In an interview with 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] on Friday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn’t sound like he’s in a rush to sign Dez Bryant to a contract extension.
“I don’t talk about these contracts that are in this particular stage,” Jones said, “which is a negotiation, whether it be preliminary or whether it be at some advanced stage in the negotiation, so let’s just say we’re working towards those kinds of things.
“We have Dez for several more years, as it would be under contract as well as with the league-type structure that’s available to us with the franchise [tag] and the transition [tag] and all that.
“It’s an important thing. We think Dez has made a lot of progress, but it’s something that is going to be very impactful on our team, so it’s just not necessary to move at any faster rate than we’re moving.”
I’m not sure what Jones is waiting for, Bryant is their best offensive player. It’s time to pay him.
