Irvin: Cowboys would be 'stupid' to release Bryant

Bryant, who had a team-leading 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns in 2017, told reporters in December that he wouldn't be willing to take a pay cut.

"I just think when he has those type of emotional roller coasters, I think at the end of the day he needs to understand that it does affect more than just Dez", Jones said from the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Last week, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones admitted that Bryant can be a "distraction" at times.

There's been some chatter in recent weeks that the Dallas Cowboys might be thinking about cutting Dez Bryant, who is set to count for $16.5 million against the cap in 2018.

"The Cowboys would be stupid, stupid to let this boy go right now". He actually used the word "stupid" twice.

"You don't find No. 1 receivers hanging off trees like leaves", Irvin said. So what you gonna do, let Dez go?

"Who you got to replace him?" You don't find them this easily. Let me tell you something, man: "Let the bone go". I went through this a couple years ago, with Cowboys fans when they were winning.

Irvin blamed Bryant's struggles on a lack of chemistry between him and second-year quarterback Dak Prescott.

Irvin said the crticism reminded him of 2015, when the Cowboys chose to let running back DeMarco Murray leave in free agency and sign Bryant to a long-term contract. "He'd say 'Mike, sometimes I go off read to make sure I get the ball to Dez just because I wanted his positive energy.' These are things young Dak is going to learn".

As a result, there is speculation regarding Bryant's future in Dallas as a true No. 1 receiving option. "I'm telling you right now, guys, back up". And trust me, trust me - give it time.

To say the Dallas Cowboys endured a tumultuous 2017 National Football League season would be a massive understatement. Nobody's talking about the thing that hung over their heads all year long.

"I say, 'Let's reload and shoot one more shot next year, '" Irvin said.
