Cowboys cut Dez Bryant in National Football League shakeup

Dez Bryant rants about media but he's'so un bothered

The Cowboys announced Friday that they officially released Bryant, severing ties with one of the productive wide receivers in franchise history. So you've got a couple other teams involved, but it really came down to one team, and that's the Dallas Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys have released wide receiver Dez Bryant, team owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday.

Following the meeting, Jones released a statement, addressing Bryant's release.

"This was not an easy decision".

Bryant's best years are behind him, but if his middle-fingers-in-the-air exit from Dallas is any indication, we're still in store to see his most savage. We arrived at this crossroads collectively with input from several voices within the organization.

After posting sub-standard receiving numbers in each of the last three seasons and averaging a career-low 12.1 yards per catch in 2017, Bryant, who was set to make $12.5 million in salary this season, no longer deserves to be paid like one of the NFL's elite wideouts. The 2014 first-team All Pro selection has failed to top 1000 yards since 2014 and his physical decline has been all to obvious on the field.

The most serious problem was a domestic incident involving his mother in 2012, with Bryant pleading guilty and eventually having the charge dismissed when he stayed out of trouble for a year.

Bryant had signed a 5-year/$70 million deal back in 2015.

In 14 career games vs. NFC East division-rival Washington, Bryant has 67 receptions for 977 yards and eight touchdowns. While Bryant was one of the top receivers in the National Football League not too long ago, his last three seasons with the Cowboys have seen a decline in production due to injuries and offensive scheme.

Shortly after the news, Bryant wrote on Twitter, "let's start the process".

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.

Looking at all the money teams threw at wide receivers during free agency, it indicates Bryant could potentially cash in.

Bryant should have plenty of suitors on the open market, despite his slippage in production last season. He would need to be willing to take a major pay cut in order for New England to be a legitimate option, and he'd nearly certainly receive more lucrative offers from other clubs.
