Jones said the Cowboys will likely look for a wide receiver in this weekend's draft who can contribute right away but wouldn't commit to selecting one in the first two rounds.

Bryant had been slated to make $12.5 million and count $16.5 million against the cap in 2018.

According to National Football League reporter Ed Werder, the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver wants a one-year deal to prove himself before hitting free agency again next year.

Amidst the commotion of the three-day NFL Draft that takes place later this week at the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium, on Friday Amazon will release its behind-the-scenes "All or Nothing" program which follows the Cowboys throughout their eventful 2017 season.

Dez Byrant had the opportunity to become a Raven, but he apparently decided against it. If you're Bryant, it seems like a risky move to turn down that kind of money.

According to Werder, Bryant is basically betting on himself to have a huge 2018 season. Baltimore wanted him because could only afford to fit a multi-year deal under their cap. "An enormous amount of thanks goes out to the Cowboys organization for their cooperation in filming throughout the season". He wants to sign a one-year deal, instead of a multi-year deal, so he can sign another huge contract in 2019.

Bryant amassed more than 1,000 yards receiving, with double-digit touchdowns, for three straight seasons from 2012 to 2014. Not to mention, Bryant has now gone 22 games without hitting the 100-yard mark.
