When asked about contract talks with the Cowboys, Dez Bryant simply responded he wants to be "respected." While he wants to be a Cowboy for life, he also says he wants to feel respected by the franchise and that they should not "test his loyalty." Dez is in the final year of his rookie contract and is looking to get paid. "It's all about respect. It's all about respect," Bryant said Wednesday. "I am a very loyal person, but just don't test my loyalty." Dez thinks that he deserves to be one of the three highest-paid receivers in the NFL. Rumors swirled that the Cowboys' best offer was a 10-year deal that averaged less than $12 million per year and included only $20 million in guaranteed money. That is not much guaranteed for such a long deal, which is surely do to character concerns. "I just know what I'm going to accept, and I know what I'm not going to accept," said Bryant, whose rookie deal was for $11.8 million over five years. "I've been here for five years. You know, it's not about the money. It's not about none of that. I just feel like a little respect should play a factor in that." Bryant has established himself as an elite receiver over the past few years. Since the start of the 2012 season, Bryant ranks first in the NFL in touchdown catches (33), fourth in receiving yards (3,408) and fifth in receptions (241).
They need to keep him. whatever it takes. New England would love to have him. so would other teams. if I was Jerry Jones. I would make it happen. no Brainerd.
The guys a top 3 wr. Pay the man.
So it's not about the money, it's about respect. But that respect is measured by how much he is offered in money, right?
@WAYNEPiper I guess if they really wanted to they could franchise him. Don't know how happy Dez would be about that though
@windycitytale statistically he has definitely earned it
