Summary

Despite posturing to the contrary, the Cowboys signed Dez Bryant to a 5-year, $70mm contract with $43.5mm in guaranteed money. Now that his long-term financial future is secured, Bryant can focus on dominating opposing defenses in the way we've become accustomed. Bryant will deliver elite numbers regardless of game script, but it's worth noting if the running game falters without Demarco Murray, Bryant could get a higher volume of targets and challenge to be the #1 fantasy wide receiver. With his track record of production through nagging injuries, he is one of the safest picks at his position. (July 15)

Cowboys | Deal won't change Dez Bryant (Thu Jul 30, 11:46 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said his new contract won't change the way he approaches the game. 'It's no pressure, man,' Bryant said Thursday, July 30. 'It's no pressure. That deal don't make me. It don't make me. I play this game because I love this game.'

Our View: Money changes some players. We'll see if Bryant can stay out of trouble and avoid the pitfalls that sometimes come with large contracts.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant could be limited in camp (Tue Jul 21, 02:49 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant could see a decreased amount of snaps during training camp this year in an attempt to preserve his good health. According to executive vice president Stephen Jones, it will be important for Bryant and the Cowboys for him not to be 'thrown to the wolves' right away.

Our View: We're not shocked by this. Bryant missed out on OTAs and minicamp, so it makes sense for the Cowboys to ease him back into action. He'll be ready to rock in plenty of time for the regular season opener.
