Dez Bryant confident contract can be reached

Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant is optimistic about the chances of reaching a new deal before the season begins, saying there's a "big chance" that happens.

“I honestly feel like what I do, sooner or later, I’m going to get what I deserve,” Bryant said. “I believe it. That’s why I don’t stress about it. There’s no need to stress about it. It’s coming. I know it’s coming, so no need to worry about it.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he's feeling good about how things are going, too.

“I wouldn’t refute that. I just wouldn’t,” Jones said. “I think that’s the best way to respond to that. He’s got a good sense of it. He obviously feels in the right circumstances he wants to get something done. We do, too. That can be good.”

Bryant has caught 185 passes for 2,611 yards and 25 touchdowns over the pat two seasons.
