Rapoport adds that Cleveland is hopeful to finalize a contract with Leary, so a deal could be coming in the near future.
Leary, 31, wound up signing on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Cowboys before signing a four-year, $36 million contract that included $18.65 million guaranteed with the Broncos in 2017.
Back in February, Denver declined Leary’s fifth-year option for 2020 that would’ve cost them $8.4 million, making him a free agent.
In 2019, Leary appeared in 12 games for the Broncos and made 12 starts for them at guard.
