Dallas Cowboys Offseason: Dez Bryant is absent in voluntary workouts

Twenty-five teams, including Dallas, will start their voluntary workouts on Monday. One of the many players to miss the voluntary workouts is Dallas’ wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Bryant will not be in the conditioning workout because he needs to sign his franchise tag first. This move of Bryant is not new to all because other players in the past with a franchise tag are working to get a longer and better contract.

Dez Bryant was slapped with a franchise tag on March. Owner Jerry Jones issued a statement last month, saying:

“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. But the franchise is there for a reason and situations like this are what everyone had in mind.”

Bryant will make $12.823 million this season if he signs the tag. However, Bryant’s agent might be in negotiations with the Cowboys.

Cowboys’ cornerback Orlando Scandrick will not be in the workouts. Scandrick’s absence might have something to do about his contract. The cornerback is about to make $1.5 million this season.

Bryant is one of the key wide receivers that Tony Romo relied on last season. Bryant believes that he deserves better than a franchise tag. Dallas is one of the teams to watch for this upcoming season. What the Cowboys accomplished last year might be improved in the upcoming season.
