Boys that went fast, after eight years wearing the Cowboys 88 jersey, Dallas releases the pride of Lufkin Dez Bryant on Friday morning. Bryant's highest receiving totals during that span came previous year when he caught 69 passes for 838 yards. Here are my top 5 teams Bryant will sign with.
The release of any big name player typically gets a buzz going within the fan base.
The Houston Texans could also be an interesting option. "They'd like to be able to see if there's a chance that he could play, not at the expense of a bad deal for Earl Thomas, but I think a deal for Earl Thomas now has to be in the mix".
Bryant, 29, joined the franchise as the No. 24 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. And Bryant is the type of competitor that would relish punishing his former team twice a year. But in many ways, it will be odd to see the Cowboys next season without their longtime No. 1 wideout. While Bryant would be a boost to the depth and talent of the receiving corps, his talents would likely be better used elsewhere.

The group could have been Yvonne's runway to stardom, and it was one that Mavis used to become a national R&B treasure herself. The Staple Singers had a string of Top 40 hits and scored their first No. 1 with "I'll Take You There" in the early 1970s.
The Bills are sorting through some notable issues at both receiver and offensive line as they head into the draft. The problem is Williams had zero touchdown receptions last season and has produced just seven touchdowns the last three years combined.
Bryant wasn't getting the separation that made him great. Garappolo has already shown us what he can do with reasonably unknown receivers, winning all four games he started with the 49ers last season. Would any potential Bryant drama be worth the production he could offer the Jets?There is, as always, the cost consideration.
ESPN.com and USA TODAY have already listed the Packers as a potential landing spot for Bryant, but it's hard to see how the former Cowboy makes much sense past Green Bay's surface need at receiver.
If they play this right, it should also leave them space to add to their fairly weak pass rushers. "I just want to do it that much more". With the departure of WR Jordy Nelson and TE Richard Rodgers, Aaron Rodgers could use a decent set of hands to throw to other than Devante Adams.
Schneider intriguingly said at the NFL league meetings last month that the Seahawks were not talking to Thomas about an extension after having said at the Combine a few weeks earlier that the team was in contact with Thomas' people. Would that bond be strong enough to keep Bryant with the Cowboys when all else seemed to be working against it? Given the recent contract for Richardson, where exactly would Bryant fit? "Ultimately we determined it was time to go in a new direction". I wake up, sleep, breathe football. They have the least cap space of all the teams I mentioned but need him nearly more than any of them. They know. They know. I did it for seven years. Studying to be an Automotive Journalist and with a minor in business. "I'll shoot them a text message and let them know". He was an All-Pro in 2014 with 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns. I asked some of them to be a man about some of the situations a long time ago and they couldn't. "I'm not talking about no player".
