The Dallas Cowboys have a new offer for wide receiver Dez Bryant.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have offered Bryant just over $12.8 million per year. However, Rapoport did not specify for how many years and how much guaranteed money is involved.
Per Rapoport, Bryant is still asking for more money. Bryant wants the type of money Lions receiver Calvin Johnson got a few years ago with his $113 million contract. Rapoport is also reporting that one source of his believes the Cowboys and Bryant have a long ways to go with the deadline to sign franchise-tagged players hits.
It’s been reported in the past that the Cowboys were close to giving Bryant a seven-year, $100 million contract. However, other reports have disputed that information.
The Cowboys have until 3:00 p.m. CST on July 15 to sign Bryant to a long-term deal otherwise the receiver will play the season with the franchise tag in place.
