    He was close to Novacek so I would assume it was him.

    As much as I love to blame Garrett for his shitty, vanilla offense, it's hard to scheme around a guy who 8 years into his career is still freelancing his routes.
    I'm far from a Dez apologist, but maybe he's freelancing his routes because the plays just suck?

    I wanted a restructure of his contract. I didn't want him gone.

    Rumor has it there were trade offers on the table. I'm digging around now to see if I can find any proof of that.

    This from Archer:

    I wonder why some people believe the Cowboys did Bryant wrong by waiting until April 13 to release him. The Cowboys had designs on making the move on the first day of free agency when they thought they were going to sign Sammy Watkins (who instead went to the Kansas City Chiefs). Had they cut Bryant before that, they would have been ridiculed for doing so without a replacement on hand. They could have cut him after signing Allen Hurns on March 23 but didn't. There were trade discussions regarding Bryant after the Cowboys signed Hurns, but nobody would take on the contract, even for a late-round pick. When it became obvious a trade wouldn't happen, the Cowboys chose to let Bryant go before the offseason program begins Monday.

    I know I have read that the Cowboys at least explored trade possibilities with regards to Dez. I'm not sure why we would have turned anything down if someone actually offered anything.

    Yeah this doesn't make me hate Garrett any more certainly.
