Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has met several times with wide receiver Dez Bryant to discuss a possible contract extension and wants Bryant with the team for the long-term. But Jones says he doesn't know when an agreement will be reached.
According to ESPN.com, no deal is imminent. Bryant has indicated that he will focus on the season if no deal is done by the team's season opener. Dallas begins the 2014 season Sept. 7 at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
“We have had good visits,” Jones said to ESPN.com. “It’s a little different to be talking directly, for me to be talking directly with the player. I know of two that I’ve spent a lot of time directly talking with in some pretty sensitive areas when you’re talking about money."
