BREAKING: Cowboys Planning To Release Dez Bryant Today

The Dallas Cowboys have officially released wide receiver Dez Bryant today after he met with owner Jerry Jones, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Dallas had originally planned to keep Bryant for at least one more season but ultimately decided that he wasn't worth the price of his hefty contract. They also did not offer him a pay cut.

According to ESPN's Todd Archer, the Cowboys did not designate him as a post-June 1 cut and will save $8 million against the cap this season.
