Dak Prescott: Dez Bryant release was ‘not my decision’

Dez Bryant felt let down by some of his teammates following his release from the Cowboys, but one in particular claims to have had no part in his dismissal.

Despite the wide receiver blaming the team captains for playing a role in his departure, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott insisted the choice wasn’t his to make.

“I’m in my second year so as much as you want to say, ‘I want a say and this and that,’ those guys get paid a lot more than me, and that’s what those guys are there to do,” Prescott said, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’s not my decision.

“All I can do is just continue to get better at my job and do the best I can.”

The Cowboys have already have added free-agent receivers Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson to the roster this offseason, and the team freed up $8.5 million in salary cap space by cutting Bryant.

Foster faces allegations that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempted to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possession of an assault weapon. He is also being charged with misdemeanor possession of large capacity weapon magazine.

“Foster, 24, physically attacked the 28-year-old woman during a February argument at their Los Gatos home, leaving her bruised and with a ruptured ear drum,” the DA’s statement read.

If Foster is convicted on all of these accounts, he could face more than 11 years in prison.

“Our focus is on holding accountable those who hurt their intimate partners,” Prosecutor Kevin Smith said in a statement. “Our Office handles between four and five thousand domestic violence cases each year. We only hope that this case illuminates the tragic regularity of the rest.”

San Francisco released a statement Thursday acknowledging the charges against Foster.
