Jerry Jones basically ended the idea of a Dez Bryant return

Will this be the end of it all? Finally?

The Dallas Cowboys are focusing on beating their in-state “rivals” (using that word loosely) this week in the Houston Texans. It’s a big game as Dallas needs some positive momentum and wants to finally get on the right side of .500 for the first time this season.

While they were preparing and planning their every move this week, somebody else was trying to do the same from outside of The Star in Frisco. Former Cowboys wide receiver, the team’s all-time leader in receiving touchdowns, Dez Bryant made a bit of a splash on social media by announcing America’s Team as his preferred destination if/when he plays football again.

During his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas (it got a bit rocky seven days ago) Jerry Jones was obviously asked about Dez Bryant’s apparent desire to return. Even though he was spotted hanging out with Dez at a Beyonce concert just a few weeks ago, Jerry Jones did his best while on The Fan to put an end to this saga once and for all by saying the Cowboys have moved on.

“We feel good about Dez and wish him the very best. Trust me, if it were in our best interests, his and ours, he’d be on the field for the Cowboys,” Jones said.

Many, including Dez himself, have suggested that Jerry was not down with the decision to release Bryant, but Jerry is making a big move by confirming his stance as being in agreement with the move. Whatever hopeful idea people did have of a return seemed to rest on Jerry maybe orchestrating it himself, but if he’s in alignment with the move then there really is nothing to see here.

Hopefully we get to see Dez Bryant succeed on the football field again, and hopefully we get to see the same for the Dallas Cowboys. It doesn’t look like they will be together, though.
