With the Cowboys just like every team having to abide by the league’s salary cap rules, the team had a hard time going into the off-season when it came to keeping both Bryant and Murray.
The team decided to use their franchise tag on Bryant. After their offer to Murray wasn’t enough, Murray signed with the Eagles.
Bryant took to Twitter to reach out to Murray.
Bryant tells Murray that he wishes he could of stayed but that he understands Murray’s decision to leave.
Murray has been on the record saying it wasn’t about the money but rather about having a chance to win a Super Bowl. While that certainly could be debated, Bryant made the classy gesture by telling Murray he deserved his new contract and new venture.
The two made a big impact for the Cowboys last year as they made a run into the playoffs. Now they will be competing against each other to make the playoffs.
