Dez Bryant is coming off a year where he failed to catch 70 balls, or surpass 1,000 yards receiving, but he’ll still command a $12.5 million salary in 2018 with a $16.5 million cap hit. Bryant and the Cowboys are headed for an inevitable showdown where he’ll likely either be forced to take a pay cut or get cut. Not surprisingly, Bryant has been vocally opposed to playing at a discount.
Today in The Herd, Colin discussed the potentially messy brewing divorce, and thinks it’s time for Dallas to sever ties with Bryant and move on. He pointed out that in addition to Dez’s dramatic drop in production, he has also reportedly struggled to co-exist with Dak Prescott. That’s not gonna work.
It may have been worth tolerating his diva behavior when he was producing, but at this point he’s just isn’t worth the headache, even at a discount.
Watch Colin explain why it’s time for the Cowboys to ditch Bryant and build around their talented younger stars.
