    RB Ezekiel Elliott Takes To Twitter To Defend WR Dez Bryant

    The made headlines about one month ago, releasing veteran wide receiver and franchise touchdown receptions leader Dez Bryant. Bryant was a self-proclaimed “Cowboy for Life,” and despite his struggles in 2017, he clearly believed both he and could get it right in 2018.

    To at least a certain degree, the disagreed.

    Now that Dez Bryant is released he is free to sign with any team, but to this point, he hasn't been able to find a home. Bryant took to a few days ago to call out the media for misconstruing how is is going. Bryant claims that personal decisions, not lack of suitors, is why he is still on the open market.

    While this drama was unfolding, Bryant's now former teammate Ezekiel Elliott took to his . Elliott tweeted that you can doubt Dez Bryant all you want because “he gone ball regardless.”

    Elliott's defense of Bryant is interesting on a few levels. First off, Elliott had been assumed to be one of the so-called “Garrett guys,” due to his relationship with Dak Prescott.

    Elliott's tweet also makes me wonder how much player input really weighed into the decision making, or if only the opinions of a select few weighed the heaviest. In addition, Elliott's cover photo on Twitter is still of him and Bryant celebrating together before the .

    Regardless it really doesn't matter. Dez Bryant is gone now and the Cowboys have clearly moved on and overturned their receiver room.

    Now we just have to hope the is better for it in 2018.

    why do we keep beating a dead horse? Its a non issue, he is not on the team and apparently no one else wants him…next.

    real issue… Jones sweet talk these young men with “loyalty”, “legacy” COWBOY BS… he couldn’t take advantage of Dez like he did when he was younger… and they didn’t want to pay him. Same will happen with Dak. They outperform rookie contracts, get rewarded down the road for outperforming… then they yank rug with… What Have You Done Lately.
