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.
