“Dez has been great he works hard, great attitude. Real passionate guy for the game. Very determined guy. I enjoy being around Dez every single day. I promise you if you ask Dez, it’s not about Dez Bryant, per se. It’s not about any individual. It’s about the team, it’s about the Ravens playing our best football. He’s a part of that and that’s how he looks at it,” John Harbaugh told media personnel on Thursday.
