Dez Bryant hopes for new deal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Cowboys are talking with receiver Dez Bryant's agent about a long-term contract extension, but the sides are not close to a deal as the team opens training camp, reports ESPN.

Bryant wants 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 said. "I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of."

Bryant, 25, caught 93 passes for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.

"We'll see what happens," Bryant said. "This is a business. That's the way I've got to look at it. I know that's the way they look at it. We'll go from there."

Dez Bryant maturing at right time
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Cowboys view receiver Dez Bryant as "the glue to this offense," reports ESPN. Now the team has to decide how much to pay him, which could be in the neighborhood of $12 to $14 million a year.

Bryant said he's not worried about his contract, and will monitor things from afar. He just wants to go out and play better than last season when he had 93 catches for 1,233 yards with 13 touchdowns and 67 plays that resulted in first downs.

"To be honest, I really don't think about it," Bryant said. "I love the game. I don't think about the numbers. Whatever happens, happens. All I know is I'm confident in the work that I put in. I know if I continue to keep working hard and get the other guys to work hard, it's always going to be a good result. It's always positive when it comes out at the end."

The report also adds that Bryant is becoming more of a student of the game than ever before. Before he was just watching film, now he's going to analyze it more. He sees how defenses disguise coverages -- showing one thing and switching to something else at the last minute.

"I'm understanding it better and better the more that I watch it," he said. "Not saying I haven't. It's just becoming a lot easier to OK, on this coverage this is what I'm going to do versus this coverage. It just makes things a little bit more easier the more that I get older and grow in this offense."
