Dez Bryant‘s representation released a statement following his release from the Cowboys.

“Dez and Jerry Jones met earlier today,” Kim Miale of Roc Nation Sports said, via NFL Media. “He was informed that the Cowboys intend to move in another direction. It is a bittersweet time for Dez because he loved playing for the Dallas Cowboys, but he is looking forward to a fresh start with a new organization. We are currently exploring all options.”

The receiver told Jane Slater of NFL Media he “feels free,” and his motivation will lead him to look at the teams in the NFC East first. A report already has surfaced that Bryant is not on Washington’s radar.

Eagles receivers coach Gunter Brewer coached Bryant while the two were together at Oklahoma State.

  1. Feels free…. I guess that 70 million dollar contract you didn’t live up to was a burden…. Unbelievable

  2. Dez take an incentive laden contract with Philly and play with a capable Qb which you haven’t had since Romo left

  3. Dallas really did Dez a disservice by cutting him now and not a month ago when FA was just starting. Based on them not cutting him early on, I am surprised they didn’t offer him to stay on with reduced salary or a cap friendly extension, full of incentives.

  4. He would be smarter to start looking for a team with a true #1 WR & a legitimate shot at the Superbowl. He’s accomplished nothing & getting VERY long in the tooth.

    Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick…

  5. I would guess that Dez will be choosy. He needs a good year and that requires a good QB. I can’t see him signing with a team that has a second rate QB.

  6. Should have taken the small pay cut and asked for incentives
    to get most of it back. Showed too much pride after not
    living up to the big numbers he signed up for.

    Lev Bell should take heed of this lesson.

  7. I am a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan. With that said, the production just has not been there the last few years. Romo was HORRIBLE becausue he always threw to Dez and had a number of goofy turnovers as a result. Dak is not wired to produce in that manner and that is BEST for the TEAM. Dallas should have kept Brice Butler. The other additions to the WR room and a rookie or 2, will be good for the TEAM.

  8. They didn’t offer him an amended contract because his current skill level makes him not worth the drama/baggage he inevitably causes. Out wrestling DB’s a a great skill. But when it becomes your only skill …

    Reports say that he wasn’t offered the paycut, they brought him in and informed him that he was released.

    Dez would play for a team quarterbacked by my 90-year-old grandmother if there were enough zeroes in the paycheck.

  11. He’s not going to get another $70M fresh start. Any team that signs him better know he’ll whine about money as soon as the season starts and throw more temper tantrums on the sidelines. Everyone is tired of his act. Most teams wouldn’t take him if he played for free.

  12. ” Reports say that he wasn’t offered the paycut, they brought
    him in and informed him that he was released. ”

    True. He wasn’t asked to take a pay cut today.
    But the Cowboys had asked him previously to take less
    in order for his salary to match his production, in order
    to give the team some much needed cap space.

    His pride didn’t allow him to properly consider such a thing
    even after he was advised by many to to do it, including
    by other players in the know. It’s obvious he never believed
    the Cowboys would outright cut him – he thought wrong.

  13. I pray they Texans don’t offer him a contract. He is a cancer and can’t separate from corners and still can’t run a full route tree. If he would commit and not be a distraction he could make a good slot receiver like Larry Fitzgerald did later in his career but we all know that won’t happen. Go to the browns so we never hear about you again Dez

  14. Oh please sign with the Rams, please sign with the Rams.

    Watching Talib, Peters, Suh, and Bryant meltdown as the season falls apart will make for a fun 2018 season. LOL

  15. He was saddled with a poor QB w/Dak Prescott on the Dallas team. That being said, I’m glad the Redskins said they weren’t interested. Maybe he’ll catch on with the team from New York or Philadelphia?

  16. Dez is a baby back, um ,baby. Talent level has dwindled. Like most most receivers, though, he is a primadonna and nothing is ever his fault. I’ll bet that if video showed his coaches telling him to do something 15 times with a consequential threat, he’d whine after the fact about the consequence. Coaches: “you got tackled. STAY DOWN OR THE DEFENSE WILL HIT YOU AGAIN!” Dez: “BUT YOU DONT UNDERSTAND! IM DEZ!” He’d get hit. Then file a lawsuit. (All while streaming live.)

  17. The Truth says:

    Dez take an incentive laden contract with Philly and play with a capable Qb which you haven’t had since Romo left.

    what in God’s name do you have against Dak?, you make a negative comment about him on every single Cowboys thread, even if it doesn’t have anything to do with Dak, you seem to tie it in with him somehow, very sad state of mind you have man!

    Prescott’s stats say otherwise, check them out silly boy…

  19. These comments and blaming Dez Bryant for his own production in just crazy! Dez lost two years during Romo’s injury, Dak had a great rookie year but fell off the cliff last season. The 2015 season Dez had three bad QBs in Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel! Dez can’t throw the football to himself! Last season Dak Prescott Dak was an average QB at best Y/A was 6.8 so he was just dumping the football off on short routes, Dak also had 8 games where he didn’t even throw for 200 yards. So yea blame Dez!
