Summary

Dez Bryant has grown up. It wasn't long ago that Bryant's obvious physical talents were overshadowed by immaturity on and off the field. Luckily for Bryant and Cowboys fans alike, a light switch appears to have gone on and Bryant has found his place as one of the league's most dominant receivers. The 6'2", 225 lbs. dominates at the point of attack, and can make plays in traffic or blow past defensive backs for a deep sideline route. Bryant is coming off a 93-catch, 1,233 yard, 13 TD season and there's nothing to think he can match those goals again in 2014 as long as Tony Romo recovers quickly from back surgery. (May 24)

Cowboys | Dez Bryant meets with owner (Wed Aug 27, 01:47 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met with owner/general manager Jerry Jones Tuesday, Aug. 26, to discuss his contract situation, according to sources. The two sides have talked about a contract extension for months but no deal has been reached at this point. The biggest obstacle in the talks appears to be the guaranteed money included in the deal.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant deal by Thursday? (Tue Aug 26, 08:18 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant could have a new contract before the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, sources in Dallas told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.

Our View: This would be a coup for the Cowboys, but it will also probably be another ticket to cap hell and a contract that can be restructured repeatedly. Either way, the Cowboys choice of Bryant in the first round of the 2010 draft has been very wise in hindsight and we should congratulate Jerry Jones on that.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant talks heat up (Tue Aug 26, 07:08 PM) - Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's contract talks have reportedly intensified. Bryant is currently scheduled to make $1.78 million this year -- the final year of his rookie contract.

Cowboys | Dez Bryant willing to wait on contract (Tue Aug 26, 01:00 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is prepared to table contract discussions with the team if he doesn't have a new long-term deal by the beginning of the regular season. 'I don't want to talk about it anymore,' Bryant said. 'Put it behind me. I love this game. Either way, I feel like I can't be distracted once I'm on the football field.' He's due to be paid $1.78 million this year in the final year of his rookie deal. Bryant feels good progress has been made and that there is a 'big chance' a deal is struck before Week 1.

Our View: Bryant is going to get one of the largest WR contracts in NFL history, and the cast-strapped Cowboys might not be able to afford his demands. Bryant has come a long way from earlier in his career, when there was a report that Dallas was not inclined to re-sign him at the end of his rookie deal.

Cowboys | Tony Romo impressive in debut (Sat Aug 16, 10:50 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) completed four of his five passes in his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 16. His night included a 31-yard touchdown to WR Dez Bryant.

Our View: Romo's back was a concern after some reports of the deep ball being an issue in training camp. This doesn't completely dispel that notion, but it certainly adds confidence for anyone taking Romo or any of his targets in fantasy drafts.
