Bryant, who turns 32 on November 4, played his first eight NFL seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, who cut him in April 2018. In the middle of the following regular season, Bryant signed with the New Orleans Saints but tore his Achilles tendon training just two days later and has not played since, although he has said he would like to continue his career.
Only the New York Jets have an average of fewer overtaking places per game than the Ravens this season. Bryant led the NFL in receiving yards in 2012, touchdown catches in 2014, and average yards per receiving in 2016.
NFL teams are allowed to add seasoned players to their practice groups this year to give them more flexibility in the roster amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. Previously, practice grounds were mostly reserved for players with limited NFL experience.
