Dez Bryant could be getting a new contract from Dallas Cowboys soon Published: August 26, 2014

Former Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant is in line for a new deal with the Dallas Cowboys, and both sides are optimistic that a deal can get done.

Bryant, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal with Dallas, will make $1.78 million this season, plus a $250,000 workout bonus. He wants to be paid in the range of the elite receivers in the NFL ($10-12 million per season), and his numbers back his case. He's tied for the league lead in touchdown receptions since 2012 (25).

But if a deal isn't done by the beginning of the regular season, Bryant wants to put negotiations to a stop so he can concentrate on football.

“I don’t want to talk about it any more [once the season starts]," Bryant told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "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.”
