Rapoport was told the sides are angling to schedule a visit, with Monday serving as a potential meeting day, if not sooner.
The X-factor here is Gordon's window for return. League spokesman Brian McCarthy told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero that no timetable exists for the wideout, who was placed earlier this week on the team's non-football injury list after he left the club to address mental health and anxiety issues.
Browns general manager John Dorsey said he "absolutely" expects Gordon to play this season, but it's risky to wait on a player with an ultra-spotty track record of availability.
Bryant isn't the game-changing wideout he once was -- the Cowboys came to that conclusion months ago -- but as Gordon's absence wages on, Dez would serve as a welcome addition in Cleveland.
The wideout also suggested "[expletive] was ... planned to get me out ask [center] Travis [Frederick] and my brother snake Lee I mean [linebacker] Sean Lee."
His Twitter feed includes plenty more where that came from.
