Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has said that he won’t sign his franchise tender and is willing to sit out. As we have criticized him in a previous story, he continues to say that he’s going to sit out no matter what.

He said that he’s willing to miss time and money if a long-term deal is not reached. Now the Cowboys have stepped up and are reportedly offering him $13 million per season.

His franchise tender, which he hasn’t signed yet, is for $15 million, and has to be signed by 4 pm today. He may be the only player that signs their tender sheet, as he’s reportedly optimistic a deal can get done.

They reportedly made progress last night, and Bryant has a contract that he wants in mind. He believes he deserves one in the neighborhood of Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson’s eight-year, $150.5 million deal.

The Cowboys are reportedly not willing to give up that much money. However, they can always spin it by giving him more guaranteed money up front than money that he’ll have to play to get.

The star wide receiver, who the team elected to go with over running back DeMarco Murray this off-season, has been with the franchise since 2010. Over the past three seasons, he’s had 1,000 plus seasons.

He had 88 receptions for 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns. This was his best season since his career year in 2012 when he had 92 receptions for 1,382 and 12 touchdowns.
