In order to stay sharp before his Ravens tryout Thursday, three-time Pro-Bowl receiver Dez Bryant got in a tuneup workout with local quarterback David Pindell in Ellicott City.
Bryant, who hasn't played in an NFL game since 2017, is attempting a comeback with a Ravens team that could use outside receiver help. The 31-year-old caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns in his last season with the Cowboys.
While head coach John Harbaugh declined to comment on Bryant's reported workout with the team, a few of his players have spoken highly of the veteran receiver.
“I can only speak to what I’ve seen on film and he’s a great talent,” Orlando Brown Jr. said. “Clearly one of the best to play in a Cowboys uniform. If we do sign him, I’m sure he’s ready to go.”
Pindell was a two-year starter for UConn in 2017 and 2018 and is still hoping for a shot in the NFL.
“I was following him on Instagram and he hit me up about throwing together after he saw one of my workout videos. He actually invited me to Dallas in April to come throw to him, but I wasn’t going on a plane at that time with everything going on with COVID,” Pindell told the Baltimore Sun. “But then I saw on Twitter that he was coming into Baltimore to workout with the Ravens so I figured why not hit him up and see what happens. He got back to me, said he was trying to get his feet wet a little and we met up today."
Stay tuned for updates on Bryant's tryout with the Ravens.
