Dez Bryant's farewell to Cowboys fans: 'This wasn't my decision'

Dez Bryant is not the answer for Panthers problems at WR

Dez Bryant is not the answer for Panthers problems at WR

The Cowboys released Bryant on Friday, moving on from one of the most successful receivers in the franchise's history.

In another tweet, Bryant added, "Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn't my decision".

Dez Bryant confirmed on Twitter a report that first circulated on Bleacher Report and other sources.

The wide receiver briefly met with owner Jerry Jones on Friday to discuss his future with the team and it ended with him no longer being a part of the club that drafted him in 2010. This wasn't a new issue for the Cowboys, yet they waited until mid-April, a month after free agency started, to meet face-to-face with Bryant.

What will Bryant's market be like?

So with Bryant leaving the Cowboys where will he be throwing up the X in 2018?

The 29-year-old's production has hardly justified his status as one of the highest-paid receivers in the entire league.

Can Bryant rebound to his Pro Bowl level?

From 2012-2014, he had at least 1,200 yards and 12 TDs each season.

If and when the Cowboys release Bryant, it will come after just three years of a five-year, $70 million contract. Bryant could put up career numbers in an offense in which Jones commands so much attention. But in many ways, it will be odd to see the Cowboys next season without their longtime No. 1 wideout.
