Is Dez Bryant a good fit for the Baltimore Ravens?


Does free agent wideout Dez Bryant make sense for the Baltimore Ravens?

Of course, the Baltimore Ravens have interest in Dez Bryant even after signing Michael Crabtree and John Brown. But the question that I€’m wondering if he’€™s a good fit in Baltimore?

He’€™s had some attitude problems and his play has declined in the past few seasons. It might have been due to Dak Prescott at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn’€™t a fan of players that have large personalities, so it would be intriguing to see how Bryant would fit in the Ravens offensive scheme.

Even more, how would he work alongside with newly-acquired wide receiver Michael Crabtree? Would Bryant be open to playing in the slot as he doesn’t get the separation like he once had before?

It could be enthralling to see the new play-making duo of Crabtree and Bryant as the No. 1 and No. 2 receivers on the Ravens depth chart.

As a result, John Brown could lineup in the slot, making for one dangerous receiving corp. This would set Flacco up with arguably his best receiving corp since entering the NFL in 2008.

The Baltimore Ravens 2018 NFL draft philosophy could change a bit if Bryant does sign with Baltimore.

For example, instead of possibly draft someone like Calvin Ridley in the first-round, the Ravens could target a tight end or add much-needed offensive line depth.

The more time Flacco has in the pocket, the more successful he will be, especially with Crabtree, Brown, and Bryant on the outside.

History has shown the Ravens inability to draft and develop their own receivers, so free agency is their go-to route it seems. If the Ravens end up signing Bryant, Harbaugh, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Flacco will have no excuses for poor offensive play in 2018.
