Dez Bryant has decided he wants a change in his life and has decided to team up with rapper and mogul Jay-Z at Roc Nation Sports.
Bryant, who is in the last season of his five-year rookie deal, obviously wants to be paid as well as he thinks he should as one of the best receivers in the National Football League.
Therefore, the former Oklahoma State standout has ditched his old agent Eugene Parker, in order to sign with the Roc, whom he thinks can negotiate him a better deal.
The move to Roc Nation could throw in a wrench in Bryant's upcoming contract negotiations. According to multiple reports, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn't want Bryant to sign with Roc Nation and Jones will be 'reluctant' to do a deal with them.
Bryant is being paid $1.78 million this season as he plays out the final year of his rookie deal that he signed after the Cowboys selected him with the 24th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
The wide receiver's new deal will likely be for major money. Bryant seriously believes he deserves to be paid like one of the best in the league, so he will be aiming to replicate 7-year, $113million Calvin Johnson is taking home over in Detroit.
"I believe a player should get paid what he deserves," Bryant said in August. "If I'm top five, I'm top five. If I'm top three, I'm top three. If I'm top two, I'm top two. It is what it is."
What's much more likely however is Bryant being franchise tagged, which would see him receive $13 million in 2015.
