Report: Browns, Dez Bryant have discussed one-year deal
The Cleveland Browns may be the new frontrunners to land Dez Bryant.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Browns have had initial discussions with Bryant’s camp about a one-year deal that would see him get significant playing time with Josh Gordon sidelined.
If talks go well, Bryant could visit Cleveland to become familiar with the organization, and then sign if that step goes off without a hitch. Bryant is represented by Roc Nation, the same company that represents head coach Hue Jackson, which could help any deal along.
Bryant wouldn’t be playing for a contender if he joins the Browns, but it sounds like he does have a chance at getting the one-year “prove-it” deal he sought in free agency. With Gordon’s status unclear going forward, he’d have the chance to be a big part of the offense and prove that he’s still a quality receiver before hitting free agency again next offseason.
