BALTIMORE — Ravens players have the day off from camp, but the coaches are continuing to look at talent to fill out the roster.

That includes a former All-Pro Wide Receiver, who relied on a local product to help him get ready.

“He looked really good. He’s very big. He’s huge. He’s physical. His feet look good.”

David Pindell had the chance, few do, to toss passes to an NFL receiver.

He did that Wednesday morning, throwing passes for about two hours to Dez Bryant over at Howard High School in Ellicott City.

Bryant was working out for the Ravens Thursday.

The former Cowboys Pro-Bowler and All-Pro hasn’t played an NFL game since 2017.

He tore his Achilles practicing with the Saints in 2018.

However, Pindell told WMAR2 News, you couldn’t tell anything was wrong with Bryant's mechanics.

“For me it felt like he was still in his prime, 2017 Dez. It was crazy. He made some crazy catches,” said Pindell. “If the Ravens sign him it will be perfect. They’ll be getting a good player, a great person, a good dude and he’ll definitely be impactful.”

Pindell said the two met up after connecting on social media over the past year.

As for Pindell, he said his future is on the gridiron as well.

The 2014 Howard High grad said he's playing in the National Arena League this fall, with the Columbus Lions.
