his services, though some may consider him a distraction. For those who are using his 2017 as a reason to stay away, we'd advise against that. This move could be the best thing that ever happened for him. Stay tuned for updates on his potential suitor.
