  • The Dallas Cowboys cut Dez Bryant on Friday.
  • According to one former NFL agent, Bryant's contract showed the importance of having a clause that pays a roster bonus early in the league year.
  • If Bryant had been owed a bonus early in the league year, the Cowboys might have cut him earlier, at the height of free agency, as opposed to late in the spring when few teams have available money to sign him.

The Dallas Cowboys cut Dez Bryant on Friday, sending the star wide receiver onto the free-agent market to sign with a new team.

Bryant's contract — he was owed $12.5 million this season — along with his recent lack of production and occasional antics pushed the Cowboys into cutting him, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.
