Dallas Cowboys: Time for the team and Dez Bryant to Part Ways
When you think of the Dallas Cowboys, you often think of the “Triplets”. Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin graced the team in the 90s. On the current team, they have another set of triplets as well. That consists of Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Dez Bryant. However, it may be time to break this group apart. One of these guys just does not belong. It is about time that the Dallas Cowboys part ways with Dez Bryant.
In Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, Bryant was seen on the sideline throwing a temper tantrum. One can only expect it was because the offense was not getting him the ball. Then, on the first play after the fit, Dez catches the ball and proceeds to carry it loosely and have it stripped. There is no place for this attitude on a football team. Especially one that is fighting for a playoff spot.
This is not the first time that the ‘tude has been seen from Dez Bryant. During his 7 years in the NFL, he has been seen multiple times throwing these fits. The biggest thing is that the staff blows them off. Many times you hear, “Dez is a competitor. You want to see that fire in one of your leaders.” However, Dez is going to explode one too many times and it could happen at the wrong time.[SeanNaylor2Ads]
Thus, if Dez Bryant was truly a leader for the Dallas Cowboys, he would be doing everything he could to help the team win. He would also be proud to block, be a decoy, or even take a play off. Leaders do not complain, they motivate and get involved any way they can.
Hence, it may be time for the Dallas Cowboys to part ways with Dez Bryant. Nonetheless, Dez and the Cowboys will be tough to part ways. Dez has a cap number of $16.5 million. He would also cost the Cowboys $8 million in dead cap money. His savings is $8.5 million. So while it may need to be something to consider, it may not be cost-effective.
While the Dallas Cowboys will not consider this move, I have heard rumblings from their fans that it is time. Dez has stayed his welcome in Big D. Now it may be time for the two to go through the Big D.
