Dez Bryant's price point may be too high for the New England Patriots.

That's probably the biggest caveat while mulling a potential fit for Bill Belichick and Bryant, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys. After an offseason where Sammy Watkins and Paul Richardson raked in money with huge contracts, Bryant may be able to demand a significant sum, which would essentially push the Patriots away from the negotiating table.

Dez Bryant hints that he will not sign with highest bidder

  Dez Bryant hints that he will not sign with highest bidder Dez Bryant may not be the same player he was three or four years ago, but he should still receive some respectable contract offers as a potential No. 1 receiver who won’t turn 30 until November. However, it seems like it will take more than just money to sign Bryant.On Sunday, Bryant appeared to indicate that money will not be the biggest factor in his free agency decision when he retweeted the following piece of insight from Mike Fisher of 105.3 The [email protected] next team?

Do Patriots , Dez Bryant make a good match ?

The Cowboys are releasing Bryant in the fourth year of his five-year, $75 million deal. It's hard to know what Bryant would expect in terms of compensation, but the Patriots likely wouldn't be very competitive with the top offers Bryant might get from teams with loads of cap space like the San Francisco 49ers, the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans. If those teams put in offers for Bryant, they could blow the Patriots out of the water.

But if Bryant decided he wanted to play for New England on a "show-me" deal, then the Patriots would probably be interested in bringing him in for a one year deal (or a two-year deal with an easy out after the first year). Bryant would probably have a litany of options to play on a good contract, for a good team, with a good quarterback - perhaps even the Green Bay Packers. It's hard to imagine him deciding that he badly wants to play for New England and Tom Brady. But these sorts of surprises do happen.

Report: Cowboys still hoping to trade for Thomas

  Report: Cowboys still hoping to trade for Thomas Earl Thomas wants to play for the Dallas Cowboys. This is known. According to a report, there is mutual interest in a trade to facilitate that, with the Dez Bryant release being a potential catalyst. When Bryant was released, it freed up $8 million in cap space, which could be utilized to bring in Thomas, and sign him to the extension he desires. “…the Cowboys have contacted the Seahawks about a potential draft trade,” writes Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram. But the Seattle asking price of a first- and third-round draft pick was too high. The Cowboys are holding out hope that their asking price goes down to maybe a second-round pick. And the $8 million cap space they saved by cutting Bryant could be used to pay Thomas, whose base salary for 2018 is a convenient $8.5 million.” Hill also notes that the Cowboys might be hoping Thomas, a native Texan, would be interested in taking a hometown discount on a long-term deal. This scribe thinks that’s probably a bit far-fetched considering how much contract issues have meant to Thomas in the past. But it’s always a consideration, regardless. Thomas played for the Texas Longhorns in college and has made no bones about wanting to play for the Cowboys. This is something to keep an eye on going forward, especially because Seattle has already started blowing things up and needs more draft capital to make moves for the future.

By Phil Perry. / FOXBORO -- Dez Bryant may want to make the Cowboys pay. Let's take a quick look at why the Patriots should make a push for Bryant , acknowledging the player's He forced 14 missed tackles last season, per PFF, which was fifth- best in the league among players at his position.

Dez Bryant wants a one-year deal. Does that put him in play for the Patriots ? New, 36 comments. Which, even if the draft wasn’t today, that’d make perfect sense anyway; the Patriots are currently at ,926,158 in cap space, according to our good buddy PatsCap, and that’s just about exactly in the

The other hurdle for the Patriots would be addressing Bryant's history. He has a reputation as a negative presence in the locker room. Belichick would have to get comfortable with bringing him to New England without the star receiver blowing up the experiment, which is no guarantee.

In terms of fit, Bryant would be an outstanding weapon in the Patriots' already crowded group of offensive skill players, particularly at receiver. After the departure of Brandin Cooks, the Patriots have a need for an outstanding outside receiver who can stretch the defense. Bryant isn't exactly a burner, but he's got a big frame and a physical presence. His skillset is different than any pass-catcher that they have on the roster. In fact, Bryant might be closer to Rob Gronkowski in skill set than he is to any receiver on New England.

Bryant isn't an impossibility to join the Patriots. But the right things would have to fall into place, including finances and Belichick's comfort with signing a player who brings significant off-field baggage.

While Dez Bryant might not be the same player he was earlier in his career, he still totaled 69 receptions for 838 He might not be there when the Patriots make their first pick, but he seems like a good choice to put on the "possibilities" list as he is talented and would project to fill a position of need.
