Receiver Dez Bryant, who has made any many headlines off the field as on it in recent years, made plenty of headlines during the final year of his college career for lying about his relationship with Deion Sanders, whom some believed was trying to funnel Bryant to agent Eugene Parker.
Bryant was suspended for much of his final season at Oklahoma State, Sanders denied any wrongdoing, and Bryant ultimately hired Parker.
Bryant has now made a change in his representation. Per a league source, Bryant has signed with agent Drew Rosenhaus.
The timing could be an indication that Bryant hopes to get a new contract. Under the prior CBA, new players could renegotiate their rookie contracts after two NFL seasons. (The minimum waiting period is now three years.) Bryant is close to finishing his second NFL campaign.
Rosenhaus negotiated two contracts between the Cowboys and their last mega-high-profile receiver, Terrell Owens.
When it comes to budgeting for wideouts, the Cowboys will have to decide how to find a way to keep Laurent Robinson, who has become a touchdown machine while operating on a one-year veteran deal. If Bryant is indeed looking for a new contract, the Cowboys could have a hard time keeping Robinson while simultaneously keeping Bryant happy.
