Cowboys release Dez Bryant, ending months-long saga

As much as Bryant bleeds Cowboys' blue, it's hard to imagine he'd feel the need to show the same loyalty DeMarcus Ware did after how the front office is now treating him. Thus, Bryant's options appear to be down to three teams: The New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins. But he has big play ability and the one year (2015) he received 100-plus targets, Hurns had 64 receptions, 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Though he hasn't done so since the conclusion of the 2012 season, Bryant returned at least 12 punts in each of his first three seasons, taking two to the house as a rookie. Some may argue that Bryant isn't a fit on Sean McDermott's team, but ESPN could see the receiver landing in Buffalo. This following the Pro Bowl receiver's third straight season posting disappointing numbers.

The performances provided Bryant with multiple opportunities and plenty of camera time to continue his imitation.

Every time a high-profile player is released, you'll see fans clamoring for their team to sign him on social media.

But Bryant still figures to attract interest from around the NFL. Jerry, in a statement about the release, said he and Dez have "a personal and professional relationship that is very strong, and he is one of just a handful of players with whom I have become that close to over the past 30 years".

And unlike Dez Bryant, DeMarco Murray didn't come to town with off-the-field concerns. However, he still offers the talents of one of the best wide receivers in the league when thrown to. Another fun place for Bryant to play would be Carolina with Cam Newton, as the Panthers need some help bolstering their receiving corps. Both contracts expire after the 2018 season and those two players are what holds down the defensive line. They've already spent more than they wanted this offseason - while moving aggressively to get Cordy Glenn, a departure from their normally reactionary ways. Now they'll have to answer it without their top receiver.

Dez Bryant is on the market. And the folks in the room shouldn't hate him at all. He could have some good years left in him, if his head is right.

Today, Bryant let the past die. More so, I think the Packers would take an 800-yard season from their No. 2 receiver at this point.
