REPORT: Dez Bryant Turned Down Offer From The Ravens Because He’s Holding Out For The NY Giants
It’s been over a month since the Dallas Cowboys released long-time wide receiver Dez Bryant from the roster and he wasn’t happy about it. Dez made it fairly clear at the time that he wanted the opportunity to face the Dallas Cowboys twice a year to exact his revenge, which meant he wanted the Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, or New York Giants to call him.
Instead, the Baltimore Ravens came calling and reportedly offered a three-year deal for roughly $21 million, but Dez turned it down. The former Cowboys star reportedly only wanted a 1-year deal, so e could prove himself for one last huge contract.
Here’s what Bryant had to say about it on Twitter:
Nope not 1 bit and very appreciative for the offer. .. what’s crazy is how reports like this will try to tarnish someone character.. the slight jab saying it’s not easy to get along with.
I thought the media would give up by now with betraying me as something that I’m not https://t.co/tF6mKXbXBN

It turns out, it may be something more than just wanting a 1-year deal that Bryant wants. The former all-pro is reportedly holding out hope that the New York Giants will come calling and sign him so he can play alongside Odell Beckham Jr. and get back at the Cowboys.

“Right now, it’s a little bit about revenge,” . “I think he’s holding out to see if New York happens to have a need come training camp, and I have to tell you that selfishly, I’d like to see Dez in this division. Covering the Cowboys as much as I do, because I think that he’d make a matchup that’s already entertaining now that we have Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott, now adding Dez Bryant, and I think you have a very interesting division.”
