Cowboys, Dez Bryant’s Camp Discussing Deal?

For the first time in almost four months, Dez Bryant‘s agent, Tom Condon, had a face-to-face summit with the Cowboys, according to Todd Archer of

This is a positive development for Bryant’s hopes at a contract extension, since Bryant, unlike fellow 2010 first-rounder Demaryius Thomas, showed some goodwill by making scant appearances during Cowboys workouts this summer after being franchise-tagged. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told media he’d push for a Bryant extension, but noted that a lot of work remains.

Bryant hasn’t signed his franchise tender that would pay him $12.82MM this year, a figure that doubles as Dallas’ second-highest financial commitment behind Tony Romo‘s renegotiated $14.97MM number.

The former Oklahoma State target’s threatened to miss regular-season games despite the threat of losing nearly $800K per missed contest. Archer speculates the only benefit Bryant could possibly have in skipping games would be if the team caved on its previous stance that it could re-franchise him next year. This stipulation exists in Greg Hardy‘s contract, but Jerry Jones‘ only public comments on this matter have been another Bryant tag is in play if the sides can’t come to an agreement by July 15.
