Cowboys' Jerry Jones admits feeling disappointed over Bryant contract situation

Football News

Dallas Cowboys are currently going through one of their most difficult offseasons in decades.

The Cowboys are currently trying their best to retain two of their most prized assets - Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray.

Both offensive stars were a key part of a Dallas team that got to within a controversial call of the NFC Championship Game in January, and Jones has previously admitted that he wants both players to return.

However, Bryant is much more likely to be with the Cowboys next season after the franchise took the decision to value the wideout higher than Murray.

But just because the Cowboys are willing to pay big to keep Dez in Dallas, it doesn't mean that it's enough.

Jerry Jones disappointed

Both parties have failed to come to an agreement with regards to the details of Bryant's next contract, and it's believed that this will give Dallas no option but to place the franchise tag on the league-leading receiver.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted his disappoint at Dallas's lack of progress with Bryant at the NFL Scouting Combine, and claimed that nobody really benefits from the franchise tag.

"I can tell you I'm not that excited about the franchise tag with Dez simply because I'd like to have our agreement and our business in place for a long time to come with Dez," Jones said, via ESPN's Todd Archer.

Late agreement 

Although he claimed it's highly likely that Dallas will franchise tag Bryant in the coming weeks, Jones did admit that he wouldn't be surprised if Bryant and the Cowboys came to some kind of eleventh hour agreement.

"Both sides want a deal that runs well past 2015, but it's evident that it probably won't get done before the March 2 deadline to place the tag on Bryant. Jones also said don't rule out Bryant and the team suddenly coming to an agreement in the 11th hour, either," reported.
