Former Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant strongly criticized the franchise he used to engage in for on Saturday shortly after news broke thatin former Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. His main gripe was that Dalton was presented a deal ahead of present-day starter Dak Prescott, who has been obtaining difficulty getting an from the Cowboys.
To get the pedantry out of the way, Bryant only “noticed” the Cowboys spend Tony Romo at the time through his time on the workforce. The wideout was on the workforce in 2013 when Romo bought his six-calendar year, $108 million extension, but was 3 years from earning the league when the quarterback bought his six-calendar year, $67.five million extension in 2007. Regardless, his stage nevertheless stands as Jerry Jones opened up the checkbook 2 times for Romo and the 2013 deal was presented after an 8-8 year — coincidentally, the identical file Prescott had in 2019.
When a reporter attempted to obstacle Bryant’s problem on Twitter, the wideout responded in a way that would have a person consider he nevertheless harbors some resentment in direction of two-timing executives.
As a person may well count on every time an athlete shares their impression, Bryant’s replies immediately became inundated with men and women who had been ardently defending the Cowboys finding up a quarterback who has not produced the playoffs considering that 2015. To quell the flames, he available a minor apology.
Prescott was presented the franchise tag by the Cowboys, which, as the firm and the quarterback hash out the specifics of their prolonged term deal.
