So while Bryant may love the possibility of suiting up for the NFC West champions, this is situation the Rams need to completely avoid, and not even make it a potential option since Sean McVay has plenty of reasons to be satisfied over his current group of receivers he gets to work with.
Terrance Williams is too busy letting balls bounce off his shoulder pads, and watching 35-year-old Jason Witten try to run is so excruciatingly painful it hurts my knees. With the 2018 NFL Draft just a couple of week away, this is certainly something to keep an eye with the Cowboys.
At the very least, teams had to game plan for Bryant.
Bryant broke his foot back in 2015, in the midst of the worst season for Dallas in almost a decade. "He did a lot of great things for us, obviously". The year after, star quarterback Tony Romo suffered yet another injury.
Of course, the Cowboys now have to deal with a disgruntled Dez, from the outside not the inside.
The team has more than $10 million in remaining salary cap space and can sign Bryant for less than that figure if he's willing to accept a pay cut. Prescott is surely fully aware that in his two years in Dallas, Bryant's production took a steep decline.
The Cowboys can now start to toy with the idea of resigning franchise RG Zach Martin, or giving breakout pass rusher Demarcus Lawrence an extension.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys have a decent pick in one of the better wide receiver classes of the last few years.
The reality all along was that he'd be getting one, whether he wanted one or not.
