It's personal - Bryant wants to stay in NFC East after Cowboys release

The 29-year-old receiver was released by Dallas on Friday, ending an eight-year tenure with the team that included three Pro Bowls, 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns.

Bryant said he believes it was hard for team owner Jerry Jones to release him. But Jones says it's in the best interest of the organization. As we noted in last week's draft column, they have been immersed in this year's ho-hum wide receiver class, with access to some of the top talent in 2018.

He hasn't come anywhere close to his three-year run of dominance from 2012-2014 when he put up more than 1,300 in two of those years, and more than 1,200 in the other, while combining for 41 touchdowns in those three seasons.

The Cowboys selected Bryant in the first round (No. 24 overall) of the 2010 draft.

Bryant himself was busy on Twitter in the hours after the news. "I want to get it all the way right". The receiver stopped working out around his teammates and stayed away until he signed a five-year, $70 million contract shortly before training camp began.

"We got Alshon!" Was his response, referring to Alshon Jeffery.

Outright releasing Bryant saves Dallas $8.5 million against the cap while incurring a dead-money charge of $8 million. The Jaguars have ample cap space ($18.6 million) to make a deal with Bryant work. He is a dynamite jump-ball receiver who renders most defenders helpless down near the goal line. "Several input. something I already knew". The Giants likely are not going to add Bryant to a room with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shephard and Brandon Marshall, unless they view Bryant as an upgrade over Marshall at a reduced rate. His outbursts on the sidelines have also been an issue in Dallas whether the team wanted to admit it or not. He said some of the frustration was rooted in the offensive scheme. "He will always be a valued member of our family", Jones said. In the final year of his rookie contract, the Pro Bowl receiver caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and a career-high 16 touchdowns. The speculation about Bryant having to take a pay cut started before last season even ended. He was second in the National Football League with 11 drops last season, according to sportradar.

Additionally, Bryant is going to be 30 this season. Romo was released last offseason and retired.

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

Despite the painful ending, Bryant had nothing but praise for Jerry Jones, saying "he loved me to death and I loved him too". Six-year journeyman Deonte Thompson was another addition.

Bryant had said he did not intend to take a pay cut and the Cowboys, according to a report on the NFL's website, never offered him one.
