Cowboys Cut Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant is no longer playing for the Dallas Cowboys organization.

According to Sports Day, the Dallas Cowboys announced Friday that Bryant, a wide receiver for the Cowboys, has been released. Bryant, 29, played for the Dallas Cowboys organization for eight seasons.

Following the announcement of his release, Bryant tweeted, telling Cowboys fans that he did not make the decision to leave the organization and that he still has "love" for his Cowboys fans.

"I need you to know this wasn't my decision," Bryant said on Twitter. "I will always have love for y'all."

Jerry Jones, owner of the Cowboys organization, released a statement following Bryant's release, saying that it was in the best interest of the organization.

"This was not an easy decision," Jones said. "It was made based upon doing what we believe is in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys. We arrived at this crossroad collectively with input from several voices within the organization. Ultimately we determined it was time to go in a new direction."

Bryant was expected to meet with Jones today. There is no word yet on where he will land now that his time with the Dallas Cowboys organization has come to an end.
