One team Bryant nearly certainly won't be signing with is the Ravens, and that's because he has already shot them down once.

When asked by Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas (H/T NFL.com) about some of his coveted landing spots earlier this month, Bryant expressed interest in staying in the NFC East, specifically with the New York Giants.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has closed the door on a possible reunion with Dez Bryant, even if the wide receiver were willing to return at a reduced rate. Bryant had been slated to make $12.5 million.

We already knew that these asteroids existed, but for many, these are the most precise measurements of their positions. In 2016, Gaia released some initial results but that was just a tease compared with Wednesday's massive data dump.

One reason the Ravens weren't able to work with a one-year deal was because they needed a multi-year contract to work with their cap space, according to NFL Media. The Ravens have since gone out and signed restricted free agent Willie Snead. In 2017, Bryant had 838 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns. They are waiting to see what happens during the draft until they spend more money on an aging wide receiver rather than a rookie.

One factor that could help Dallas is the lack of need at quarterback with Dak Prescott proving himself in his first two seasons to be an adequate performer at the position.

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. Bryant only wanted a one-year deal.
