Prescott laments Bryant's release: 'Tough to see him go'

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has exchanged text messages with Dez Bryant since the wide receiver's release from the franchise on Friday.

"It's sad news. That's a brother to me," Prescott said from a women's clinic he was hosting at Episcopal Parish School in Dallas. "Put the football stuff behind you, and what he meant to me as a person, what he meant to me as a brother, it's tough to see him go. It shows you it's a business. All it does is motivate me and puts all this in perspective. Just got to go to work."

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones met with Bryant for roughly 20 minutes on Friday, as Jones made the move without offering Bryant a pay cut. The Cowboys saved $8.5 million against the salary cap by cutting Bryant, the franchise's all-time leader in touchdown receptions.

Prescott was at The Star working out with teammates when the news came that Bryant had been released.

"Dez is going to be a hard guy to replace," Prescott said. "He's a talented guy, so he'll be missed."

In an interview with NFL Network, Bryant insinuated that coaches played a part in his release as well as players he labeled as "Garrett guys" and captains.
