BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Ravens plan to sign veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant to their practice squad, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Bryant, a Lufkin native, was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

In seven years with "America's Team," Bryant racked up the following stats:

  • Played 113 games (started 99 of them)
  • 909 targets
  • 531 receptions
  • 7,459 yards
  • Averaged 14 yards per reception
