Report: Dez Bryant unlikely to sign before training camp

  Report: Dez Bryant unlikely to sign before training camp Free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant is reportedly finding plenty of interest, but he’s in no rush to sign with a new team.According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Bryant is unlikely to sign before training camp, as he is being very picky about his next destination after being released by the Dallas Cowboys.

Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley, the second overall pick in the 2018 draft, has yet to sign a contract. Of course, his vow to show up for training camp — which necessarily includes a vow to sign the last, best offer on the table as camp opens — gives leverage to the Giants.

But Barkley isn’t worried about that. He says he will be at training camp when it opens, which means he’ll be signing a contract before then.

I forgot I haven’t even signed that yet,” Barkley said Wednesday, via Newsday. “I’m not really focusing on that right now. I’m just focused on having fun and playing football. The way I think about it when I was growing up I didn’t have a contract, I didn’t get money to play, so it doesn’t bother me not having a contract right now.”

Delanie Walker would 'most definitely' welcome Dez Bryant to Titans

  Delanie Walker would 'most definitely' welcome Dez Bryant to Titans Dez Bryant still doesn’t have a job after being released by the Dallas Cowboys in March, but that probably won’t last long once training camps open this summer. Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker definitely wouldn’t mind if this team is the one Bryant ends up signing with for the coming season.Speaking about Bryant during Michael Crabtree’s football camp in Dallas, Walker said he doesn’t understand why Bryant isn’t yet signed. He also said he doesn’t expect him to remain unsigned over the summer.When asked if he’d be open to Bryant potentially joining Tennessee’s roster, he replied, “Most definitely,” per SportsDay.

Rookie running back Saquon Barkley remains unsigned with just days to go until the New York Giants report for training camp. Former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, selected No. 2 overall by the New York Giants in this year’s NFL Draft, is one of seven top-10 picks still unsigned as most

For most rookie deals, there’s nothing to really negotiate. For players taken at the top of the process, the main variables are whether the fully-guaranteed deal will have offset language, and the cash flow of the signing bonus.

“To be honest, I kind of just said to my agent that I really don’t care, you just talk it out,” Barkley said regarding Roc Nation’s Kim Miale. “I think I have the best agent in the world and I know she and the Giants are going to get it done and whenever it’s ready for me to sign, I’ll sign.”

Of course, his vow to show up for training camp — which necessarily includes a vow to sign the last, best offer on the table as camp opens — gives leverage to the Giants. If they choose to squeeze him a little on the lingering negotiable items, he’ll apparently blink. Because he apparently won’t hold out.
