Browns reportedly don't think Dez Bryant is 'seriously interested' in Cleveland
Dez is still looking for a new team after being released by the Cowboys earlier this offseason
The most notable free agent still on the market is former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. The Cowboys' all-time leader in receiving touchdowns, Dez was released in mid-April after eight seasons with the team. The Cowboys felt his contract outstripped his production over the past few seasons and that his personality clashed a bit with some of the other players on the team.
