Cleveland Browns no longer interested in WR Dez Bryant

Oklahoma State v Texas

Former Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant is the top-ranked wideout on many team’s draft boards, and the Lufkin, Texas native has multiple visits lined up.

One of the teams that Bryant was scheduled to visit was the Cleveland Browns, but a source told’s Peter King the visit will no longer take place. Why? The Browns are not interested in Bryant.

He’s no longer on our list,” the source told King. “He’s not visiting us.”

According to King, the Browns would prefer to take players without question marks on their resumes. Bryant’s character has raised a lot of concern and even earned him a spot on the NFL Mocks BUST-O-METER.

It was just over a year ago that the Browns lost interest in Michael Crabtree due to his poor character and concerns about his attitude and in the middle of last season the team parted ways with diva wideout Braylon Edwards.

This could all be a smokescreen, but looking at the Browns history regarding wide receivers this report seems to have merit.

    I am smelling smoke!! No way any teams comes out and flat out denies interest in player… especially a Mike homlgren team………… Thoughts? Browns fans do you agree with the bust-o-meter? Lets talk it out!!

    I’m not so sure this is smoke. Sure, a Mike Holmgren and Eric Mangini team would normally keep things close to the chest, but this might have some merit to it. I doubt either of them have any interest in a guy with as questionable a character as Bryant. Not to mention I doubt the Browns would want to take a wide receiver with the seventh overall pick. For some reason, I just can’t see it.

    Defenatly not smoke. The issues Bryant has are the exact reasons the browns traded Edwards mid season last year. Browns are going deffence in the first maybe o line with a trade down but I doubt it.

    With most teams I would consider this smoke, however, the Browns have stuck to their guns when it comes to receivers and their character issues. This is the exact reason why they passed Michael Crabtree last season, so it would not surprise me to see Bryant get passed over for the same reason.
