Dallas Cowboys part ways with Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant

The Dallas Cowboys and receiver Dez Bryant were headed for an inevitable collision course today. Dez Bryant doesn't see it that way.

Despite vowing several times he was "unbothered" about rumors of a possible split from the Cowboys, the three-time Pro Bowl receiver vented about offseason coverage of his potential roster status next season.

Bryant turns 30 years old in November and is coming off three straight seasons with under 1,000 receiving yards. We'll take a look at Bryant's impact fantasy wise once he signs with a new team, but this article is all about who this move helps for the Cowboys current receivers and who you should be looking at now. "He will always be a valued member of our family".

'This was not an easy decision. "It was made based upon doing what we believe is in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys".

Textbook Dez. He's never been one to shy away from telling us how he really feels and his first reaction to the news becoming official shows us vintage Dez hasn't left us yet.

Bryant, 29, joined the franchise as the No. 24 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Since then his best season was this past year, where he recorded 69 catches for 838 yards and 6 touchdowns.

It would be out of character for the Packers to add a character like Bryant - especially after tight end Martellus Bennett's signing went wrong previous year. He's no longer worth almost the $12.5 million he was set to earn this season, never mind accounting for one of the highest cap charges among National Football League receivers.

Bryant also wouldn't command the kind of price tag he was set to earn next year in Dallas. Tight end Jason Witten has 68 career touchdown catches.

"Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn't my decision".

Reportedly close friends, Bryant and Beckham took turns mocking each other in their second career head-to-head game in the latter's 2014 rookie season.

The Cowboys have signed former Jacksonville receiver Allen Hurns and former Chicago WR Deonte Thompson, as well as hosting some high profile pre-Draft visits with receiving talent Christian Kirk, DJ Moore and Calvin Ridley.

Bryant's production has declined to the point where he may no longer be a No. 1 possession receiver, but his ability to find the end zone is unquestioned.
