With the deadline less than an hour away, Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboyshave agreed to a five-year, $70 million deal that will pay him an average $14 million per season, league sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Bryant's contract includes $45 million in guaranteed money. Under the franchise tender, he was set to make $12.8 million for the 2015 season but had threatened to miss training camp and some regular season games if he did not have a long-term in deal in place by the 4 p.m. ET deadline for franchise-tagged players to negotiate a multi-year contract.
Specific language of the contract was not immediately available but Bryant was at the Cowboys facility to physically sign the deal as the Cowboys negotiators work with his contract representative, Tom Condon.
