Dallas Cowboys news: Dez Bryant wants to be a Cowboy for life

The next big name player that the Dallas Cowboys need to lock up is Dez Bryant, whose contract with the team ends in 2015. According to TMZ on Feb. 2, Bryant told them that he doesn't even think about leaving the Cowboys.

TMZ asked Bryant if he would consider playing for an NFC East rival like Washington or Philadelphia and he said he would never consider it. The reason he said it would never happen is because he plans to play for the Dallas Cowboys his entire career.

Bryant is working under a five-year $11.8 million contract. Comparatively, Miles Austin is in the middle of a seven-year, $54.1 million contract, so you can expect that Bryant - twice the receiver that Austin is - to get a huge raise in the next year or two.

Bryant is most compared to Detroit Lions' receiver Calvin Johnson. With the Detroit Lions' former offensive coordinator Scott Lineham now calling plays for Dallas, it is exciting to see how Bryant will play in his system.

Johnson is playing under a seven year, $113.45 million contract.

Seeing those numbers, Dallas may want to work on locking up Dez Bryant now because if he explodes in Linehan's system, he will be a $100 million man. Bryant said he wants to be a Dallas Cowboys star forever and said it will stay that way. It will just be a matter of time to see how much Dallas feels he is worth.
