    Released by Cowboys, Dez Bryant wants to stay in NFC East

    FRISCO, Texas -- In a late-morning meeting that lasted approximately 20 minutes, Dex Bryant was told he would be released by owner and general manager Jerry Jones. The Cowboys did not offer Bryant a pay cut and did not designate him a post-June 1 cut.

    He was set to make $12.5 million and count $16.5 million against the cap. With the move, the Cowboys will save $8.5 million against the cap.

    Late last season Bryant said he would not accept a pay cut, but he told the NFL Network that he would have been open to one if it had been offered.

    Bryant's production slipped the past three seasons after signing a five-year, $70 million contract in 2015. He did not record a 1,000-yard season and was slowed by foot and knee injuries. He played in every game last season and had 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns.
