Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin said former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant should do everything in his power to sign with a team ahead of the 2018 NFL season.

On Saturday, TMZ Sports provided comments from Irvin after Bryant wrote on Twitter earlier this week he might wait until a "bit later in the year" to sign a contract.

"I do know who's representing him, and I'm just a little bit confused with the direction that they are trying to go here," he said. "... I would tell him to find a team and get on a team. Find a team. Get on a team. Get back to belonging somewhere. Right now, you're like a vagabond where you don't have a team and you're wondering."

Bryant has remained a free agent since Dallas released him in mid-April.

Last week, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported the Cleveland Browns made an offer with a base salary below $5 million, which the wideout declined.

The 29-year-old Oklahoma State product is coming off a 2017 campaign where he tallied 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns. His 12.1 yards per catch represented a new career low.

Bryant racked up at least 88 catches, 1,200 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in three straight seasons starting in 2012. He's failed to match that production over the past three years, though.

OddsShark passed along betting lines for his most likely landing spots, with the Jacksonville Jaguars leading the way:

Saturday marks the deadline for teams to trim their final roster to 53 players for the regular season. It's unclear whether any franchises will amplify their efforts to add a receiver following cut day.

If not, Bryant appears content for the right situation and offer to arise during the campaign, which will likely happen once injuries occur for contending teams.
