The Cowboys reasons for dumping Dez Bryant might go deeper that just surface analysis.
Why? That is the burning question for Dez Bryant fans. Why did the team see fit to part with their all time career touchdown leader going into a season when the offense has a big task in returning to potency?
This is a separate question from the way the whole situation was handled. It seems inarguable that the team did Bryant no favors by waiting until almost the last moment to make official a decision that had probably been made (at least for a majority of the staff) a couple of months before. But that is not the focus of this article.
