DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - For the first time Tuesday, a member of the Jones family commented publicly on the decision to release star wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Cowboys COO Stephen Jones joined the GBAG Nation on 105.3 The Fan to talk about Bryant's release.

“I think it’s always difficult because Dez was an amazing player for us,” Jones said. “He helped us win a lot of football games. At the same time, these things happen in our business.”

When asked what his thoughts were when Bryant said 'Garrett Guys' helped push him out the door, Jones said, "I don't understand that comment. I certainly respect anybody that has a comment about the organization.You certainly see always see things when it's difficult for a player to take the next step. Whether it's a Larry Allen, Demarcus Ware, an Emmitt Smith, all Hall-of-Famers who ended up playing with another team. Those things are hard. You know, when you have decided to move on maybe there's a thought in your mind (the player) that you weren't a particular coach's guy or an organizational guy. But I certainly don't see that on this football team."
