Jerry Jones on Dez Bryant Release: Decision in 'Best Interest' of Cowboys

Jerry Jones on Dez Bryant Release: Decision in 'Best Interest' of Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys, as was inevitable as long as he would not take a pay cut, released Dez Bryant last Friday.

One of the greatest Cowboys to ever play the position shed some light on it during an appearance on NFL Up To The Minute on Monday, referrring to Bryant's comments about how he felt some people inside the locker room wanted him gone.

Burleson went on to say that if he were to land somewhere in the NFC East, he'd prefer to see him on the New York Giants with Odell Beckham, where Bryant would be the No. 2 wide receiver and would therefore draw the coverage from second and third-best defensive backs.

Outside of the NFC East, a look at the rest of Dallas' schedule could point to potential landing spots for Bryant.

There is, however, a team in the AFC North that is interested and that's the Baltimore Ravens, sources told Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

The Pacers shot 45.6 percent from the field and drained 11 of their 28 three point attempts in the contest. The Cavaliers are 16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 home games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

Baltimore has already signed WR Michael Crabtree and John Brown in free agency, but they are still looking to bolster the WR corps to help Joe Flacco get even more weapons on offense.

So far reports have surfaced of more teams not interested in Bryant than interested in him. His departure saves them $8 million in salary cap space. But he missed quite a few games in 2015 and 2016, along with a disappointing 2017, averaging 50 receptions, 678 yards and 6 touchdowns over the last 3 year stretch.

Bryant is a three-time Pro Bowler, but he has not reached 1,000 yards receiving or 10 touchdowns in a season since 2014.

Bryant has always been known as a passionate and outspoken player, a competitor who lets his desire to win be known.
