DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - It looks as if former Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant may not be starting the 2018 NFL regualr season with a team.

On Monday night, Dez tweeted that he expects to be playing again, but "just might be a lil bit later in the year...we will see."

 Bryant recently visited with the Cleveland Browns, but no deal has materalized for the free agent as of yet. 

His former team, Dallas released Bryant as he was set to earn a $12.5 million base salary and had a $16.5 million cap number for 2018. The Cowboys saved $8 millon against the cap by cutting the wideout. 

Bryant, selected by Dallas in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft, amassed 531 catches for 7,459 yards in his eight-year career with the Cowboys.

The Lufkin native is the club's all-time leader in touchdown receptions (73).
