    So why doesn't Witten suffer the same fate as Dez?

    From what I read Witten will count $2.9 million against the cap and they could save $4.7 million if they dump him before June 1.

    With those numbers how do they dump Dez and not Witten?

    1. He's a Garrett Guy and is in the Jones family will & trust.

    2. He was making about half as much as Dez.

    Check with Number 1.

    As for Number 2., he still consumes way too much money for his production. Get rid of Dez and Witten both you're looking at $16 million in cap savings.

    Or, could it be he's a white guy who's sucked up to the organization and never caused any trouble? Is that a reason to keep him?

    JFC, what is up with this Dezathon on NFLN? Is it because he played for Dallas, the cut got so much publicity or do they think he's a first ballot HOFer or something stupid like that? Sheesh. When he was in Dallas, they microanalyzed every mistake he made and now they're promoting him. "Dez Bryant Classics?" Seriously?

    I think it's more about the fact that he wins NFL man of the year every year more-so than that he's white. Being a good employee makes a big difference but Witten's time is coming soon.

    I get that Dez is a bit butthurt, but he has nothing to complain about. He was given a chance when many distanced themselves from him and when he showed signs of being a dumb ass, a security team was hired to babysit him. I think if those 2 things don't happen, Dez never becomes the player he was. He made good money and was given exposure most players don't get. He underutilized his time here commercially as well, because he is not real likeable. Thanks for the years Dez, but sorry you are leaving upset...it is the right move.

    Is it a legitimate question? Maybe not.

    But expressed in terms of pure dollars and cents, Witten's as much of a waste of resources as Dez.

    How many other tight ends are there in the league his age making his money with his production?

    Dez was a pain in the ass, disruptive, etc., etc. No question.

    But Witten has been a progress stopper for the last three or four years. And he could be a progress stopper again this year.

    Again, in pure dollars and cents, having got rid of Dez how does anybody justify keeping Witten?
