Dez Bryant is reportedly going to be released by the Dallas Cowboys today after seven seasons with the team. The best Cowboys receiver since Michael Irvin will see his tenure in ‘Big D’ come to an end

Following from Adam Schefter and Todd Archer of ESPN.

Bryant’s career with the Cowboys got off to a rough start after he was drafted with the 24th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. He posted his first of three straight 1,000 yard receiving seasons in 2012 and it culminated with a 2014 season where he caught a career-high 16 touchdowns and was named an All-Pro for the first time in his career. This led to a huge contract extension for the wide receiver before the 2015 season started.

The three seasons following his breakout campaign have been filled with ups and downs for Bryant. His 2015 season was cut short to nine games due to a broken foot but he bounced back with a Pro Bowl season in 2016 despite a low statistical output. But a 2017 season all but spelled the end for Dez. For the first time in his career since his rookie year, Dez caught six touchdowns, his lowest total when playing at least 10 games in a season.
