The Cowboys have not had any discussions with Bryant’s agent yet, though Jones acknowledged it’s coming. The 29-year-old receiver is scheduled to make $12.5 million in base salary and count $16.5 million against the cap.
The team could ask Bryant to take a pay cut since he has not had a 1,000-yard season since 2014 and his last 100-yard game was November 13, 2016.
“We’ll talk about Dez when it’s time,” Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It’s not time.”
Hurns and Thompson were signed to increase competition at the position, Jones said, with new receivers coach Sanjay Lal identifying both as good fits for the offense.
