The Cowboys have released wide receiver Dez Bryant, weeks after signing wide receiver Allen Hurns.

Dez Bryant probably knows he won't end up with the Giants, but the free-agent wide receiver is still holding out hope. "It motivates me. All it does is motivate me and put this in perspective". Bryant, who had been with the Cowboys since they drafted him in the first round of the 2010 draft, has been to three Pro Bowls, and he's one of the most well-known names in the National Football League wide receiver ranks.

"It shows you, it's a business", Prescott said of the decision.

"I'm sure he's hearing stuff and I'm sure he's getting it from a lot of different ways". "He's a talented guy".

The Ravens have more than $10 million in salary-cap space, so they should have the financial means to make a deal happen if they so desire.

The Ravens were able to sign Michael Crabtree a day after he was released by the Oakland Raiders.

Bryant noted that the fact that Jones did not even broach the subject of a pay cut reinforced his belief that other factors were at play in the decision to cut him loose, particularly with the owner stressing what a hard personal decision it was for him. "I honestly did", said Bryant.

"That further lets me believe what I thought a long time ago". He was a guy that man-to-man you'd go to. His 12.1 yards per reception was the lowest of his career. This would require the team to move players via a trade in order to get anywhere near having the necessary money to acquire the 29-year-old.

Maybe a change of quarterback and environment would do him some good, but it would be unwise to expect a Pro Bowl level player at this point of his career, which is why he won't be paid like one anymore too.

During that spectacular run from 2012-2014, Bryant also averaged 91 receptions and put up at least 1,233 receiving yards in each of the three seasons.
