East Notes: Hunter, Bills, Giants

Earlier today, Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant took to Twitter to further present his side of the story in his contract dispute.

$13MM is cool, but where is my security?Bryant tweeted.

Recently, Bryant suggested that he is prepared to sit out regular season games if an extension isn’t in place. However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones indicated that he’s not taking that threat seriously. Here’s more from the East divisions..

  • Former Jets offensive lineman Wayne Hunter had a tryout for the Bills at the team’s minicamp today, per Mike Rodak of ESPN.com (via Twitter). It’s been a couple years since we’ve heard from Hunter, who started all 16 games at right tackle for the Jets in 2011, and last appeared in the NFL in 2012.
  • Ereck Flowers is one of just six first-round draft picks without a signed NFL contract, but the Giants’ rookie left tackle isn’t worried, as Paul Schwartz of the New York Post writes. Flowers’ situation is unique in that he does not have an agent, so he is effectively represented by himself and his family. When asked if he might be a possible training camp holdout, Flowers said “I don’t see it getting to that point.’’
  • When asked if he had any indication from the league when a ruling might be coming down, Jones said that he hasn’t. “No, I don’t. We don’t want to expect anything from a time standpoint. We don’t want to expect anything cause we need to have the league and Greg and us to have a full opportunity to have a thorough consideration,” the Cowboys owner said, according to Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram. Hardy’s suspension was the subject of today’s Community Tailgate here at PFR.
