Dez Bryant is still a free agent. He’s been linked to a few teams this offseason, but nothing has materialized yet.
Might that change soon? It could, considering Bryant says he is starting visits next week.
One team he says he’ll check out is the Cleveland Browns. The Browns have been rumored to be a potential destination for Dez for a few weeks now.
Dez confirmed the upcoming visit on Twitter tonight.
Starting my visits next week…I’m coming to the Land to see you Mr Dorsey

Mr. Dorsey in Dez’s tweet is Cleveland GM John Dorsey, who tonight said he can’t get the 29-year-old receiver to return his phone calls.
#Browns Dorsey says he’d have Dez Bryant in next week “if he returns a phone call. He won’t return any phone calls”..other receivers coming in next week

Dez hasn’t broken the 1,000-yard barrier in four years, and he’ll be 30 in November. There is definitely reason to worry he might be close to finished.
However, he still could probably help a team in the right situation, particularly as a red-zone receiver. He’s still big and physical and can go up and get the football.
It will be interesting to see which other teams Dez visits besides Cleveland. Stay tuned.
