As the Dallas Cowboys are still looking for reinforcements on the offensive end, they continue to reshape their roster following the 2024 NFL Draft. Much to Cowboys fans' dismay, Jerry Jones & Co. failed to make the necessary upgrades after another disappointing postseason loss.

One of the areas that still needs strengthening is the wide receiver rotation. The Cowboys are currently hosting former Jaguars receiver Zay Jones to potentially sign him to the roster. At the same time, they just announced the release of another veteran pass-catcher.

Martavis Bryant, who the Cowboys signed to their practice squad back in November, was just released. Despite consistently being praised by the coaching staff, Bryant never made an appearance for the Cowboys.

According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, there are already teams interested in Bryant's services.

Bryant is 32 years old and hasn't played in an NFL game since 2018. He was suspended by the league indefinitely in 2018 for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement following his initial suspension in violation of NFL's drug policy.

After a few seasons in the Canadian Football League, Bryant was reinstated to the NFL and attempted his comeback with the Dallas Cowboys.

The fact that the Cowboys didn't want to keep him around despite having a desperate need for more WR depth could be an indication of where Bryant physically is. Whether the former Steelers standout still has enough gas in the tank remains to be seen but if he does, the Cowboys could regret losing him for nothing.

In his prime, Bryant was a highly productive pass-catcher. In 36 games for the Steelers, he had 145 catches, 2,183 yards, and 17 touchdowns.
