Many Cowboys fans want their top wide receiver Dez Bryant stay with the Dallas Cowboys for long time and so does the team. The team’s offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said the Cowboys will try their best to keep Bryant in team.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said during a Wednesday conference call with season-ticket holders that Bryant’s contract situation is difficult because several other elite receivers are in a similar spot. Dez Bryant Elite Jersey. Like Bryant,Denver’s Demaryius Thomas was recently given the franchise tag after completing the final year of his rookie contract.Atlanta’s Julio Jones andCincinnati’s A.J. Green are currently in the final year of their rookie deals. It’s likely that Bryant won’t practice with the team until training camp starts in late July. The Cowboys have yet to have as substantive talks with Bryant’s new agents.
In fact, Linehan is looking at Bryant’s absence as a positive for receivers such as Terrance Williams and Devin Street. Linehan said Saturday that Bryant’s absence gives young wide receivers like Terrance Williams and Devin Street opportunities to work at the other receiver positions. “You’re kind of practicing on your depth and giving guys an opportunity to work with the first group,” Linehan explained. “Normally that’s not going to happen. You’re kind of isolating that first group – Dez and [Jason]Witten, and Terrance only at Z. “Now I feel like it gives us a chance to kind of develop guys that normally would be working with the second or third group with our first group. You have to look at it as a great opportunity. I think it’s been really good for our guys.”
Bryant is set to make $12.823 million this season under the franchise tag unless he and the Cowboys can reach an agreement on a long-term deal by July 15. If they don’t get a deal done then Bryant would have to play the season under the tender. Devin Street Cowboys Jersey. Until Bryant signs the tender, he is not obligated to show up for any part of the offseason program, including the June 16-18 minicamp.
