Jerry Jones Say Dez Bryant Won’t Be Making a Return to the Cowboys

Cowboys’ team owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday the timing of the release of Dez Bryant earlier this month was “as good a time as any from the end of the season,” the Dallas Morning News reports.

At the team’s pre-NFL draft news conference, Jones was asked about the release of the Pro Bowl receiver who played for the Cowboys for eight seasons.

“I have no thoughts about the timing of when we decided to move on,” Jones started. “For everyone concerned, that was as good a time as any from the end of the season.”

Jones added that he didn’t want to diminish the team’s feelings about Bryant as a person or his past contributions to the team.

Also, Jones appeared to shut the door on the idea of Bryant returning to the Cowboys if the free-agent market for him has indeed cooled off.

“I think a nice crisp time to call it a day is the way to do this. And I thought it was the case as far as when we discussed his future with the Cowboys, and I think that would pertain to your question about is the door still open,” Jones told reporters. “I think we need to keep this real crisp and the lines real bright. Consequently, we need to move on knowing that we don’t have Dez. And that sounds a little intangible, but it’s a little more than that.”
