After weeks upon weeks of anticipation, according to multiple reports the Dallas Cowboys are expected to release star wideout Dez Bryant.

After initial reports indicated that the Cowboys and Bryant were going to negotiate a paycut, the report is now that they will just release him instead.

This comes at an interesting time as most cuts/release decision usually come at the start of free agency. But now the next question will come in to play as how they should go about the release as releasing Dez Bryant would create $8.5M in cap space for the Cowboys. If they designate Bryant a post-June 1 cut, it would create $12.5M in cap space that would be available starting June 2.

Regardless of how the Cowboys finish Bryant’s exit, they’ll now need to add a wideout to their list of needs in this year’s NFL Draft.
