Oklahoma State donor offers Dez Bryant co-naming rights on stadium
Dez Bryant got a big new contract from the Cowboys on Wednesday, and his fellow Oklahoma State graduate, billionaire T. Boone Pickens, is congratulating Bryant by inviting him to spend some of his new money.
Pickens is a big donor to Oklahoma State, which was still Oklahoma A&M when he graduated in 1951, and the school's football stadium was re-dedicated as Boone Pickens Stadium in 2003.
Now the oil tycoon and hedge fund manager is offering Bryant a chance to have his name on the field where the receiver starred in college, although he does warn that the price for the naming rights is fairly high.
Even if Bryant plays out his entire five-year, $70 million deal with the Cowboys, he will still have a lot of catching up to do to reach Pickens's reported $1 billion fortune.
