Thanks for the Memories Dez

As a lifelong, devoted, and currently sad Cowboys fan; it is tough seeing your favorite players move on. Today was the day that everyone in Cowboys Nation knew was coming: Dez Bryant being cut by the Dallas Cowboys. Dez was one of the most prolific WRs in Cowboys history on the stat sheet and in his Texas-sized personality.

Just take a peek at where Dez ranks in the most storied and loved franchise in NFL history:

Those stats clearly show that Dez is not a receiver on the decline just yet, but rather he is a receiver looking for a QB to show him some love. The stats of Dez’s career will show that he is an elite WR, and even a top-10 one. The thing is… Dez’s stats clearly go down in the 2016 and 2017 seasons compared to his prolific years of 2011-2014, which had Tony Romo tossing passes to Dez. 2016 and 2017 is when Dak enters the picture and a clear reduction in his production occurs. Take a look below if you don’t believe me.

Dez Bryants’ time in Dallas was sadly coming to an end because the future of the Cowboys is Dak and Elliot, and there’s no room to pay $16M to a second fiddle type of player. Dez is still an elite WR, and this will be shown in the 2018 season.

Farewell Dez Bryant. it’s going to be heart-wrenching watching you throw up the iconic “X” and wear the just as iconic 88 elsewhere.
