Ravens WR Dez Bryant records first catches in NFL game since 2017 vs. Titans

In his third game with the Baltimore Ravens, Dez Bryant finally re-entered the stat sheet in an NFL game for the first time since 2017.

During an overtime loss against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Bryant recorded four catches for 28 yards, including a late fourth-quarter reception that helped set up a game-tying field goal. Bryant led all Baltimore wide receivers in receptions — tight end Mark Andrews had five.

Bryant’s last receptions came in his final game with the Dallas Cowboys, the 2017 regular season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas parted ways with Bryant after the 2017 season, and he would later turn down a contract offer from the Ravens that offseason.

Bryant briefly signed with the New Orleans Saints in 2018, but a torn Achilles prevented him from ever taking the field, delaying his NFL comeback even further.

The Ravens signed Bryant to their practice squad in late October.

During his NFL hiatus, Bryant continued to post videos of his workouts on social media, and proclaimed that he was ready to make his return to the field. Some of those workouts this past offseason included Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott.

From 2010-17, Bryant hauled in 531 catches for 7,459 yards as a member of the Cowboys, plus a team-record 73 receiving touchdowns, a franchise mark he still holds.

The Cowboys are scheduled to play the Ravens in Baltimore on Thursday, Dec. 3.
