Dallas Cowboys are on the verge of reconstructing the contract of their premier wide-receiver Dez Bryant, as the team from Texas look to cut their cap requirements.
The 25-year-old receiver is in the final season of a five-year deal that is only worth $1.78 million per season.
Considering the talent of Bryant, that figure is sure to rise the next time he signs a contract even if there are some lingering back issues.
Fansided reported, "Now, he’s entering the final year of a five-year, $11.8 million contract with a base salary of $1.78 million this season. Jones indicates the Cowboys have exchanged numbers with Bryant and his representative about an extension.
"But he stops short of confirming whether it’s with Bryant or Tyron Smith, another young star who is part of the team’s future."
Dallas have had many issues to sort out in the off-season, and now they are about to tick off Bryant as one of the problems that they've solved.
Last month, they released star pass rusher DeMarcus Ware in a bid to remove space from the cap, and the restructure of Tony Romo's contract had preceded the attempts to do the same to Bryant's.
