Will Dez Bryant let vendetta against Cowboys stop move to Ravens?

Dallas released wide receiver Dez Bryant on Friday morning, and in the hours that followed, Bryant made it clear that he wants to sign with a team that can play the Cowboys twice this year.

Releases from the Dallas Cowboys after 8 seasons, a lot of them successful although not much recently, Bryant is rumored to be hoping to get offers from the New York Giants, Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles or the Washington Redskins. Bryant, who had been with the Cowboys since they drafted him in the first round of the 2010 draft, has been to three Pro Bowls, and he's one of the most well-known names in the National Football League wide receiver ranks.

Bryant immediately deflected blame for Dallas' decision to release him, suggesting prominent players were behind it.

Bryant said he was interested in staying in the NFC East-he wanted the opportunity to play the Cowboys twice a year.

Despite his recent struggles, Bryant is one of the team's all-time leading receivers, and he was undoubtedly the Cowboys' No. 1 option in the passing game. "Predictably, the Ravens have interest in him, sources confirmed", Zrebiac reports. The Ravens are not on the Cowboys' slate this year, and they may not have the cap space (just shy of $10.2 million, via Over The Cap) to pay Bryant along the lines he's probably looking for from a new team.

The Ravens have already added a pair of wideouts this offseason, signing ex-Oakland Raider Michael Crabtree to a three-year, $21 million deal and bringing in former Arizona Cardinal John Brown. Bryant caught 69 balls for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.

Maybe a change of quarterback and environment would do him some good, but it would be unwise to expect a Pro Bowl level player at this point of his career, which is why he won't be paid like one anymore too.
