Bryant was released after arriving at the Cowboys team headquarters in Frisco, Texas, and was not offered a pay cut. The move will save the Cowboys a reported $8 million in cap room. He informed Cowboys fans that the decision was not his.
Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn’t my decision.. I will always love y’all… forever Dallas in my heart— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) April 13, 2018
The All-Pro receiver was scheduled to make close to $16.5 million in 2018-19 after signing a 5-year, $70 million contract in 2015. His production, although, had significantly declined, hauling in 69 receptions for only 838 yards and six touchdowns this past season. Bryant has not recorded a 1,000 yard campaign since signing his contract.
After signing Allen Hurns in March, much speculation was had about Bryant’s future. Problems both on and off the field arose and rumors began to swirl of possible trades. Shouting matches with quarterback, Dak Prescott, on the sideline and a multitude of dropped passes cast a negative light on Bryant.
In his eight seasons as a member of the Cowboys, Bryant recorded over 500 receptions for 7,500 yards and is the all-time leader in Cowboys history with 73 touchdown receptions.
