Cleveland Browns Kicking the Tires on Dez Bryant
Written By ESPN 99.1's Nick Nagel
As a part of his rehab, Cleveland Browns’ Wide Receiver Josh Gordon is currently away from the team.
With Dez Bryant on the market and the Browns not certain on when Gordon will return to the team, the possibility of adding Bryant is becoming more interesting.
The Browns have reportedly had conversations with the former Cowboys record-breaking receiver, but no ‘serious’ talks about a deal have been made.
Brown’s GM John Dorsey likes Dez Bryant and what he can potentially bring to the Cleveland Browns organization.
Dez Bryant was released by the Dallas Cowboys last season after eight years with them.
He tallied 531 receptions, 7,459 yards, and 73 touchdowns in his time with Dallas.
In 2017, he started all 16 games and recorded 69 catches for 838 yards with 6 touchdowns.
Although Josh Gordon is expected to be back by the 2018 season, the addition of Bryant would spark a pretty competitive receiving core along with Gordon, Jarvis Landry, and Corey Coleman.
Posting a 1-31 in the last two seasons, the Browns are desperately looking to turn things around.
The addition of Dez Bryant would be a step in the right direction for Hue Jackson and the Cleveland Browns.
