    All the radio stations I've heard talk about it today are talking as if it's a done deal he is gone. Barring some sort of Jerry emotional pang. If so, sucks it couldn't have been worked out. Another one whose uniform I have gone damnit.

    The only thing that gives me pause is the emotional showdown with Jones.

    We will see where Bryant is coming from. Honestly, Jerry has shown him infinite patience.

    I have no problem with the strategy of asking him to take a pay cut and then releasing him if he doesn't.

    What I do have a problem with is making it clear as fucking day to the rest of the league that we're going WR in the first 2-3 rounds. I also would prefer that they let the draft fall how it's going to fall, and if the value is at WR at 19 or 50 or what have you, then go to Bryant asking for a pay cut, if the draft doesn't fall that way you aren't boxing yourself into a corner having to take a WR.

    Well, it is too late if he is a cut. You know damn good and well WR goes right to the top and they might even force it.

    This is just the wrong year to have to do that.

    I can't believe I am defending keeping him, but sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.

    Yea, I have no issue with taking DJ Moore at 19, with Anthony Miller, Chark, Washington, or Sutton at 50, or someone like DaeSean Hamilton, Pettis or Gallup in the 3rd. I'm not love with Ridley at 19 really but I'd be ok with that too.

    I'd be fine with any of those picks, and then dropping Dez, but it is idiotic for them to box themselves into a corner and then force a pick, even if it is a pretty deep crop on Day 2. And they damn well better not even think about trading up for Ridley in the 1st.

    You better believe they're gonna force it. Pick #19 is gonna be a WR, and none of these guys are blue chips. As you said, its a bad year to put yourself in a situation like this.

    Even if I knew I was cutting Dez I'd wait until after the draft. Why not? Draft day trades happen some times. Hell maybe someone gets desperate and is willing to trade anything for Dez Bryant. And if not there is no harm. You can still draft the WR's you want and cut Dez after. There just really isn't a benefit to cutting Dez now. If you were going to do that why didn't you cut him at the beginning of free agency when you could have used the money to actually do something?

    As in sign Watkins, whom they made a play for but had no money to compete.

    Yeah pretty much. And if not Watkins there were other options. Maybe over priced options but still cheaper than 12 mil a year.

    Or used the money on a LBer or NT or safety. So that you have less needs heading into the draft.
