One of the more explosive rumors of the 2018 NFL offseason has the Dallas Cowboys moving on from wide receiver Dez Bryant. Dez is set to count against the Boys' books for $16.5 million in 2018, but his production has not aligned with that figure for a few years now. Dallas can save $8.5 million by cutting ties with Bryant prior to June 1, and $12.5 million by designating him a post-June 1 release.

Jerry Jones says you should not expect that to happen. Speaking at the NFL combine on Saturday, Jerry stated that the Cowboys intend to talk to Dez about his contract this offseason, but that he expects Bryant to be with the team next season.

A subsequent report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport indicated that we should not expect a short-term extension that artificially lowers Bryant's 2018 cap hit and keeps him with the Cowboys beyond the length of his current deal.
