Browns, Jags Not Interested In Dez Bryant

The Jaguars are unlikely to pursue Dez Bryant, according to Ryan O’Halloran of the Times-Union (on Twitter). Same goes for the Browns, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com hears. 

The Browns seem pretty well set at wide receiver with high-priced acquisition Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon leading the way. Beyond those two, they also have former first-round pick Corey Coleman, athletic ex-Packer Jeff Janis, and others in the mix. Presumably, Bryant is looking for a situation where he would rank no lower than second on a team’s WR depth chart.

The Jaguars would have made a bit more sense for Bryant after losing Allen Robinson to free agency. Still, they have Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief, and Dede Westbrook leading the way. It’s also likely that top exec Tom Coughlin does not see Bryant as a personality fit for his locker room.

While the Jags and Browns are not in on Bryant, other teams are expected to show interest. Late last week, ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter identified the Cardinals, Bills, and Packers as potential fits. The Ravens also reportedly have interest.

    “Tom Coughlin does not see Bryant as a personality fit for his locker room.”

    You always go with the quiet, introverted players like OBJ, right Tom?

          Two years, 2014 and 2015. Of course, Michael Strahan seems to be a very different person from Bryant and Beckham, but no one would ever call him quiet and introverted.

      Maybe his experience with OBJ is the very reason he wants to stay away from Bryant.

    The Browns have done a lot of stupid things… a LOT of stupid things… but I’d like to think that even they aren’t dumb enough to put Dez Bryant and Josh Gordon together.

    At this point what is the benefit in spending money on this guy before teams see how the draft board breaks? I don’t think he’s clearly better than the top WR’s in the draft and it doesn’t seem like a lot of people are fighting to sign him, just a lot of teams “expected to show interest.”
