According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Bryant is expected to join the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad if he passes a physical. The possibility of this was first reported by NFL reporter Josina Anderson.

Bryant worked out for Baltimore in the offseason, so the Ravens likely know what they’re getting already.

The 31-year-old wide receiver has not played in the NFL since 2017. The practice squad stint is likely meant to get him into game shape. The Ravens’ interest in him goes back nearly three years, and they’ve looked into signing him multiple times. It appears to be finally happening.

The Raiders are hosting the former Cowboys pass rusher, per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com. © Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Irving already has a free-agent visit scheduled. The conditional reinstatement — after an 18-plus-month suspension — allows Irving to make free-agent visits. He is not yet eligible to play, however.
