Drama ends for Cow­boy

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

IRV­ING, Texas - Dez Bryant has the long-term con­tract he said he wouldn’t play with­out, and the Dal­las Cowboys can quit wor­ry­ing about whether he re­ally would skip games. The All-Pro re­ceiver signed a five-year, $70 mil­lion deal Wed­nes­day, af­ter months of pos­tur­ing from both sides and less than an hour be­fore a dead­line that would have re­quired him to play un­der a one-year agree­ment. “There was never a doubt in my mind that we wanted a long-term deal with Dez,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “We just had to get the pot right.”
