Cowboys Still Hoping to Get Dez Bryant to Ink a Long-Term Deal

<> on January 4, 2015 in Arlington, Texas.

By July 15, the Cowboys have to sign Dez Bryant to a long-term deal or the Pro Bowl receiver will have to play the season on the franchise tag tender worth $12.823 million.

While Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones has not talked recently with Bryant’s agents, Tom Condon of CAA and Kim Miale, Roc Nation, he remains hopeful something can be worked out but does not feel pressured to do a deal by the deadline, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports.

“We know he will be a Cowboy this year,” Jones said after organized team activities (OTAs) on Wednesday. “If he ends up playing this year under the tag we will go right back to work again next year. Now would we like to get a long term deal on him? Of course we would. We’ll work hard to do that and I’m sure we’ll make a push at some point and see if we can make it work. If not, hopefully he will understand it’s difficult to make a deal at this point and he’ll come in and get ready to play.”

Bryant has not taken part in the voluntary offseason program but he has shown up to Valley Ranch on occasion, including last week when he went through individual drills in the first week of OTAs. Bryant is not required to show up at the mandatory June 16-18 minicamp unless he signs the tender.
