It's official: Dez Bryant is a free agent.
After eight season's with the America's Team, Bryant was released by the Dallas Cowboys Friday morning following a meeting with team owner Jerry Jones.
ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter, saying that Friday's meeting between Jones and Bryant was to part ways with the receiver.
Shortly after, multiple reports started rolling with more confirmations that 88's time in Dallas was over.
The #Cowboys did not offer Dez Bryant a paycut. They simply released him. And no post-June 1 designation. ... It is simply a clean start for Dallas and the organization.
Last night the receiver seemed to vent some of his frustrations on Twitter, possibly posting more tweets in the span of two hours than he does in a whole year.
Shortly after media began running with the story Bryant was seen leaving The Star before he tweeted out, "let's start the process #unbothered #ThrowUpTheX"
let's start the process #unbothered #ThrowUpTheX
He then addressed the Cowboys fans, saying, "Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn't my decision.. I will always love y'all... forever Dallas in my heart."

Bryant leaves the Cowboys as the the franchise's all-time leader in touchdown receptions with 73.
Jones also released a statement shortly after his meeting with Bryant.
