Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that he does not regret passing on an offer from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this offseason, even as he remains on the free-agent market.

“Nope not 1 bit and very appreciative for the offer,” Bryant wrote in response to a fan before arguing that media reports about him are trying to tarnish his character.

“For the record me not being signed to a team yet has a lot to do with my personal decisions,” Bryant wrote in a second tweet. “This media is a joke.”

Bryant, 29, has been on the market for more than a month now after being cut by the Cowboys on April 13 after eight seasons with the team. He has been named to three Pro Bowls and left Dallas as the franchise leader in touchdown catches with 73.

NFL Network reported late last month that Bryant turned down a multi-year contract offer from the Ravens and is instead seeking a one-year “prove it” deal that will allow him to wade back into the free-agent market in 2019. His former teammate (and newly-signed Monday Night Football broadcaster) Jason Witten has since said that he thinks Bryant will ultimately wind up with the Green Bay Packers.
