Dez Bryant: I’m Dallas forever

The Cowboys fell short of the playoffs again in 2013, but wide receiver Dez Bryant was pretty low on the list of reasons why.

Bryant had 93 catches for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns, his second straight year with more than 90 catches and 1,200 receiving yards. Bryant has also scored 25 touchdowns over his last 32 games, a standard that puts him in line for a fat extension with his contract expiring after next season. Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that no contract talks have started yet, but Bryant said over the weekend that he isn’t thinking about playing anywhere else.

“Hell no,” Bryant said. “I don’t even think about leaving Dallas. I’m Dallas forever.”

While both sides would like an extension, it won’t come about easily. The Cowboys are going to be tight against the cap and they’d also like to extend left tackle Tyron Smith’s contract, leaving them with some work to do on the roster if they’re going to lock up either player before the end of the 2014 season.

Should they fail to get it done, Bryant would be a prime candidate to get a franchise tag in a year’s time although there’s plenty of time before the Cowboys would have to contemplate going that route.

    No other team would hire a personal babysitter for him like Dallas did.

    Another two or three years of mediocrity and not making the playoffs, Dez will be begging out of Dallas, because as long a Jerry “The Snake oil Salesman” Jones is in charge of day to day football operations, Dallas is going NOWHERE!

    You must keep up with the irrelevant Cowboys often sir.

    …. Until they don’t pay you and another team will.

    There will be a lot of comments regarding Dez’s immaturity, but any true fan of this team who has watched every game knows one thing – Dez is a leader.

    Who cares if he is a Cowgirl forever. It just spells mediocre, His aim is not at the Big One. (Super Bowl, NFC Champs). Just being a Cowgirl, wow.

    I think he loves his stats more than wins & losses. As long as Romo keeps throwing him the damn ball, he will be happy.

    Now I can sleep tonight.

    Some additional stats:
    1. Leaves sidelines early when losing.
    2. Fights with team mates during tough times in games
    3. And throughout his career, Dallas is 500. WR’s don’t make a team just look at the SB for that.

    I’d trade him for a pick to some team that actually believes WR are meaningful.

    Dez, Megatron & the Browns #1 all were great and all their teams missed playing in January.

    Forever? He can’t even commit to staying on the sidelines with his teammates before the game ends.

  13. buccaboo says: Feb 3, 2014 11:16 AM

    Nobody cares, the Cowboys are irrelevant

    No one else wants you…

    “Hell no,” Bryant said. “I don’t even think about leaving Dallas. I’m Dallas forever.”

    This is so Dez, like it’s all up to him where he’s going to play.

    Guess dez will be on mediocre teams forever…

    “Dez Bryant: I’m Dallas forever”
    ========================================

    That sound you just heard was Dez Bryant’s agent’s palm smacking his forehead.

    Loyalty runs deep with this one. I like me some loyalty.

    I like parts of Dez Bryant. He is a great player and teammate waiting to have a nice career.

  19. jonalleyn says: Feb 3, 2014 11:54 AM

    Dez is a beast def can’t stop a pop warner team

  20. ugadogs21 says: Feb 3, 2014 12:20 PM

    Who cares…Thanks to “America’s GM”, the kids on Friday Night Tykes are more relevant than the Cowboys.

  21. hereloaded says: Feb 3, 2014 12:24 PM

    I appreciate a loyal player… fans spill their guts throughout the season and off season in the hopes that players stay healthy, play like they wanna win and show loyalty in the exchange.

    So ready for next year (Eagles)

    Unfortunately, Jerry Jones is also a Cowboy for life.

  23. texansdude says: Feb 3, 2014 12:45 PM

    Glad he’s happy in the circus. The Cowboys for the foreseeable future are an NFL version of the Globetrotters. A mere circus act with a dog and pony show.

    Also, isn’t Dallas Forever a great stripper name?

  24. touchdownroddywhite says: Feb 3, 2014 12:57 PM

    Translation: “Jerry has some deep pockets, and he’s not afraid to dig into them for players he loves. See: Romo, Tony”

  25. tindeaux says: Feb 3, 2014 1:03 PM

    dez is owen II.

  26. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 3, 2014 1:05 PM

    What he really meant to say is “I’m Dallas forever until my next contract negotiation and they don’t offer me what I think I should be getting”.

  27. toonloonboon says: Feb 3, 2014 1:10 PM

    dezzie does dallas

  28. 7mantel says: Feb 3, 2014 1:38 PM

    Good stay there, a Dallas loss and a win for the rest of the NFL!

  29. dfwhawkguy says: Feb 3, 2014 2:01 PM

    Tony Romo made more this year than the entire Legion of Boom. Shrewd football minds running da’ boyz will probably give Dez a lifetime contract. Hopefully they also throw in a Prepaid Legal membership!

  30. oldcracker says: Feb 3, 2014 2:40 PM

    Cowboy fans, JJ and Dez all seem to deserve each other.

  31. allllldayyyyycowboys says: Feb 4, 2014 3:38 AM

    Keep Doing You DEZ. Proud to have you as a COWBOY (ALLLLLL DAYYYYY)

  32. gammynomnom says: Feb 7, 2014 6:15 PM

    I don’t think you people know what irrelevant means. Or do you make it a habit to be compelled to talk bout irrelevant things? You must be a blast at parties, talking about the Y2K threat to the worlds computers.

    Anyway, wait till its time for that “legion of Boom ” to get paid, you will see how cheap they are.
