The Baltimore Ravens intend to sign veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant to their practice squad if his workout goes well and he passes a physical, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Baltimore previously worked out Bryant in the offseason, but he left without a contract.

The three-time Pro Bowler last played in 2017, and he's asked for a chance to return to the field multiple times since, including this offseason.

Bryant inked a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints midway through last season after the Dallas Cowboys released him in April 2018. However, the now 31-year-old tore his Achilles tendon two days after signing, ending his Saints tenure prematurely.

A 2010 first-round pick, Bryant became one of the NFL's best receivers soon after entering the league, racking up over 1,200 receiving yards in three straight campaigns from 2012 to 2014 and 41 touchdowns over that span. The All-Pro led the league with 16 TD receptions in 2014.

With Marquise Brown, Willie Snead, and Miles Boykin currently atop the depth chart, Baltimore has been looking to upgrade the position as it hopes to make a deep playoff run.

The Ravens previously showed interest in Antonio Brown, though the team currently doesn't plan on bringing him in, according to NFL reporter Josina Anderson.
