Dez Bryant Tweets That He Doesn’t Feel Cowboys are Committed to Him

Dez Bryant

Don’t tell me you love me, show me.

That’s how Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant is feeling about the Cowboys. Bryant has openly expressed wanting a long-term contract with significant guarantees, but it looks like the Cowboys are a little hesitant to give it to him.

It’s reported Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones said that the team is leaning toward using the franchise tag on Bryant, a move that wouldn’t be necessary if both parties could agree on a long-term deal.

The wideout took to Twitter to vent some of his frustrations in a response to a fan who commented that they loved how dedicated Bryant was to the franchise. Bryant responded by saying he “wished they [Cowboys] felt the same way but it’s cool, it’s business.”


There’s no question Bryant has earned the long-term contract, with an NFL-best 56 touchdowns since the start of the 2010 season. That’s more TDs over the first five years of a career than any receiver other than Jerry Rice and Randy Moss, which is Hall of Fame-caliber company.

You’ve got to wonder why the Cowboys aren’t ready to dish out that money to keep Dez around for the long haul.
