Bryant signs, Cowboys 10/1 to win SB
DALLAS, TX (The Spread) - The Cowboys signed receiver Dez Bryant to a five-year, $70 million contract extension according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
The deal also includes $45 million in guaranteed money and will be worth $14 million annually. That annual figure makes Bryant the second-highest paid wideout in the NFL behind only Calvin Johnson. (The Broncos also signed receiver Demaryius Thomas to a five-year, $70 million deal on Wednesday as well.)
On Monday Bryant tweeted, "As much as I love football…on my beautiful babies…I apologize #cowboynation but I will not be there if no deal." The tweeted suggested that Bryant would holdout of training camp and perhaps even regular season games if he didn't receive a long-term deal. Discussion of a holdout is now obviously moot.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cowboys are currently 10/1 to win the 2016 Super Bowl and 6/1 to win the NFC Conference Championship. They're also 5/4 to win the NFC East Division.
