The Dallas Cowboys have officially released wide receiver Dez Bryant today after he met with owner Jerry Jones, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Cowboys expected to release WR Dev Bryant today, barring an unexpected last-minute change of heart, per @toddarcher and me. But the plan going into meeting that is now underway was to part ways with Bryant.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 13, 2018
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.
Bryant caught 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.Back to the Dallas Cowboys Newsfeed
