Cowboys expected to release Dez Bryant, per report

Releasing Dez Bryant was Jerry Jones' First Move To Own the NFL Draft

The Cowboys could release Lufkin native Dez Bryant today, according to an ESPN insider.

The Dallas Cowboys are expected to release star wide receiver Dez Bryant on Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"This was not an easy decision", Jones said in a statement.

And it's Bryant's scoring ability, his rare competitiveness, that we believe will help him find a soft landing outside of Dallas.

The pair were meeting Friday morning at the team's training facility to discuss Bryant's future.

The mercurial Bryant grew a lot - on and off the field - from the 24th overall pick out of Oklahoma State in 2010.

Entering his ninth season, all with Dallas, Bryant has racked up big numbers, including 73 touchdowns and more than 7,000 yards. The Cowboys already have added free-agent receivers Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson this offseason.

The Cowboys will owe Bryant $8 million in dead cap money, but save $8.5 million against the cap for the 2018 season.
