Dez Bryant indicates he is open to playing for Browns

Dez Bryant

The Cleveland Browns traded wide receiver Corey Coleman to the Buffalo Bills this week, and some have wondered if the move was made to create room for Dez Bryant. If his social media activity is any indication, Bryant might be hoping that is the case.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Monday that the Browns have interest in Bryant but are in a “holding pattern” as the former Dallas Cowboys wideout decides whether or not he wants to visit with the team. ESPN’s Josina Anderson had a similar report on Tuesday, noting that the Browns are skeptical that Bryant would sign with them.

However, a comment Bryant made on Instagram Monday night appeared to indicate he has interest in joining the Browns. When one of his fan pages shared a photoshopped image of Bryant in a Cleveland uniform, he commented, “I don’t look bad in that browns uniform.”

Anderson acknowledged Bryant’s comment but said the feeling within the Browns’ building is that Dez may not be serious.

Bryant is said to be seeking a specific type of contract, and the Browns still have plenty of salary cap space. They also already have a loaded wide receiver group led by Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry, so Bryant could conceivably have a big year in Cleveland if he faced a lot of single coverage. If contending for a championship in 2018 is a priority for him, the Browns don’t really make sense. That said, it doesn’t seem like Bryant has a ton of options at this point.
