    Cowboys expected to release WR Dev Bryant today, barring an unexpected last-minute change of heart, per @toddarcher and me. But the plan going into meeting that is now underway was to part ways with Bryant.

    He’s been mediocre for 2 years now. Doesn’t surprise me. He’s a shell of his self. Draft Calvin Ridley and they’ll be fine.

    His last elite, full season was in 2014. It's been a while since Dez earned his paycheck.

    He will be picked up by someone. He is on the #1 WR borderline, so if his ego will allow him to go to a team as the #2 WR he should find a new home.

    He won’t have any trouble getting a job. Big receiver, on the right side of 30 years old. Something more than a few teams need.

    #1 is a tough argument. In the last 3 years, 57 receivers have caught more balls than him. He’ll get a job, but will not be a primary role.

    Not a huge Dez fan but I'd take him in Cincy with AJ.

    Apparently he wants to stay in the NFC East. No room for him on the giants unless Brandon Marshall gets cut.

    I don't think be is a shell of his self. The offense shifted a lot the last few years. They became a team focused on running the ball. They also have a qb is more of a conservative qb now than with Romo. Not willing to try to force it in or fit into tight windows as Romo would have. They have a qb who will hand it off or play action and find the TE. Add in injuries and all that has played a part.

    Depending where he ends up and ends up healthy. I can easily see him being a top 10 wr again for the next couple of years.

    I wish the Bengals would cut Lafell and Michael Johnson and try to get Bryant on a 2 year deal.

    With that said he seems like a wr that will end up with the Ravens if he doesn't go back to the nfc East.

    He would want too much money, but I agree.

    If he has the right attitude, he can be a very good #2 for any team.

    I am hoping the Saints can get him.

    Feels like one of the more overrated players in the NFL.

    He'd do well in New England. Won't happen though, he's going to want to much money.
