A short while later, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com published this tweet.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones made the decision to release the outspoken wide receiver last spring.
While the Cowboys were at training camp, Bryant took shots at the franchise as well as several players, on Twitter.
Some of those individuals, such as linebacker Sean Lee responded publicly.
Several members of the organization said that they wanted quarterback Dak Prescott to be able to spread the ball around.
During a radio appearance in October, Jerry Jones also said the team had not rostered a No. 1 wide receiver in several years. However, the Cowboys did trade for Oakland Raiders wide receiver during their bye week this season.
During the offseason, Bryant rejected a contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens. He also sat for a meeting with the Cleveland Browns.
Ultimately, he did not reach an agreement with either team.
Earlier this month, Bryant said he would be open to returning to the Cowboys.
However, Jerry Jones nixed that idea.
