Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, wondered aloud what it would be like to play with the New England Patriots or the Washington Redskins.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Dez Bryant spent Week 1 of the National Football League season as a spectator for the first time in his career.

Julius Peppers #90 celebrates with teammate Luke Kuechly #59 of the Carolina Panthers against the Dallas Cowboys in the second half during their game at Bank of America Stadium on September 9, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Bryant went on a tweeting spree at the expense of his former team. Dez clearly has no interest in doing so as he made that point abundantly while also dropping two potential destinations.

Bryant had previously been critical of the Cowboys' playcalling on offense, and he was at it again on Sunday.

"Yeah, I think it's probably early, but we have to get better in that area, no question about it", he said.

While he took several shots at his former team, Bryant did say he wouldn't be doing so on a weekly basis.

Prescott was 19 of 29 for 170 passing yards but directed only one scoring drive, while Ezekiel Elliott was held to 69 yards rushing and a touchdown.

In one of his final posts of the night, a fan asked Bryant to predict the Cowboys' final record this season.
