Dallas Cowboys Dez Bryant

Gets franchise tag

2 Mar, 2015

The Cowboys place the¬†franchise tag on Bryant. While the tag secures Bryant’s rights for the 2015 NFL season, the Cowboys are working to sign Bryant to a long-term deal. If they are unable to do so, Bryant will be paid $12.823 million for the 2015 season.¬†However, the Cowboys did not use the exclusive franchise tag on Bryant, so if another team signs him, then they will have to give up two first-round picks.
