Exclamation Dez Byrant - Is this why the Cowboys haven't re-signed?

According to sports blogs — later tonight there will be video released of Dez Byrant that is “5 times worse” than the Ray Rice video

Wonder how this plays out...

Lots of hype, perhaps...Why not just release it? Everybody connected to the Cowboys (what I read earlier today) denies the existence of the video. Somebody didn't pay blackmail?

"Is this why the Cowboys haven't resigned?"

Who, what, where? That is a strange sentence.

I accept you clarification with weary resignation.

This seems really sketchy. In addition, the timing is very suspicious. The Cowboys have until early March to re-sign him or give him the franchise tag. No one has actually seen this video. People are asking for money just to be told what is supposedly on the video. Obviously someone is trying to shake down Dez and is trying to extract as much as they can at the worst possible time. From some of his tweets (now deleted) Dez seems to think there is some potential damage. He is a top WR talent, but he does bring a lot of baggage.

OR is this a Cowboys ruse to get him to sign at a lower price?

I hope for his sake that this is just BS and goes away.

Yeah, I had actually heard about this a while back from a buddy whose friend is local sports reporter. First and foremost, the alleged incident took place back in 2011. He was certainly a tad out of hand back in that time. Hanging out with shady characters and BS. And then, it and he would be past the Statute of Limitations in Texas for an assault (3yrs). So I and many around here feel it's simply a "bargaining chip" being used. But exactly by whom is the question? If the Cowboys, that is some shady shyt. I also find it hard to believe that all involved would be able to keep this under wraps happening in such a public place as Wal-Mart paking lot? And WTF would he even be there for anyway? Also, some in Dez's on camp are saying he is being brainwashed by Jay Z and Roc Nation Sports. Now THAT I can clearly see happening!

Dez is like a WR who played on my team, Desean Jackson. Electrifying and extremely talented, but a big risk big reward kind of guy. He seems to have his act together now though....

I have little respect for Jerry Jones as it is but if he in any way is behind all this then if I was Dez I would pack up and take my services some place else. JJ is already low ballin DeMarco
Murray by hanging Peterson over his head.

I knew this was some BullSh1t!

But I am also starting to suspect that Jerry himself is NOT calling all the shots anymore. It has been known that his oldest son Stephen has been taking more and more control since 2 seasons ago but especially this past season. I would not be surprised if he and his so-called advisers are behind this.
