The Dallas Cowboys have regressed this season. There are many factors, as to why the team missed the playoffs one year after going 13-3 in the regular-season.
The team could be moving on without wide receiver Dez Bryant this offseason, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. A few years ago, the team elected to go with Bryant over running back DeMarco Murray.
Now, the Cowboys are going to pick second-year running back Ezekiel Elliott over their 29-year-old wide receiver. It also doesn’t help that Bryant said “hell no” to taking a pay cut recently.
This season has been a disaster for the receiver. He has not had a single game, where he has had more than a 100 receiving yards.
In 15 games, he has 66 receptions for 814 receiving yards and six touchdowns. His best reception game of the season came against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 14th when he had eight receptions.
His best yardage game came against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4 on October 1st when he had 98 yards.
In his last game on Christmas Eve against the Seattle Seahawks, he had just three receptions for 43 yards. After the game, Bryant criticized Prescott’s passing ability, then Prescott said he needs to hit Bryant in the face mask with the ball.
Bryant has had 58 drops in 15 games this season.
He is due $12.5 million next season. He will have a $16.5 million cap hit next season.
However, if they cut Bryant, who has not had a 1,000 yardage season since having 1,320 yards in 2014, will have $8 million in dead cap space.
