Dez to get the franchise tag

Remember that awful video that we heard about regarding Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant? It was supposedly “Ray Rice style” and would end his career when it came out. That was supposed to come out this week according to

Well, the Cowboys don’t seem all that worried about it. If they really thought there was a video about to surface that would probably send him away from the NFL for a year, they wouldn’t be so close to giving him the franchise tag. According to Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones, that’s what the team is about to do.

“I think it would be a stretch to think we would have something done by Monday,” Jones said. “Looks like we’re eyeing a franchise tag on Dez, but that certainly won’t stop us from working hard to get a long-term deal.”

Dez will make about $13 million under the tag this year. They’ll still probably want to work something out long term, but it’s not looking like that will happen any time soon.
