Cowboys release Dez, 'go in a new direction'

From ESPN - April 13, 2018

The Dallas Cowboys have released wide receiver Dez Bryant, team owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday.

"As an organization, we hold Dez Bryant in the highest regard, and we are grateful for his passion, spirit and contributions to this team for the past eight years," Jones said in a statement. "He will always be a valued member of our family."

Bryant was informed of his release after arriving at The Star, the team's headquarters in Frisco, Texas. A source told ESPN's Todd Archer that Bryant, who met with Jones, was not offered a pay cut.

Another source added that Bryant, who reacted to his release on Twitter after the meeting, will not be designated a post-June 1 cut.
