As we reported the day of Dez Bryant’s release his immediate reaction to throw the Cowboys under the bus on Twitter and on the NFL Network didn’t help his cause.
Even if what he was saying was true, teams saw it as if Bryant doesn’t get his way he will pout and cause problems. He really wants to play for Giants, but they have no interest in him and they aren’t alone according to PFT.
Bryant has indicated that he cares more about playing for the right team than making the right money, even suggesting that he cares more about staying in the NFC East so he can play the Cowboys twice than anything else. But there may not be many teams willing to sign Bryant for any amount of money.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that there are “far more” teams unwilling to pay Bryant the league minimum salary than there are teams that would consider signing Bryant for any contract.
Bryant could have already signed with the Ravens but turned down the offer of $7 million a year. The Ravens have moved on and now the market for Bryant has dried up.
