Enough talking about a potential new contract for Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver Dez Bryant because there is the chance that one really might be in the works.

Bryant reported to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that there is a “big chance” that he could get get one as the Cowboys have made some progress on a deal (h/t NFL.com).
According to ESPNDallas.com, Bryant further commented..
I don’t want to talk about it anymore. Put it behind me. I love this game. Either way, I feel like I can’t be distracted once I’m on the football field.
While the chances of agreeing on a new contract before the start of the season are slim, it would appear Bryant is full-steam ahead on playing his best this season, which would only increase his price tag.
Keep in mind that Bryant could lead the league in receiving yards and targets due to the fact the Cowboys’ defense is awful and playing catch-up through the air will be a must this season.
