Dallas Cowboys lockup rookie Dez Bryant to five-year deal

The Dallas Cowboys have been no strangers to controversy over the years and this upcoming NFL season will be no different as flamboyant Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made another bold move by drafting arguably the most controversial player in the 2010 NFL Draft in Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Much like many great wide receivers, Bryant comes with a big mouth, an attitude towards authority and an enormous amount of talent with potential to be a perennial Pro Bowler written all over him.

There is no doubting the talent of his young kid out of Oklahoma State, but the exception of Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin, the Dallas Cowboys haven’t had much luck with controversial wideouts like Terrell Owens and Roy Williams.

Next season will be an interesting one of the Dallas Cowboys as they will have
everything going for them to contend for a Super Bowl title, but they will have plenty of questions regarding the wide receiver position and what players to put in the starting lineup.

Even though there is no doubt that Miles Austin will be the number one wide receiver followed by Roy Williams in the second spot for the Dallas Cowboys next season, the third wideout in the offense is apparently up for grabs with Patrick Crayton and rookie Dez Bryant battling it out for depth chart position.

Most people believed initially that Crayton would have the advantage over Bryant as he has the experience and already knows the offense like the back of his hand, but apparently it seems as though the rookie might get the nod as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has avoided a holdout by Bryant by agreeing to terms way ahead of scheduled.

Reportedly, Dez Bryant has agreed to a five-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys for about $11.8 million dollars in which $8.5 million is guaranteed.

This is a pretty sweet deal for the promising young wide receiver as it was uncertain how much he would get in terms of guaranteed money after falling to the 24th pick in the NFL Draft.

Next season will be intriguing to say the least for the Dallas Cowboys as they will have a lot of pressure on them to win once again. Not only will they have a chance to make history by being the first NFL team to ever play a Super Bowl on their home field, but they will have perhaps one of the most dynamic offenses in the league led by perennial Pro Bowl quarterback Tony Romo.

Along with Tony Romo (three-time Pro Bowl quarterback) behind center, the Cowboys will have Miles Austin (one-time Pro Bowl wide receiver), Roy Williams (one-time Pro Bowl wide receiver), Dez Bryant (rookie wide receiver) and Jason Witten (six-time Pro Bowl tight end) in the passing game and both Marion Barber (one-time Pro Bowl running back) and Felix Jones (three-time NFL rookie of the week) coming out of the backfield.

Needless to say, the Dallas Cowboys offense will be scary sight for any opposing defense next season and could be headed to a Super Bowl appearance at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
