Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has had a harder time than most would have imagined finding work, but it looks like he may have found his next employer. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Bryant to the Cleveland Browns could be a "match."
Bryant and the Browns reportedly have mutual interest and a visit should be coming early next week. There's no timetable on a potential deal signing. Bryant would be joining a team that has Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield as its quarterbacks.
Bryant, once one of the best wideouts in the game, was cut by the Cowboys this offseason. He vowed to take revenge by joining a team in the NFC East, but thus far, the Giants, Redskins and Eagles haven't shown any interest.
Cleveland is coming off of an 0-16 season and might have an issue with star wide receiver Josh Gordon, who is currently absent from training camp as part of an "overall health and treatment plan."
The move would likely make Browns fans wonder even more what's going on with Gordon.
Bryant will turn 30 this season, so in theory, he should have a decent amount left in the tank. That said, his 2017 numbers (838 receiving yards, six touchdowns) are way down from a few years ago.
At some point, a team will sign Bryant. If it's the Browns, he'll be part of what the franchise hopes is a major rebuilding year.
