General News (Tue Jan 27): is getting support from Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015. The Cowboys could place the franchise tag on Bryant this offseason. The tag comes with a one-year fully guaranteed salary of around $12.7 million. They would prevent any other team from negotiating with him, and this would allow them a longer time (July 15th deadline) to sign him to a long-term deal.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 18 vs DET (3 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)

Bryant had a tempered performance against Detroit as the rest of the Dallas pass-catchers had elevated roles. In the first half, Bryant logged just a single reception, a short crossing route, where he was promptly stripped. He was able to recover the ball on the play. In the second half, Bryant contributed only one play of relevance. He took a short crosser route, broke the tackle of an overmatched linebacker in coverage, and scampered 43 yards into the red zone, including multiple missed tackles at the end of the play. Detroit shut down Bryant's opportunities down the field and crossing routes were the lone times Bryant found open space this week.

2014 Week 19 vs GB (4 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)

Until late in the game, Bryant was quiet in the playoff tilt against Green Bay. Without a target for the first 25 minutes, Bryant finally caught a smoke screen and burst ahead for 10 yards late in the second quarter. Bryant logged two intermediate receptions in the second half and added a defensive pass interference penalty deep down the field early in the third quarter. Finally, there was the catch, then not-a-catch, heard around the world. On fourth-and-two in Green Bay territory, Dallas put the ball in Tony Romo's hands, not DeMarco Murray, with the game on the line. Romo delivered a well-throw jump ball to Bryant down the sidelines in single coverage. Bryant skied above the defensive back and snared the pass. He surged for the end zone, ultimately coming up short, and lost control of the ball. While ruled a reception on the field, which would have put Dallas first-and-goal, it was reversed when challenged by Green Bay. Harkening back to the infamous Calvin Johnson play from recent memory, Bryant looked to have completely the catch as he attempted to score. With the incompletion ruling, the game was essentially over and Dallas' season had ended.
