The Dallas Cowboys have had several discussions with the agent for receiver Dez Bryant about a lucrative, long-term extension, but the sides are not close to a deal as the team opens training camp, according to ESPN.
I feel Dez Bryant is a top 5 wide out in the NFL and needs to get paid like one. Bryant also believes he has earned the right to be among the highest-paid receivers in the league, but he understands he likely will have to wait to cash in with a new contract. Coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance, Bryant is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is due to make $1.78 million this season.
“It feels good to know that things are being talked about, but I’m going to let it take care of itself,” Bryant told ESPNDallas.com after the Cowboys’ first practice of camp Thursday. “I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of.”
What do you think? Should the Cowboys open the checkbook for Dez?
