The Baltimore Ravens are interested in Bryant, according to a report from Jeff Zrebiac of the Baltimore Sun. Even still, Zrebiec reports, those signings didn't spell the end of Baltimore's pursuit of receivers: the team met with Cameron Meredith, who ended up signing with the Saints, and submitted a bid on Allen Hurns, who wound up signing with the Cowboys, ostensibly as a supplement to Bryant. Naturally, attention immediately turned toward where he will play next season. The Dallas Cowboys released him Friday after eight seasons with the team, and he indicated he'd prefer to join a team in the NFC East.

The Ravens were able to sign Michael Crabtree a day after he was released by the Oakland Raiders.

No word of any legit interest in Bryant from the Texans themselves has come out, but it seems Bryant is intrigued enough to follow along several players from one of his old team's biggest rivals. First-round bust Breshad Perriman can't be counted on, and Chris Moore has 25 receptions in two National Football League seasons.

Last season, the 2010 first-round pick out of Oklahoma State finished with 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

Bryant, heading toward his 30th birthday (Nov. 4) and looking like a diminished receiver over the last couple seasons, should see the Ravens as an ideal spot. But as is often the case with wide receivers, ego will probably drive him to another team with a personal desire to stick it to the Cowboys further fostering a bad fit.
