Browns Considering Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant is on the Browns’ radar. Bryant has been discussed as a potential signing by team brass, Browns GM John Dorsey told reporters (Twitter link via Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer).

Dorsey says that he watched Bryant work out and came away impressed by his talent and passion for the game. With uncertainty surrounding Josh Gordon‘s wellbeing and availability for this season, the Browns could turn to the biggest free agent wide receiver left on the market.

Bryant, 29, hasn’t topped 1,000 yards receiving since 2014 and his 12.1 yards per reception in 2017 was the lowest average of his career. But, he can still post up opposing defensive backs near the end zone, and he has some extra motivation to get back to his old form. From 2012-2014, Bryant averaged 91 catches for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Cowboys. The Browns would be satisfied with even 75% of that stat line on reasonably-priced one-year deal.

The Browns signed Jarvis Landry this offseason, giving them one of the game’s best wide receivers. Gordon, former first-round pick Corey Coleman, Ricardo Louis, and fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway round out the club’s top five.

      This would be tight he would definitely would help establish a winning culture there

      At this point I’m sure he’s just hoping to join a team if they’ll take him.

      Browns offense is going to be above average this year. Lots of weapons with or without Bryant. Not going to stop anyone on defense, but they’re will be a lot of stereotypical AFC North games ending 48-45.

        I actually think their defense should be fine this year too. The front 7 is already solid, and they made a ton of moves to rework the secondary.

    With him this team will win the division, because Pittsburgh is old and washed up same with Baltimore, and quite frankly Cincinnati just sucks, so it could happen and I called it before anyone jumps on the bandwagon

      Ok. Those brownies with the mysterious ingredient must have been real good!

    With a good defense last year and a so-so offense last year they should’ve won a lot more games than they did a specially Pittsburgh twice, but bad luck and things continued to follow this team last year! Now with tyrod Taylor who doesn’t turnover the ball and does good against defenses like Pittsburgh and Baltimore there offense should be a lot better than they were last year, so that’s why I think they will be the most improved team in AFC and NFL this year! That’s just facts
