UPDATE: Bryant has been released.

His reign in Dallas is over. [Original Article] A star wide receiver is reportedly set to hit the open market. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys are expected to release Dez Bryant from the team, following Bryant's meeting with team owner Jerry Jones on Friday. Schefter reported that barring a change of heart in the final minutes before the meeting, Dez Bryant will be looking for a new team soon. Bryant is one of the league's highest-paid wide receivers, although his production has dipped in recent seasons. He was scheduled to make $12.5 million this season, and next, with a cap hit of $16.5 million in each of the next two seasons.

Bryant hasn't recorded a 1,000 yard season since 2014.

In 16 games last season, Bryant racked up 838 yards on 69 catches, six of which went for touchdowns. The team recently signed former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns to a longterm contract.

It looks like Bryant's run in Dallas is over.
