Dez Bryant said he would not be throwing up the X if contract agreements weren’t reached before July 15. “This no rumor; it’s legit,” Bryant told the NFL Network yesterday conforming the talks about Bryant not playing the season opener. Bryant has not signed his franchise tag, which would grantee him $12,823,000 for the 2015 season. The last day to sign franchise-tagged players is July 15. This is the same tactics that Emmit Smith used in 1993 missing the first two games of the season.
In 2014 Bryant caught 88 passes for 1,350 yards and 16 touchdowns. How bad do the Cowboys need the “X”?
