Report: Cowboys WR Dez Bryant absent from OTA
by Marty Gitlin |

It comes as no surprise that Cowboys All-Pro wideout Dez Bryant was not present Tuesday for their OTA session, as a source told the Dallas News.

The sessions are voluntary, but his absence could be a statement regarding his unhappiness over the lack of a long-term contract.

The two sides appeared to be closing in on a new deal before the start of the 2014 season, but negotiations fell through and the Cowboys then hit Bryant with the franchise tag. He has yet to sign the one-year, $12.82 million tender.

Bryant and the Cowboys have until July 15 to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, but nothing appears imminent.

Cowboys: WR Dez Bryant works with team despite contract issue
by Marty Gitlin |

The Cowboys are claiming that All-Pro wideout Dez Bryant is working out with the team despite an apparent contract stalemate.

Bryant, who was given the franchise tag in March, has reportedly been at Valley Ranch many times over the last month to visit with owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett, as well as to participate in the team's strength and conditioning program.

"I wanted to be here for my teammates," Bryant told the team website.

Cowboys star WR Dez Bryant still declining franchise tag tender
by Marty Gitlin |

Cowboys stud wide receiver Dez Bryant has yet to taken part in the offseason program or sign his franchise tag tender, which means he is not obligated to participate in any offseason program, including the mid-June minicamp.

Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, however, is not fretting.

"He'll be ready to rock and roll when it's all said and done, I'm sure of that," he told ESPN.

Bryant is set to make $12.823 million this season under the franchise tag unless he can work out a long-term deal by July 15. He would play the season under the tender if a contract is not completed.

The Cowboys have yet to undergo extensive negotiations with Bryant's new agents after considering themselves close to a deal last season.

Bryant continued to thrive in 2014 with 88 catches for 1,320 yards and a career-high 16 touchdowns.

WR Dez Bryant could return punts for Cowboys
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Wide receiver Dez Bryant is one of the NFL's biggest offensive weapons, and if the Cowboys get creative, he could become a huge special teams asset as well, according to the Dallas Morning News

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said in a call with season-ticket holders that Bryant may get a crack at returning punts this year in the absence of returner Dwayne Harris. Bryant hasn't returned a punt since 2012. 

In referencing the punt return situation, Jones said the team is willing to approach it via committee but that, "Then we have a guy in Dez Bryant who had quite a career returning punts at Oklahoma State. When we need a big play, with him maturing as a player, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see him in some key situations when we need him back there," he said.

Jerry Jones says big part Dez Bryant's growth is team's 'support system'
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said that a major part of Dez Bryant's growth has been due to the "support system" the team has afforded him, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“We got the opportunity to get Dez because of his foibles,” Jones said. “...we got him because we felt good about our support staff. We felt good about our willingness to basically contribute to Dez improving in areas that he had had challenges with in college.

Jones said that has spent more personal time with Bryant than with any other player during his 25 years as team owner and that Bryant is the only player he has co-signed for on personal checks.

“Now, he’ll be the first to tell you that a big part of why he has evolved is because he’s had great support, he’s had great encouragement," Jones said. "I think that he’s benefited. That’s rewarding, by the way”
