The Dallas Cowboys have been reluctant to offer star wide receiver Dez Bryant a long-term deal, and according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, it's because of a videotape the Cowboys have of Bryant relating to "off-field concerns":
**UPDATE: The Cowboys have said they have no knowledge of a video**
"It's one of the best-kept secrets in the media," Florio said on 105.3 The Fan's "Shan & RJ" show Friday. "A story that all of the major insiders know about, known about it for months, involving a videotape. ... (and the) Cowboys are aware of it. Because of that and possible other reasons 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 sent out a vague, cryptic tweet Friday morning, and it's rumored that he's talking about whatever this issue is.

Bryant has made his frustrations about not receiving a long-term deal from the Cowboys well-known, especially after Dallas announced plans to use their franchise tag on him. However, it seems that whatever the Cowboys have is troubling enough that they won't commit to one of the top three receivers in the NFL long-term.
