Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones to Meet with WR Dez Bryant on Friday

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will meet with Dez Bryant on Friday to discuss the receiver’s contract, Josh Clark of 105.3 the Fan in Dallas.

The timing couldn’t be any more important as the team will hold their first official workout on Monday.

105.3 The Fan’s Mike Fisher reported on Tuesday that the Cowboys could be prepared to say goodbye to Bryant in that meeting.

“The ‘Dump Dez’ concept was born about two months ago, when Cowboys COO Stephen Jones openly noted that Bryant’s contract needed to “be addressed.” Stephen at different times used the word “distraction” in conjunction with the player. At the time, I assumed Stephen was attempting to negotiate Bryant’s contract via the media, sure, but more, was attempting to “negotiate behavior,” Fish said in his piece.

Bryant, who has a $12.5 million base salary and a $16.5 million cap number for 2018, has been caught up in numerous rumors throughout the offseason. With the Cowboys signing receivers Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson in free agency, Dallas suddenly has a plethora of receivers on the roster.

Stephen Jones told 105.3 The Fan last week that the team had not yet met with Bryant but that his father, Jerry, would let everyone know when it happens.

“No, we haven’t. And when we (do), we’ll let you know, and the guy who will do that will be Jerry,” Stephen Jones told the Ben and Skin Show on 105.3 The Fan. “You’re talking to the wrong guy,” Jones added while chuckling.
