Reports surfaced early on Wednesday that former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant would not be signing with a team prior to the 2018 NFL Draft. If you're Bryant, it seems like a risky move to turn down that kind of money.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that the team was not interested in bringing Bryant back. According to Ed Werder, the recently released former Pro Bowler turned down a long-term contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens.More news: Ancelotti talks not about Italy job, says Costacurta

According to NFL.com, Bryant has decided not to sign with anyone until after the draft. "Dallas remade its entire defensive backfield in one fell swoop last offseason, and it's possible that the Bryant-Hurns swap was just the beginning of the team doing the same with its receiver corps".
According to USA Today, the Cowboy made a decision to part ways with Bryant due to his 2017 season and his friction with other teammates. As we now know, the AFC North runners-up subsequently doubled back and signed restricted free agent Willie Snead to an offer sheet after having put him through a workout some weeks ago. Bryant will be much more attractive to teams on a one-year contract as well. In 2017, Bryant had 838 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns.
