Report: Cowboys, Dez Bryant talking extension

According to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com,  the Cowboys and wide receiver Dez Bryant are working on a contract extension.

The Dallas Cowboys have had several discussions with the agent for receiverDez Bryant about a lucrative, long-term extension, but the sides are not close to a deal as the team opens training camp.

Bryant believes he has earned the right to be among the highest-paid receivers in the league, but he understands he likely will have to wait to cash in with a new contract. Coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance, Bryant is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is due to make $1.78 million this season.

“It feels good to know that things are being talked about, but I’m going to let it take care of itself,” Bryant said. “I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of.”
