Dez Bryant wants to remain with Cowboys, but won’t entertain pay cut
Dez Bryant says he wants to remain with the Cowboys. But he’s not giving them a discount in 2018.
The Cowboys receiver is having one of the worst seasons of his eight-year career with a career-low in yards per reception. But when asked if he’d accept a reduction in pay to remain with the team in 2018, he answered, Hell no.
Carroll previously said that both players will face decisions about playing again but didn’t express as much pessimism about their football futures as he did Tuesday. He answered in the affirmative when asked if it’s a quality-of-life issue for both players as they weigh their decisions.
I think so for both those guys, he said. Yeah. I think there are concerns.
Cleary, 27, went undrafted in 2013, but proceeded to have stints with several teams, including the Giants in 2015 and the Cowboys in 2016. He is in his first season with the Lions after signing with Detroit on Sept. 12.
The Dolphins scored a touchdown with 1:56 left and recovered the ensuing onside kick, but Jordan Poyer’s interception sealed the win.
Taylor went 19 for 27 for 204 yards and one score. In six games against Miami, he has 10 touchdown passes and no interceptions.
For the Dolphins, the season finale had the feel of an exhibition game, with thousands of empty seats and David Fales giving a lengthy, unimpressive audition as a potential backup quarterback in 2018. Miami was eliminated a week ago and will sit out the playoffs for the eighth time in the past nine years.
I guess it’s a little perplexing, defensive end Cameron Wake said.
