While on the radio yesterday, Dallas Cowboys scouting chief Will McClay spilled the beans on why the Dallas Cowboys cut Dez Bryant, even though he technically should be in his prime.
Cowboys scouting chief Will McClay essentially admitted Bryant’s play didn’t match the $12.5 million base and $16.5 million salary cap number Bryant’s contract called for in 2018. Bryant has not had a 1,000-yard season since 2014, and he has gone 23 games without a 100-yard game.
It was a collective deal,” McClay said in a radio appearance with ESPN 103.3 FM . “The (inability) to win one-on-one, to win down field. There was inconsistency as well as some huge things in his play. So what’s best moving forward for Dez Bryant the Cowboys, we just made that decision. It’s a production-based business.”
Apparently Bryant is no longer the same player he was when they signed him to a five-year, $70 million contract in the 2015 offseason. That really wasn’t that long ago. What happened to Dez, there’s no way he could have fallen off that far, that fast
Get ready for Dez to be angry, and play with even more of a chip on his shoulder. I really hope he goes to any team that plays the Cowboys twice a year. That would be appointment television.
