Cowboys Release Dez Bryant After 8 Seasons

Meanwhile, the Cowboys have hosted three potential first-round wide receiver prospects for pre-draft visits in Calvin Ridley of Alabama, D.J. Moore of Maryland and Christian Kirk of Texas A&M. Edit headlines. With AP Photos.

Secondly, after being released by the Cowboys, Bryant sent out a tweet that includes Western New York's favorite word.

On March 3, Jerry Jones said at the NFL Combine, "You have asked me as I sit here do you want [Dez Bryant] on the team next year and my answer is yes".

The Cowboys never broached the idea of Bryant taking a pay reduction because they decided the organization (namely, Dak Prescott) was better off without him.

The Dallas Cowboys and Pro Bowl wideout Dez Bryant have officially parted ways after a stormy but highly productive relationship over the years.

The Eagles do not have the kind of money it would likely to take to sign Bryant, not with their backs up against the salary cap with just about $1.6 million to spend, and popular defensive end Brandon Graham sitting there waiting for a well-deserved contract situation.

"This was not an easy decision".

That's right, in what would have been an inconceivable development a few years ago, Bryant has been cut by the Dallas Cowboys after meeting today with owner Jerry Jones.

'We arrived at this crossroad collectively with input from several voices within the organization.

Bryant, who said he would've accepted a pay cut if asked to by Dallas, went on a tweeting spree after the news of his release came down. With a duo of Fitzgerald and Bryant, the Cardinals could make the case that they would have the best receiving pair in the league, and with almost $20 million in cap space, they could afford him.

The Panthers are coming off a promising season that saw them reach the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years.

Bryant hasn't eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving since 2014, but there should be a market for the receiver. But he didn't have a 1,000-yard season in three years under the big contract, and just played all 16 games without a 100-yard day for the first time in his eight-year career during the 2017 season.

Bryant missed a total of 10 games during the 2015 and 2016 seasons with a fracture of the fifth metatarsal and a hairline fracture of the tibial plateau. The 2010 No. 24 overall pick is a three-time Pro Bowler and his 73 career touchdown receptions is the fifth-most among active players. He will always be a valued member of our family.
