Dallas Cowboys rumors: Dez Bryant met with Jerry Jones to discuss possible extension

The Dallas Cowboys are inching closer to making a multi-year commitment to the mega-talented and volatile Dez Bryant. He will command top money, of course, but the Cowboys might pause due to some of the checkered incidents in Bryant’s past.

As those talks progress, a key step might have taken place on Wednesday morning, as Bryant met with team owner/president/general manager/everything else Jerry Jones to discuss a possible extension.

Granted, the thought of those two trying to bang a deal out is entertaining in its own right, but there are understandably a number of issues Jones might want to address before making a commitment.

Ian Rapoport reports the following:

Bryant is coming off a monster season in which he posted 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns on 93 catches. There is no question about his abilities when he is on the field and healthy. There is a significant question, however, as to whether Bryant can be trusted to stay on the field both in terms of conduct and health.

Like so many NFL teams with their most talented players, that is the balancing act that the Cowboys must navigate as they ponder an extension for Bryant.
