Cowboys still hopeful of working out long-term deal with Dez Bryant

The Dallas Cowboys haven't given up on signing franchise wide receiver Dez Bryant. The Cowboys have until July 15 to sign him to a long-term deal. Otherwise, he'll play this season under a $12.823 million franchise tender. "We know he will be a Cowboy this year," Cowboys executive Stephen Jones said. "If he ends up playing this year under the tag we will go right back to work again next year. Now would we like to get a long term deal on him? Of course we would. “We’ll work hard to do that and I’m sure we’ll make a push at some point and see if we can make it work. If not, hopefully he will understand it’s difficult to make a deal at this point and he’ll come in and get ready to play.” Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
