Dez Bryant has been the Dallas Cowboys number one option on offense ever since he rocked up at AT&T stadium and probably will be the go to guy till he shuffles off his NFL coil.

Well the wide receiver is coming to the end of his rookie deal with the Cowboys and boy does he want to be paid, Jerry Maguire 'Show me the Money!!' style. Bryant really does believe that he deserves to be the best paid wideout in the league.

"Yeah, I deserve it," Bryant told ESPN Dallas. "I deserve it. I feel like I do. I put the work in, but I let that kind of stuff take care of itself. It is what it is. I let my agent talk about it and give me some feedback."

The 25-year old is coming to the end of the deal that he signed in 2010 after being taken in the first round of the draft out of Oklahoma State. Bryant is due to make $1.75million this year and wants to earn 10 times that much in his newer deal that they want wrapped up before the start of the season.

The Chicago Bears' Brandon Marshall signed a three-year, $30 million extension last week that made him the seventh wide receiver who has a contract with an average annual value of at least $10 million, joining Detroit's Calvin Johnson, Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald, Seattle's Percy Harvin, Miami's Mike Wallace, Kansas City's Dwayne Bowe and Tampa Bay's Vincent Jackson.

Bryant certainly has a case to become the highest paid receiver. He's been proving his worth on the field. Since the start of the 2012 season, Bryant is tied for first in the NFL with 25 touchdown catches, ranks sixth in receiving yards with 2,615 and seventh in receptions, totalling  185.
