Dez Bryant's Meetings With The Cleveland Browns Are Over, No Deal Reached Yet

Dez Bryant gave a candid interview after he was released by the Cowboys.

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was in Cleveland this week to meet with the Browns about potential employment. According to numerous reports, Bryant and the team were not able to come to an agreement on bringing him aboard - at least not yet.

Tom Withers of the AP was the first to report that Bryant's meeting with the Browns concluded without a deal in place. Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network says the door "isn't closed" however.

Bryant supposedly had an offer from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this offseason but turned it down. He expressed interest in the Browns last week on social media during their first preseason game.

Bryant was cut by the Cowboys this offseason in somewhat of a surprise move. He has yet to secure employment in the time since.

Bryant, immediately after being cut by the Cowboys vowed revenge, suggesting he would sign with either the Eagles, Giants or Redskins to stay in the NFC East and play against the Cowboys twice a year. That hasn't exactly worked out.

Cleveland seems like a decent landing spot, especially since the Browns now have Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield at quarterback. But thus far, it doesn't look like a deal has gotten done.

At this point, it's entirely possible Bryant doesn't have a team when the 2018 season kicks off. That's a huge surprise.
