He totaled 838 yards on 69 receptions with six touchdowns last season and has 7,459 career receiving yards to go with 73 career touchdowns.
If that's true, that would put the Redskins firmly in play for Bryant.
The Cardinals have about $20 million in cap space, according to Sportrac.
Interest in Bryant can't be ruled out - because the Bills have a need at wide receiver. ESPN says that Bryant who met with Jones was not offered a pay cut.
His best years came from 2012-2014. But in many ways, it will be odd to see the Cowboys next season without their longtime No. 1 wideout.
Fresh off of signing Sam Bradford on to be their new starting quarterback, the Cardinals are looking to give him some targets other than veteran Larry Fitzgerald.
The Cardinals' receiver depth is thin behind Larry Fitzgerald, which begs the question: Should Arizona pursue this polarizing player? Russell Okung, 30, a left-tackle for the Los Angeles Charges, tweeted that the Cowboys made a "cold blooded" decision "to cut [Dez] so late into the off season".
Bryant even retweeted a tweet that suggested he would explore signing with one of Dallas' rivals. With the addition of Jimmy "Brady 2.0" Garappolo at quarterback last season, the 49ers future looks very bright. I don't know. Probably not. Bryant isn't exactly a burner, but he's got a big frame and a physical presence. The Cowboys current crop of wideout's is hardly awe inspiring and with the 19th pick in the first round of the 2018 draft they could well pull the trigger on a young receiver. "They'd like to be able to see if there's a chance that he could play, not at the expense of a bad deal for Earl Thomas, but I think a deal for Earl Thomas now has to be in the mix". And, so, I agree with him.
Adding Bryant after releasing Jordy Nelson doesn't really add up.
