Dez Bryant: 'Everything is still up in the air'

It took a few days, but Dez Bryant has finally received interest from another team that would love to bring him aboard.

Releases from the Dallas Cowboys after 8 seasons, majority successful although not much recently, Bryant is rumored to be hoping to get offers from the New York Giants, Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles or the Washington Redskins. Even still, Zrebiec reports, those signings didn't spell the end of Baltimore's pursuit of receivers: the team met with Cameron Meredith, who ended up signing with the Saints, and submitted a bid on Allen Hurns, who wound up signing with the Cowboys, ostensibly as a supplement to Bryant.

Since it was announced last week that the Dallas Cowboys had made a decision to release him, Dez Bryant has been chronicling his first experience with free agency on Twitter.

In the 2010 National Football League draft, the Cowboys traded three spots ahead of the Ravens to take Bryant.

Spotrac estimates Bryant's market value at around $9.4 million, but suggests it's "very possible" Bryant's deal ends up looking like the one Crabtree signed last month.

The Ravens were interested in drafting Bryant out of Oklahoma State in 2010, but he was taken with the 24th pick by the Cowboys ahead of Baltimore at No. 25. Most notably, he's fueled rumors that he wants to stay in the NFC East - which would give him the chance to play his old team twice in 2018 - by responding to and retweeting reports that say as much. The Ravens already have signed receivers Michael Crabtree and John Brown this offseason but they might not be finished adding to quarterback Joe Flacco's arsenal of wideouts.

The Ravens have more than $10 million in salary-cap space, so they should have the financial means to make a deal happen if they so desire. This has given him the opportunity to filter through his options to find the best fit for him in the next chapter of his career.
