Expect more big plays from Dez Bryant
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant had 14 receptions of 20-plus yards last season, which ranked tied for 22nd in the league. Under new play caller Scott Linehan, the Cowboys will take more downfield shots to Bryant, reports ESPN.com.

In his first preseason action Saturday, Bryant caught a 31-yard touchdown on a jump ball and nearly had another downfield reception. Officials ruled Bryant didn't have complete control as he went out of bounds. Bryant also gained 22 yards when he caught a pass over the middle and broke a tackle.

"We're more in attack mode," Bryant said. "That's our mindset."

Over the past three years, Lions receiver Calvin Johnson had 94 receptions of 20-plus yards playing for Linehan.

Dez Bryant dominates in preseason debut
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant made his preseason debut Saturday against the Ravens and looked ready for the regular season. Bryant caught all three of his targets for 59 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter.

On the play, Bryant toasted defensive back Dominique Franks, adjusting to Tony Romo's pass before Franks could react. Earlier Bryant made a 22-yard reception to get the Cowboys out of a 2nd-and-20 hole from their own 8.

Cowboys to put Dez Bryant in the slot more often
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dez Bryant made 11 of his 93 receptions out of the slot last season. The Cowboys plan to use him there more often this year, reports ESPN.com. 

"He's grown as an inside receiver," coach Jason Garrett said. "The trait and the qualities are different. I've been around a lot of outside receivers who looked like a fish out of water when they moved inside.

"If you picture an X receiver in right formation, there's no one outside of you. You're typically working against a corner by yourself or there's a safety rotating over the top. When you're inside, you have people inside of you and outside of you. You have a linebacker walked out, you have a safety coming down, and you have to have a feel for how to run the routes because there's a lot going on.

"It has a lot to do with your feel as an athlete -- your vision, your instincts and your experience. You have to get in there and do it."

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."
