Reports still conflict on Dez Bryant deal

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Are the Cowboys and WR Dez Bryant close to a long-term deal?

Depends on whom you believe.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Monday on ESPN Radio: “Despite reports that they think a deal could be coming down this week. Today, a deal doesn’t sound like it’s close. It doesn’t sound like anything’s close.”

“A week from now? We may be having an entirely different conversation. Last moment, one side steps up, the other side gives in, they meet in the middle. But today, as we stand, I don’t think we’re going to get a deal with Dez Bryant.”

Meanwhile, reporter Jason La Canfora tweeted: “Sounds like a Dez Bryant deal isn’t out of the question this week. Expect things to continue evolving and possibly conclude by midweek.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Bryant but he hasn't signed the $13 million tender. The deadline is July 15 for the Cowboys to reach a long-term deal with Bryant. Bryant has threatened to sit out the first game of the season if no deal is in place. In a twist, Bryant recently shot a Sunday Night Football promo for the same game he threatened not to attend, the story said. Bryant would cost himself $754,000 for each game he skipped, according to the article. Bryant is fourth on our WR list, but is actually going late first round ahead of our third ranked WR Demaryius Thomas.
