Dallas Cowboys Release WR Dez Bryant

The Dallas Cowboys have released WR Dez Bryant after 8 years. Dez was the 24th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft - Demaryius Thomas was the only WR drafted ahead of him. Bryant's 73 receiving touchdowns leads all WRs since the 2010 season and only Rob Gronkowski (76) has more.

That being said, 41 of his TDs came in a three year period between 2012 and 2014 - more than 56% of his scores. He has caught 17 touchdowns in the last three years, which is still top 20 at his position and the same as Julio Jones. However, he has a 50% catch rate and is averaging less than 7 yards per target.
