Cowboys, Dez Bryant Agree to 5-Year, $70M Deal
The Dez Bryant saga is set to beat the franchise-tag deadline buzzer, as the Cowboys and their superstar receiver are in agreement on a new contract.
Bryant has reportedly agreed to a new 5-year, $70 million deal with $45M guaranteed. In regards to guaranteed money, Bryant will be second to only Calvin Johnson, who is currently promised $48.75M.
Despite early off-the-field issues, Bryant has made major strides in avoiding further trouble, becoming one of the NFL's most-feared outside threats. Since 2012, Bryant has averaged 91 catches, 1,311 receiving yards, 13.7 TDs, while leading the NFL with 16 TD grabs a year ago.
