In 2015, Bryant was injured in their Week One victory over the New York Giants. By the time he returned to the field, Tony Romo was out with an injury.
In fact, that entire year he only was able to play one entire game with Romo. In that Week 11 showdown at Miami, Bryant finished with 4 catches on 9 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown.

The next season, Romo was again injured, this time in a preseason game, forcing Bryant to have to formulate a quick bond with rookie Dak Prescott. While Prescott turned out to be far better than anyone could have imagined, chemistry takes time.
Now into their second year together, you can still see the Prescott is currently incapable of throwing the ball to a spot Bryant can make a play. Prescott, maybe knowing his limitations, has routinely avoids even trying these throws. When he does, it’s often over Bryant’s head or behind him.
It would behoove both players to work tirelessly this offseason at perfecting this throw. The two need each other to be successful but right now, things are just not working.
Above all else, the biggest issue for Bryant may just be opportunity.
