Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant remains hopeful that he'll eventually land a lucrative contract extension.

 

“That’s going to take care of itself,’’ Bryant said. “I’m very confident in the work I put in. Whatever happens, happens.

“All I know is I’m going to continue to keep doing my job. That alone shows my dedication and love I have for the game. I’m going to let it work out.’’

Bryant is due a $1.78 million base salary in the final year of his rookie deal.

Talks haven't started yet, but Bryant wants to be in the mix whenever they do.

“I’m going to be very involved,’’ Bryant said. “That’s me. I’m the one playing on the field. I’m the one being injured. When it’s time for me to be up in a meeting, I’m going to be there.’’
