Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com reports that Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant said that his agent has had “preliminary” talks with the Cowboys and that he is pushing to get a deal done before the start of the regular season.
“Yeah, I deserve it,” Bryant said. “I deserve it. I feel like I do. I put the work in, but I let that kind of stuff take care of itself. It is what it is. I let my agent talk about it and give me some feedback.”
There is slim to no chance that the Cowboys are going to let Bryant loose, so it looks like it will come down to a question of whether they get a deal done before they have to use the franchise tag to guarantee his return in 2015.
