Cowboys release Dez, 'go in a new direction'

Cowboys release Dez, 'go in a new direction'

Dez Bryant is no longer a member of the Dallas Cowboys, as the team released the wide receiver on Friday.

Dez is done in Dallas.

According to Cowboys columnist Mickey Spagnola, Bryant said "I'll see (you) guys twice this year" as he exited the meeting, and a follow-up tweet from Bryant hinted at a possible move to a divisional rival which would put New York Giants, Washington Redskins and Super Bowl winners Philadelphia in play.

Now, Bryant is an unrestricted free-agent. And they don't really have the salary-cap space to afford Bryant right now.

He said he had spoken to Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and BJP president Amit Shah on the subject. The fast was however accompanied with slip ups by the party which had put it on a defensive spot.

It was three years ago that Bryant signed a five-year, $70 million contract with Dallas, agreeing to a guarantee of $45 million. Bryant won the individual matchup by catching eight of 11 targets for 145 yards and two touchdowns, but the Redskins came away with a 38-31 victory.

The New York Giants, who are looking to sign O'Dell Beckham, Jr.to a long-term deal now have around $4.8 million in cap space remaining, according to Over The Cap.

Bryant, who was scheduled to make $12.5 million in 2018 and count $16.5 million against salary cap, let it be known via social media that the Cowboys were responsible for ending his eight-year relationship with the club. Ultimately, it was a clear separation that appears that both had a strong understanding of the standing of the situation moving forward. These next couple of weeks ahead of the draft could become quite intriguing for him as he filters through to decide his next landing spot.

Here's Bryant's career passing line: 1 for 1, with 10 yards and a touchdown.

We'll see wind gusts near 50 miles per hour across the plains and even higher in the foothills and mountains. That's why the Enhanced Risk for severe weather turns into a Slight Risk for severe weather east of HWY 65.

Bryant, 29, joined the franchise as the No. 24 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Even though he's clearly on the decline, Bryant's name-power should be enough to get him a respectable deal that will be out of Carolina's price-range.

Realistically for the Dallas Cowboys unless a trade is made or multiple prospects at the wide receiver position are selected it is going to be tough to replace Bryant in the eyes of the fans or opponents. They've already spent more than they wanted this offseason - while moving aggressively to get Cordy Glenn, a departure from their normally reactionary ways. He was also 17th in the National Football League that season with 16.1 yards per reception, proving he's a big play threat when he's actually getting the ball thrown his way. More so, I think the Packers would take an 800-yard season from their No. 2 receiver at this point.
