Dez Bryant has made a lot of headlines ever since the Dallas Cowboys released him.
That was a long time ago, April 13th to be exact, but nothing has really changed for Dez. He’s still not on a team, and his public lashing out at the Cowboys (shout out Snake Lee) isn’t even a month old. Nevertheless he has his first official meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday.

Dez noted last Thursday (when the Browns and coincidentally the Cowboys had their first preseason games) that he “wouldn’t mind” playing for the team that’s only won one game over the last two seasons. Talk about a ringing endorsement.

Nobody expected the Cowboys all-time leader in receiving touchdowns to be on the market well into the preseason, but nobody predicted that he’d publicly refer to Sean Lee as a snake either, so sometimes you have to roll with the punches. If Dez truly is fine playing for the Browns it seems like the meeting on Thursday could be prosperous for both sides. Hopefully we get to see it on next week’s episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks.
Good luck Dez.
