Dez Bryant Released

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 13th 2:07 PM EDT.

The Dallas Cowboys have released wide receiver Dez Bryant after eight years with the team.

The announcement might come as a surprise to Cowboy fans, and it appears it was a surprise for Dez as well. He arrived at Dallas headquarters and was promptly told he was being released, he was not offered a pay cut to stay with the team. Dez has had a few slow seasons as of late, and hasn't been producing as a top receiver. The Cowboys had a great run game this season with Ezekiel Elliot and are hoping to keep that going.

Bryant is ready to show potential teams what he has to offer, and said the fire inside him has been ignited!
