For the first time in three years Dez Bryant finally got to throw up his “X” after a touchdown score on Sunday.
On a third-and-eight late in the second quarter, Bryant caught an 11-yard TD pass from Lamar Jackson to put the Ravens ahead 25-0 over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Bryant’s TD reception was his first since Dec. 10, 2017 — 1,106 days ago. Bryant led all wide receivers in TD receptions (73) from 2010-2017.
The celebration continued with his Ravens teammates on the sideline and his emotional moment culminated with a long hug from coach John Harbaugh.
Bryant’s long journey toward that moment began with his surprising release from the Dallas Cowboys after the 2017 season. The nine-year veteran tore his Achilles just days after signing with the New Orleans Saints midway through the following year. The 32-year-old was out of the NFL in 2019.
