If the Dallas Cowboys thought dealing with Dez Bryant during the waning moments of last Sunday's game against Detroit Lions, they should just wait until the end of the season. According to Michael Silver of NFL Network, Bryant's advisor David Wells has revealed that Bryant will be telling Jerry Jones and the rest of the Cowboys front office to "show me the money!"
With Bryant is set to make a base salary of $1.78 million in the final year of his rookie deal next season, the soon-to-be 25-year-old receiver will pursue a contract extension. While resigning Dez to a long-term deal seems like a no brainer, there's only one slight problem. Big D is already going to be more than $30 million over the salary cap in 2014.
In order to make Bryant happy, "they’ll need to clear at least $35 million to $40 million in order to sign draft picks and other veterans and extend Bryant’s deal, especially if he’s looking for high-end money," according to Pro Football Talk. We're sure the 'Boys will do anything they possibly can to make their No. 1 wideout happy, but that will most likely come at a cost.
