Dez Bryant wants long-term contract from Dallas Cowboys

Dez BryantDez Bryant is in his fourth season with the Dallas Cowboys and signed through next year, but he’d like to make his stay in Dallas last longer.

According to NFL Network reporter Mike Silver, Dez’s advisor, David Wells, says Dez is “looking forward to” signing a long-term deal in the offseason.

Bryant is making $1.55 million this season and set to earn $1.78 million next season. His original deal was five years for $11.81 million, including a $1.95 million signing bonus.

Pro Football Talk says the Cowboys are $30 million over the salary cap for next season. But as long as we’ve known Jerry Jones, he’s never been someone to let something stand in the way of him paying a player he believes in.

Mike Wallace signed a five-year, $60 million free agent deal with the Miami Dolphins in the offseason for $30 million guaranteed. We’d expect to see Dez get at least that much in a new deal.
