Cowboys WR rumors: Dallas releasing former Steelers pass-catcher after hosting Zay Jones for free agent visit | Bryan DeArdo, CBS Sports

Martavis Bryant is back on the open market. The former Pittsburgh Steelers standout receiver was released by the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, according to NFL Media. While Bryant’s services are no longer needed in Dallas, which hosted Zay Jones on a free-agent visit Wednesday, Bryant is expected to receive interest from other teams, per the report.

The Steelers could be among the teams who reach out to Bryant, a 2014 fourth-round pick who scored 15 touchdowns during his first 21 regular season games. Pittsburgh, who reportedly signed veteran wideout Scotty Miller to a one-year deal on Wednesday, have been trying to add to its receiving corps after trading Diontae Johnson to the Carolina Panthers earlier this offseason.

Moore lost his starting spot at left tackle once the Steelers selected Fautanu with the 20th overall pick.

Fautanu and Broderick Jones will be the Steelers’ offensive tackle tandem for years to come and that leaves Moore in a backup role at best.

Moore could stick around as the backup to both young offensive linemen, but he could also face a roster cut.

Steelers vs. Cowboys

How could this one not be in the national spotlight? The Steelers only face ‘America’s Team’ once every four years, so a Steelers-Cowboys matchup is almost certain to be in the national spotlight. This game will be in Pittsburgh and some fans have already talked about how great it would be to see this contest on Christmas. We’ll soon find out if the NFL makes it happen when the 2024 schedule is released.
