Dez Bryant wants long-term contract from Dallas Cowboys
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.
