“THERE ARE NO EXCUSES WHEN YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE MOST TALENTED RECEIVER ON THE COWBOYS ROSTER. TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH REQUIRED’
Explanations for Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant’s production drop-off in recent years vary.
After three 1,200-yard seasons from 2012-14, Bryant hasn’t hit 1,000 yards this contract.
Some attribute the dropoff to a lack of chemistry between Bryant and quarterback Dak Prescott. Others say Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension has put more attention on receivers as the star running back wasn’t threatening defenders himself.
And when it comes to literal passes dropped, the sun glare at AT&T Stadium remains a factor.
Whatever the causes, Bryant’s dropped passes have increased significantly this year.
Once upon a time, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was considered the best receiver in the NFL. That was only a few short years ago… 2014 to be exact.
In 2014, Dez led all NFL receivers with 16 touchdown receptions, and recorded 88 receptions for 1320 receiving yards. With that outstanding performance, owner and general manager Jerry Jones rewarded Dez with a lucrative contract with $45 million guaranteed.
That year, Dez scored his 50th touchdown and went over 5,000 receiving yards in his first five seasons in the NFL. The only other players to do that were Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, future HOF Randy Moss, and the talented Andre Rison.
So let me ask you this is Dez worth it? Is Dez Bryant a liability?
