Cowboys’ Exec Will McClay Points To Dez Bryant’s Lack Of Production

As former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant continues to search for a new team, his former team is closing the book on their relationship with the veteran wideout.

Cowboys vice president of player personnel Will McClay was very candid when speaking with ESPN 103.3 FM about the decision to part ways with Bryant earlier this offseason, ahead of the NFL Draft.

“It was a collective deal,” McClay explained, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“The (inability) to win one-on-one, to win downfield. There was inconsistency as well as some huge things in his play. So what’s best moving forward for Dez Bryant [and] the Cowboys, we just made that decision. It’s a production-based business.”

Bryant was reportedly supposed to spend this offseason working with a route-running guru to help improve his game, but his $12.5M base salary proved to be too rich of an investment.

The scathing assessment won’t serve Bryant well on the free agent market.
