The Cowboys tried to sign receivers Sammy Watkins and Allen Robinson. If they’d secured either guy, Dez Bryant may have seen his time in Dallas come to an end.

As it stands, the Cowboys haven’t added a No. 1 receiver, which has kept Dez Bryant on the roster. The question becomes whether the Cowboys add a No. 1 receiver via a trade or the draft — and whether that results in Bryant being released.

Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram explained during Friday’s PFT Live that the Cowboys would like to resolve the situation before the start of the offseason program.
