The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news that you need to know, including the Browns being betting favorites to land Dez Bryant.
Bryant came to Cleveland to visit with the team, and reportedly even brought his agent. But even with his agent in town and staying in town for a second, the two sides never agreed upon a deal.
The Browns reportedly offered less money then what Bryant wanted, which could be a big reason why Bryant is still unsigned.

No one knows what Bryant desires in order to sign him to a deal. He could be willing to take less money to sign with a championship contender, but he could also be waiting for an opportunity for significant playing time.
In today’s featured article, the Browns remain the betting favorite to land Bryant despite Bryant rejecting Cleveland’s contract offer.

"OddsShark shared updated odds from Bet My Bookie, which listed the Browns as the most favored destination for the former Dallas Cowboys pass-catcher at +300 (bet $100 to win $300). The New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks weren’t far behind, although Bryant signing with no team was also a favorable play with the same odds as the Browns:"
The biggest reason as to why the Browns remain the betting favorite for Bryant’s services is because Cleveland is the only team that has shown any sort of interest in the wide receiver. Unless things were to change in the coming days or weeks, it almost seems like it’s Cleveland or bust for Bryant if he wants to play an entire 2018 season.
Entering training camp, there were a lot of expectations as to how the Browns’ cornerback depth chart was going to be figured out. But with the regular season right around the corner, the cornerback depth chart ended in one of the most surprising ways possible.
"Coach Hue Jackson said he’ll rest his starters in the preseason finale Thursday to get them to the Steelers game Sept. 9 healthy, and that Mayfield could possibly play a half."
It is not a surprise at all that the Browns will not be playing most of his starters for the final preseason game. But with an offensive line full of backups, Jackson better make sure that Mayfield is not getting hit that often and risk some sort of injury in the last preseason game.
Since the Browns lack quality depth on the interior of the offensive line, they could look at potentially adding a depth guard that has starting experience. But would it make sense with roster cuts only days away?
