Jerry Jones said last week he expected to meet with Dez Bryant and his representation in the coming days. A week later, the meeting still hasn’t happened, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

“When we do, we’ll let you know, and the guy who will do that will be Jerry,” Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, via Todd Archer of ESPN.

The Cowboys want to keep Bryant but likely not at his $12.5 million base salary and $16.5 million cap number for 2018. They have upgraded at the position since last season.

Dallas signed Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson in free agency and still could draft a receiver. The Cowboys have shown interest in Alabama’s Calvin Ridley and SMU’s Courtland Sutton among others.

  1. .
    Dez is the definition of a poisonous player not OBJ.
    OBJ can mature up Dez can not.

  2. Jerry is tucking it to bryant the same way he tucked it to romo, keep him in limbo till market dries up . It’s Karma Jones, did it with romo and wound up with wrong qb. Didn’t you learn anything ?

  3. Draft Ridley first. Then ask Bryant to take the pay cut “or else”. Once that’s done, let’s address Beasly and Witten—they’re both replaceable too.

  4. That means they aren’t going to. Dez has made his stance known.

    Either he will change his mind and approach them about a paycut/restructure (they’ll spin it as an “extension”), or he will be a post-June 1 cut.

  5. Pretty sure dallas is kicking them selfs ryte now when they could have traded dez to the rams for a first or a couple of 2nds too buuld around dak.

  6. Not a Cowboys fan, but Dez is one of the toughest dudes out there.

    Don;t know if he will be kept or not, but his commitment should never be questioned. I will say that.
