  • Dez Bryant turned down multi-year deal with Ravens, report says

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones assured that Dez Bryant will not be returning to the Cowboys next season. "An enormous amount of thanks goes out to the Cowboys organization for their cooperation in filming throughout the season".

In releasing Bryant this month, the Cowboys made their bed and will live with it regardless if fans are for or against the decision.

There were no regrets about waiting until April to make a move on Bryant, Jones said. And Dallas can save $3.25 million against the cap by cutting ties with Beasley, while it's not as beneficial, cap-wise, to cut the less effective Terrance Williams.

Bryant amassed more than 1,000 yards receiving, with double-digit touchdowns, for three straight seasons from 2012 to 2014.

Heading into the National Football League draft, Jones believes the team won't be able to find anyone to replace Dez. In fact, just one year ago there were three wideouts taken in the first ten picks.




Dez Bryant is still on the free agent market and he'll likely remain without a team until after the NFL Draft, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Despite the team's need, this year's wide receiver crop is not as bountiful as prior draft's.

Bryant has expressed interest in playing for another NFC East team, including the New York Giants.

After Bryant turned down the offer, the Ravens signed receiver Willie Snead. He wants to sign a one-year deal, instead of a multi-year deal, so he can sign another huge contract in 2019.

The Cowboys also didn't re-sign Brice Butler to a deal this offseason, resulting him leaving in free agency and signing a two-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals.
