A position of much discussion this offseason has been the wide receiver position and it will continue to grow now with the breaking news with the Dallas Cowboys releasing Dez Bryant.

One of the greatest Cowboys to ever play the position shed some light on it during an appearance on NFL Up To The Minute on Monday, referrring to Bryant's comments about how he felt some people inside the locker room wanted him gone.

The Baltimore Ravens are interested in Bryant, according to a report from Jeff Zrebiac of the Baltimore Sun.

Jones thanked Bryant for his contributions to the Cowboys over the past eight years but said releasing the veteran wideout was "in the best interest" of the organization.

It appears, however, that none of the other teams in the NFC East are interested in acquiring Bryant.

The unbelievable story of Michael Cohen-and Sean Hannity
At issue is exactly who gets to look at Cohen's seized documents and devices before they are turned over to prosecutors. Hannity is an outspoken defender of Trump and is known to communicate frequently with the president.

Baltimore has already signed WR Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, but they are still looking to bolster the WR corps to help Joe Flacco get even more weapons on offense.

Bryant made three Pro Bowls since the Cowboys selected him the first round of the 2010 draft, and he departs Dallas as the team's all-time leader with 73 touchdown receptions.

The Ravens have more than $10 million in salary-cap space, so they should have the financial means to make a deal happen if they so desire.

The Ravens might be able to spare Bryant from a wandering quest for employment by acting quickly on their desires and convincing him Baltimore is a worthy stage for the second act of his National Football League career. However, Bryant's production has dipped sharply in recent seasons-he hasn't topped 900 receiving yards in three years, and he's combined for just 17 TD grabs in that span. Though he's no longer the same player, he still seems to have plenty left in the tank.
