Dez Bryant
Meeting with Jones imminent
Bryant will meet with owner Jerry Jones by the end of the week, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

With cap hits of $16.5 million both of the next two seasons, Bryant has hit a crossroads with the Cowboys. The organization will have to open its pocketbooks for the likes of DeMarcus Lawrence -- who received the franchise tag this offseason -- Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott in the next few years, so the team's highest-paid skill-position player appears to be the primary candidate for a restructured contract. The upcoming talks come on the heels of three underwhelming and occasionally injury-plagued campaigns. While missing 10 of a possible 48 contests during that stretch, he averaged 3.9 receptions for 53.6 yards (6.8 YPT) per game and scored 17 touchdowns. As an insurance policy, management reached agreement on deals with Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson last month and will have opportunities to address the situation during the upcoming draft. If Bryant isn't receptive to changes on his current deal, the Cowboys may pursue a drastic measure, such as his release.
