Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is known for being vocal on the sidelines; but Friday he had to remind Cowboys Nation of his audible talents when addressing comments made by a team executive. According to Yahoo Sports, team vice president Stephen Jones went on Sirius XM NFL, and while discussing the progress quarterback Dak Prescott has made and how things should be easier without number 88 on board.

“I think he’s gotta trust the system, which I think at times last year there was pressure with Dez in his ear,” said Jones, who is also the son of owner, Jerry. He also added Prescott wouldn’t have retired tight end Jason Witten in his head either.

Bryant caught wind of the comments and responded on his Twitter account:

Bryant had much more to say, including an allegation that Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee had something to do with his release:

Jones later tried to clear up his comments by saying they were not meant to come off as negative.

Bryant played for the Cowboys for 8 seasons before being cut this recent offseason. While you might expect teams to be lining up for a 3-time pro bowler, it has not really been the case. So Bryant has every right to go off on with his response, when these comments he perceives to be untrue, could be in the way of him getting signed by a team. He has been relatively quiet throughout this process and has been relatively respectful of the team who drafted him in 2010. Bryant has declared wherever he goes, he is only taking a 1 year “prove-it” deal. So far, the only teams that have shown interest been the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns. At this time, no official signing has been reported from either the Browns or Bryant’s camp.
