Dez Bryant Reportedly Turned Down Baltimore Ravens Deal

Amidst the commotion of the three-day NFL Draft that takes place later this week at the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium, on Friday Amazon will release its behind-the-scenes "All or Nothing" program which follows the Cowboys throughout their eventful 2017 season.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones assured that Dez Bryant will not be returning to the Cowboys next season. And Dallas can save $3.25 million against the cap by cutting ties with Beasley, while it's not as beneficial, cap-wise, to cut the less effective Terrance Williams.

There were no regrets about waiting until April to make a move on Bryant, Jones said.

In six seasons with the Cowboys, Beasley has 254 catches for 2,599 yards and 20 touchdowns. This new top trio replaces the teams' top three wide receivers from last season in terms of receptions, with Mike Wallace and Michael Campanaro having left in free agency and Jeremy Maclin being released. The receiver is apparently willing to wait up to two weeks after the draft before deciding where to go next.

Despite the team's need, this year's wide receiver crop is not as bountiful as prior draft's. The Ravens have since gone out and signed restricted free agent Willie Snead.

According to Ed Werder, the Baltimore Ravens offered the former Pro Bowler a multi-year contract, but he turned it down. Bryant only wanted a one-year deal.

Ian Rapoport followed up by pointing out the reality that the Ravens required a multi-year deal in order to massage it into their cap window.
