Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is going into the final year of his rookie contract, and those bargain basement prices the Cowboys are getting on one of the best receivers in the league is about to come to an end. Bryant is headed towards free agency next offseason and the Cowboys are trying to get a deal worked out so that doesn’t happen.
Bryant himself isn’t stressing about the contract situation and remains optimistic that it will happen.
“That’s going to take care of itself,” Bryant said. “I’m very confident in the work I put in. Whatever happens, happens.
“All I know is I’m going to continue to keep doing my job. That alone shows my dedication and love I have for the game. I’m going to let it work out.”
And he is right, it is going to happen. The Cowboys want to keep Bryant, and Bryant wants to stay in Dallas.
“We’re certainly taking a long look at that,” vice president Stephen Jones said during an interview on 1310 The Ticket at the end of May, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “As we do with any great player in our organization who’s nearing the end of a contract, we start to look at it and see how we might structure something going forward. I think that’s a possibility, yes.”
