Dez Bryant says its 'Cowboys forever' as Dallas free agency decision looms

Dez Bryant's pending free agency remains one of the key issues the Dallas Cowboys front office must solve this offseason but, judging by the star wide receiver's most recent comments, things are looking positive from a Cowboys perspective.

Cowboys commitment

Speaking at a recent charity basketball event this weekend, Bryant emphasised his close connection with the franchise - insisting "it's Cowboys forever" regardless of the what happens in the coming months.

While there is no deal imminent Bryant did go on to offer Cowboys fans hope that they will again see him in a Dallas uniform come the 2015 season.

"Regardless, I'm a Cowboy," Dez Bryant told NBC 5 Sports reporter Pay Doney on Saturday.

"It is what it is. It's business. I am a free agent. I'm very confident that something is going to happen (with Dallas), something is going to get done, and have these Cowboys fans excited for a long time."

The comments will come as a relief to Cowboys fans - most of whom are desperate to see their team go all out to keep Tony Romo's top target.

After months of to-and-fro from both Bryant and Dallas about the player's future - negotiations being put on hold for a long part of the 2014 season - this latest move certainly shows that, for now at least, the WR is pledging his allegiances to the Cowboys.

More hurdles left to jump

Just because Dez Bryant is saying the right things though does not automatically mean that a deal will materialize. With Dallas also needing to deal with DeMarco Murray's free agency it remains to be seen whether Jerry Jones is prepared to pay Bryant the money his talents deserve or if the front office decide to pay 2014's leading rushing.

It is unlikely they can do both.

Calvin Johnson ($16.2 million) is currently the top paid receiver in the NFL but with Bryant coming off the back of his most productive season (1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns) you can guarantee he will be expecting to earn somewhere in the same region.

What do you think Dallas fans? Would you rather keep Murray or Bryant? Is there any way both will be back in Cowboys colors in 2015? Let us know in the comments section below...
