The Baltimore Ravens are planning to host former Pro Bowl wide receiver Dez Bryant for a workout at some point this week as part of the former star’s battle to get back into the league.

Bryant, who didn’t sign a new contract after leaving the Dallas Cowboys 2018 until November, promptly tore his Achilles tendon after joining the Saints mid-season and hasn’t played in a game since.

The Oklahoma State alum, who made the 2013, 2014, and 2016 Pro Bowls during his time in Dallas, was once considered one of the best wideouts in the entire NFL.

After eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark in three consecutive seasons from 2012 to 2014, Bryant saw his production slowly decline in every season after that and struggled with injury problems.

Still, at only 31 years old Bryant could help a Ravens squad that has one of the youngest and most inexperienced wide receiving units in the league. He could provide a big, experienced target for star quarterback Lamar Jackson as the team looks to push towards its first Super Bowl since 2012.

The team will evaluate Bryant further after his workout and if he does sign with the team, we should know something in the next couple of weeks.
