Dez Bryant got to throw the ‘X’ up one more time on Friday. This time it was at his ‘X’-team, the Dallas Cowboys, who released him moments earlier.

The three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was not offered to take a pay cut, as originally thought would happen earlier this week.

The 29-year old was due to carry a cap hit of $16.5 million for each of the next two seasons. By cutting him loose, it now creates $8 million in dead cap for the upcoming season and $8.5 million in cap savings.

In a statement by Jerry Jones, he said that it was not an easy decision and that “we arrived at this crossroad collectively with input from several voices within the organization. Ultimately, we determined it was time to go in a new direction.”

Bryant took to social media when news got out that he had been released and stated on Twitter, “Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn’t my decision… I will always love y’all… forever Dallas in my heart.”

Bryant, the 24th overall selection in the 2010 draft, has totaled 531 receptions, 7,459 yards, and 73 touchdowns in 113 games. He added 15 receptions for 218 yards and two touchdowns in three playoff games. He hasn't reached 1,000 yards or 10 touchdowns since 2014.

So, what was his final remarks to his now ex-teammates before leaving? It was reportedly, “I’ll see you guys twice this year.”

Who’s up for watching those revenge games?
