Dez Bryant says he'll visit the Cleveland Browns

Since he was cut from the Dallas Cowboys, rumors have flown about where wide receiver Dez Bryant will end up this fall.

The Cleveland Browns have been at the front of that list in recent weeks, too, but it’s been very unclear as to whether a deal will get done — or even if there’s mutual interest there.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Browns are finally ready to bring in Bryant for a visit next week, likely in hopes of locking down a deal. Bryant, though, apparently won’t return any calls from Browns general manager John Dorsey.


“Maybe he’s still thinking about other stuff,” Dorsey told Cleveland.com.

Bryant confirmed on Twitter on Thursday, though, that he has interest in playing for Cleveland this season.


“I wouldn’t mind playing for the Browns,” Bryant tweeted. “I just want to be right first.”

Midway through the second quarter of the Browns’ preseason game against the New York Giants on Thursday night — and shortly after an impressive touchdown drive led by rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield — Bryant tweeted out that he will officially visit the Browns next week.


“Starting my visits next week,” Bryant tweeted. “I’m coming to the Land to see you Mr. Dorsey.”

It’s getting late for Dez

It seems, though, that Bryant is starting to run out of time to land with a team. Training camps across the league are in full swing, and the first week of the regular season is less than one month away.

However, Bryant tweeted Thursday that he is still planning to play for a team this season — just that he’s going to do it on his schedule.


“I’m going to play … just whenever I get ready,” Bryant tweeted. “… I’m not on anybody time … I’m still getting myself ready … if you disagree go to hell.”

Bryant, who played his first eight seasons in the NFL with the Cowboys, caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season in Dallas.
