Cardinals, Colts, Cowboys, Chargers, Bucs On Adrian Peterson's List

Mar 4, 2015 4:59 PM

Adrian Peterson would consider a restructuring of his contract to help facilitate a trade.

"All the options are open," Nelson Peterson said of those scenarios. "There's no doors closed on anything at this time. … Adrian will come back from this with a vengeance. He plays hard anyway, but he's got an extra chip on his shoulder. He will bounce back from this."

Peterson would prefer a move to the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts, Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers or Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings are meeting on Wednesday to discuss next steps.

DeMarco Murray Likely To Re-Sign With Cowboys If Offer Is Competitive

Mar 3, 2015 3:29 PM

DeMarco Murray will likely remain with the Dallas Cowboys if they make an offer equal to or similar to those he receives from other teams.

With quality teams potentially looking for a starting running back, Murray is expecting a "vigorous" free-agent market.

Murray made just $1.4 million in 2014, ranking 23rd among running backs.

Murray led the NFL in rushing with 1,845 yards on 392 carries, along with 13 touchdowns. Murray also had 57 receptions and 416 receiving yards.

Cowboys To Use Franchise Tag On Dez Bryant By Monday's Deadline

Feb 28, 2015 5:09 PM

The Dallas Cowboys expect to use the franchise tag on Dez Bryant by Monday's deadline.

"I still think that it's probably, you know, would be a stretch to think that we would have something done by Monday and beat the franchise-tag deadline," Stephen Jones said. "Looks like we're eyeing a franchise tag on Dez, but certainly won't stop us from working hard to get a long-term deal."


The Cowboys were close to a "Cowboy-for-Life" deal with Bryant back in late October, but negotiations went back to square one as Bryant fired agent Eugene Parker in favor of Tom Condon, who the Cowboys front office met with this past week.

"Jerry Sr. and myself actually had a meeting with Tom Condon, his agent, Tuesday night." Jones said. "Had a good long visit."

Police Responded To Dez Bryant Incident At Walmart In 2011

Feb 26, 2015 7:49 PM

The alleged Dez Bryant video is believed to have occurred in 2011 and could leak in the near future.

A report filed by the Lancaster (Texas) Police Department described the response by an officer to "an unknown disturbance" in a Walmart parking lot during the early morning of July 11. Vehicles registered to Bryant were at the scene in the parking lot, and Bryant later arrived in another car, when he was spoken to by a Lancaster PD officer.

Upon further investigation, "it was determined that there was no offense" and "all parties were advised they were free to go."

Officials from the Dallas Cowboys have been aware of this incident for some time.

Schefter Has Been Investigating Dez Bryant Video Since September

Feb 25, 2015 2:02 PM

Adam Schefter has revealed he's been working on reporting the alleged Dez Bryant video since September.

Schefter said he knows what is on the video.

The video is believed to contain footage of Bryant committing an assault.

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly concerned about giving Bryant a long-term contract because of the existence of the video.

Schefter believes the Cowboys will certainly keep Bryant for 2015 and also indicates there's a good chance DeMarco Murray will re-sign as well.

Feb 21, 2015 7:06 PM

Rolando McClain is facing a four-game fine for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, according to multiple sources.

The fine could affect the type of contract McClain receives even if it will not keep him off the field to start the 2015 season. 

The Cowboys acquired McClain in a trade from the Baltimore Ravens last July and saw him start 12 games and finish second on the team with 81 tackles.

Florio: Incriminating Video Of Dez Bryant Giving Cowboys Concerns

Feb 20, 2015 2:13 PM

An incriminating video of Dez Bryant reportedly exists and is part of the reason why the Dallas Cowboys are reluctant to commit long-term money to him this offseason.

“It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the media,’’ Mike Florio said. “A story that all of the major insiders know about, known about it for months, involving a video tape. … (and the) Cowboys are aware of it.’' 

Florio was asked what impact the "awareness" has.

“Because of that and possible other reasons,’’ Florio reports, “the Cowboys been very reluctant to commit major money to him. I don’t know that (the video) does exist … it relates to off-field concerns … that’s just the chatter, that there’s video … and the Cowboys are afraid it will come out and have a Ray Rice-like type of an impact. … People think that’s what’s keeping the Cowboys from a long-term commitment.’'

Bryant responded on Twitter with the following statement:

"Just quit with the b.s... It's clear as day what's going on... I might need to a exclusive interview about my life these past 5 years since the world is destined to know.. I use to let people take advantage of my life. Now that I'm no longer allowing that to happen, it seems to be a problem... I'm not ashamed of none of my past incidents because that's what made me who I am today."
