This has been in the works for a while. Dez hasn't played in a game since 2017, but he's in shape, motivated, and intends to play in 2020.
Bryant spent eight seasons with the Dallas Cowboys where he played 113 games (including three playoff games) recording 531 receptions, 7459 yards and a Cowboys all-time record 73 receiving touchdowns.
The New Orleans Saints signed Bryant midway through the 2018 season but suffered a torn achilles tendon just two days later. He has not played a snap since but is said to be in excellent shape and ready for a return.
Ravens Quarterback and reigning MVP Lamar Jackson has worked out with other free agent wide receivers in the offseason, including Antonio Brown, and is said to have had some influence on Bryant getting a shot.
The Ravens are looking to rebound in 2020 where they led the league with 14 wins only to lose in the Divisional Round of the Playoffs to the Tennessee Titans.
