Dez Bryant explains why he turned down $30M-plus offer from the Ravens

Dez Bryant remains out of the NFL. But, that could be his choice. 

The 30-year-old wide receiver revealed Sunday on Twitter he turned down a “30+ million offer” from the Ravens. 

“I turned down 30+ million from the ravens,” Bryant wrote while responding to a tweet. “all because how I felt and I wasn’t going to disrespect their organization and myself.. I know what I can do if my mind and body is on the right track.” 

Bryant was released by the Cowboys in April 2018. He was a free agent for part of last season before inking a one-year deal with the Saints in early November. 

Bryant, however, never appeared in a game for New Orleans as he tore his Achilles in practice shortly after signing with the team. 

In May, Bryant shared a video of himself running routes and catching passes.

“First time running in a long time… Building confidence,” Bryant captioned the video.

Bryant said on Twitter last month he has “no interest in playing football right now” but is not planning to retire. 

Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowl player, totaled 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys.
