Cowboys Dez 'Money Issues' Argument 'Absurd'

DALLAS - As I reported last Thursday, there is a feel-good vibe at Valley Ranch as it relates to the Dez talks. So what of this national report that Jerry is trying to screw Dez because the All-Pro receiver is broke? Um ... there is not a good feeling about this, at all, once source calling it 'outrageous.'



In recent days, the Dallas Cowboys have seen Dez Bryant show up to minicamp, meet with NBC to film promos for the NFL opener, offer to help the Mavs recruit in free agency, and do backflips in left field at Dirk's charity baseball game.

Oh, and last Thursday -- as I reported at the time -- come away from agent Tom Condon meetings with the Joneses with a feel-good vibe.

He wants his security ...



And everyone involved is working toward that "Cowboys For Life'' cause.

But there are no allegiance issues here. And there are no "needy financial issues'' here. Yet ... along comes a Bleacher Report video piece that insists that these negotiations are lowlighted by Jerry Jones' efforts to put the screws to Dez because he's out of dough.

The response I get to the report from those involved? It comes in two words:

"Outrageous.''

And "absurd.''

Dez is not out of money. And Jones has a long history -- 26 years and a thousand contract dealings -- of not being a negative negotiator. It's not his style. And it's not applicable here.

The rhetoric is heating up when it comes to the Cowboys trying to to strike a long-term deal with star receiver Dez Bryant. If you read CHQ, you know that we try to not write about this stuff without talking to Dez himself. Not "sources.'' Dez.

So trust this: The countdown is on, as there are now less than 30 days remaining to finalize an agreement. Bryant’s tweet references the franchise tag tender (one year) which will have him play the season under a $12.83 million price tag. A long-term deal will normally include a rather large portion of the first three years as guaranteed salary; money the player will get no matter what (to a degree). If a player signs a tender, that salary is guaranteed for the year, but nothing beyond that is known. A career-ending injury would mean no additional income for said player.

Among those giving voice today to understanding all of this? None other than Jerry Jones:



Bryant has yet to sign the tender. The two sides have until July 15th to agree on a long-term deal before a moratorium kicks in; the sides will be barred from any negotiations until the end of the league year.

It makes perfect sense for Bryant to not sign the tender yet. Whether he signs it before the July 15th deadline or after, he will still be locked into the same, $12.83-million salary. The difference is, were he to have already signed it, or sign it prior to the mandatory appearances (this week’s minicamp, the summer’s training camp) he would be required to attend all of them or face fines. Without signing it, the Cowboys cannot punish Bryant for no-showing any of the offseason activities. Of course, career-ending injuries can happen in a practice, so there is plenty of reason for a player to be more cautious without the security of a multi-year guarantee.

This ordeal has stretched out for months now, but what exactly is the hold up in getting a long-term deal done? The club has made it clear they want Dez, Dez has made it clear he wants to be a Cowboy for life… what gives?

The answer: July 15 is the deadline. But last Thursday was about movement.

Other teams are making similar decisions. An issue is that the teams, and the representation for these young wideouts, are struggling to figure out where exactly the market lies for wideouts in today’s NFL. Most view the Johnson and Fitzgerald contracts as being too rich. No wideout since approached those numbers, although as we looked at back in October, many undeserving wideouts formed a second tier, with a large gap between them and the top two wideouts. (Note: Fitzgerald renegotiated his contract with the Cardinals this offseason, shrinking his hit to $10m per year).

Dez sitting out a game, or games (as our own Mike Fisher unearthed in another of his exclusive one-on-ones with the star wideout)? That's one form of talk. What happened Thursday is another.

But there are no negative vibes inside Valley Ranch, no negative vibe from the Joneses, no negative vibes from Dez. There is only a negative vibe from a national media outlet. ... and the national media counts for nothing here. Thankfully.
