Dak Prescott reacts to Dez Bryant’s release
Dez Bryant is no longer a Dallas Cowboy, and that’s unfortunate news from Dak Prescott’s perspective.
Prescott admitted he was sorry to see Bryant go and praised his former teammate.
“Yeah, obviously it’s sad news. That’s like a brother to me,” Prescott said Saturday, via the team’s official website. “You can put the football stuff behind you. What he meant to me as a person, what he meant to me as a brother. It’s tough to see him go.
Prescott admitted he has traded texts with Bryant since his release, and said the front office never asked his input on whether to keep the receiver.
“I’m in my second year,” Prescott said. “As much as you want to say, ‘I want a say-so’ or this and that, those guys get paid a lot more than me. That’s what those guys get paid to do. That’s not my decision. I didn’t really know if it was happening. I can’t say I fully thought it would happen.”
Prescott and Bryant have been plagued by rumors of discord, which Prescott consistently denied. He’s saying all the right things in the wake of his teammate’s release as the Cowboys well and truly turn the offense over to him.
