Dez Bryant believes he still has some football left in him.

The receiver took to Twitter on Tuesday and announced that he wants to play two more seasons before hanging up his cleats.

The 32-year-old returned to the NFL last season with the Baltimore Ravens after sitting out for two years. Bryant, a first-round selection by the Dallas Cowboys in 2010, was one of the game's more charismatic wideouts over the course of eight seasons. He recorded 531 receptions and 7,459 receiving yards for Dallas, and his 73 touchdown receptions are the most in Cowboys' history.

The receiver also explained his struggles with the Ravens after a 2020 season where he posted just six catches for 47 yards and two touchdowns in six appearances. Bryant credited his poor production due to a lack of preparation since there were no minicamps or organized team activities, and he joined the team midseason.

"I realized quick Baltimore wasn't the place for me," Bryant wrote. "No bad blood. That's their way of doing things, so you gotta respect it."

Bryant initially signed to Baltimore's practice roster in October after working out for the club in August. The Ravens eventually signed him to the 53-man roster in November after twice elevating him from the practice squad.

Despite being given a limited role in Baltimore's offense, Bryant said he's grateful for his brief time with the franchise.

"I enjoyed myself. I met some great teammates, guys I feel like I will be keeping in contact for a long time. I'm thankful for the opportunity Baltimore gave me," he wrote.

The Ravens are expected to upgrade their receiver group in the offseason after producing a league-worst 171.2 yards per game in the regular season.
