Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) can't make a catch in the end zone as Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Rasul Douglas (32) defends during the second half of an NFL football game on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, in Philadelphia. (Smiley N. Pool/The Dallas Morning News)No one has said publicly that Dez Bryant must agree to a pay cut to remain with the Cowboys. But each comment on the matter continues to inch closer to that reality. The latest is from Stephen Jones.
DeMarcus Lawrence will remain with the Cowboys. The only question is if it will be with a franchise tag or a long-term contract. "We won't let D-Law not be a Dallas Cowboy next year,'' executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "We'll get that straight right now.'' "We're going to do everything we can to make something work then if we don't get it done, we'll franchise him and we'll go back to work. We'd like to not have that franchise tag hanging out there.''

(Tom Fox/The Dallas Morning News)The linebacker is a free agent. Lawrence is also a free agent but Jones has said the club will use the franchise tag to prevent him from hitting the open market.
Dez Bryant says on 105.3 The Fan he hasn’t spoken to his agent or Cowboys about his contract for 2018. Spoke about being respected. Asked if he would take a pay cut if that reduction still respected his value to team, Bryant says that’s a conversation to have w/ Jones & agent.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
