Dez Bryant had some kind words for Dallas Cowboys fans after his release on Friday, but he wants a chance to face his old team next season.
The former All-Pro receiver tweeted out a message of appreciation after the Cowboys cut him. The former Oklahoma State star had played in Dallas for eight years.
Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn’t my decision.. I will always love y’all… forever Dallas in my heart

Though he was thankful for the Dallas fans, it sounds like he feels he has some unfinished business with the organization.
Cowboys officials reportedly met with Bryant on Friday and told him he was being released. Multiple reporters on the Cowboys beat say Bryant wants to sign with another NFC East team so he can play Dallas twice in 2018.
Dez walked out saying I'll see guys twice this year, I'm told. So that's that.

The Giants and Washington both have potential needs at receiver. Bryant could also go play for the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles if he really wanted a chance to irk his former team.
Bryant had 69 receptions for 838 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, so he can be an asset to a team for the right price.
He was selected No. 24 overall in the 2010 draft.
