Dallas Cowboys news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 26 Feb 2015 05:53:41 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is likely to receive the franchise tag because the team is hesitant to sign him long term due to a lack of trust off the field. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport discovered via an open-records request that Bryant was involved in an "unknown disturbance" in a Walmart parking lot July 11, 2011. Upon further investigation, "it was determined that there was no offense" and "all parties were advised they were free to go." The team has known about this incident for a while. However, Bryant has had the police called to his home six different times since 2011. None of the calls resulted in any arrests.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant is clearly one of the top five receivers in football. These reports are concerning, but it's important to remember no arrests were made. He's still worth a late first-round pick in traditional drafts.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's NFL career could be in jeopardy if a video he allegedly appears is as bad as it sounds. A source said the "incriminating video of Dallas Cowboys superstar receiver Dez Bryant is being released today or tomorrow, and is so bad it's "five times worse than the Ray Rice video and that his football career is in jeopardy." The Cowboys have claimed no such video exists.
Fantasy Tip: This is huge news for fantasy owners everywhere, if it turns out to be true, but more importantly it is huge news for the NFL. They simply cannot have another one of its stars embroiled in a nasty controversy, whatever the exact details may be. It sounds like we'll soon find out. It sounds as if the rumored video is what has been holding up negotiations with the impending free agent and the Cowboys. Remember, this is all speculation at this point.

Dallas Cowboy CB Brandon Carr may need to take a paycut this offseason if he wants to stay with the Cowboys. Carr would count $12.7 million against the salary cap and could very well be cut if he does not take less money.

Fantasy Tip: Murray carried the ball 392 times in 2014 so it is understandable the team would want to lighten his load, but this may be a case of easier said than done. Joseph Randle has faced legal troubles and Lance Dunbar is a free agent, so the team may not have a choice. As long as he stays healthy like this, Murray is a strong RB1 in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has reportedly received an offer from the team, but the Cowboys have not heard back from Bryant's agent. If Bryant does not sign a long-term deal, he could very well be franchise tagged.
Fantasy Tip: It's highly unlikely that Bryant will be leaving Dallas this offseason. He remains a WR1 option and could even be considered the top fantasy football wideout in 2015. Stay tuned to this situation as free agency approaches.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Dez Bryant remains a candidate for the franchise tag if the team can't work out a long-term extension with him. The Cowboys still have concerns about Bryant's off-the-field issues.
Fantasy Tip: Bryant will be returning to Dallas next year, it's just unknown if it'll be on a one-year franchise tag or a long-term commitment. Regardless, he's proven to be one of the most dominant wideouts in the game, and he should be ranked as the top wideout in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: As long as the Cowboys believe, so should fantasy owners. Romo is a solid QB1 option across the board as long as he stays healthy.
