Last week, in the days before Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas got their new, long-term contracts, reports surfaced that the NFL Players Association was looking at pursuing collusion charges against the Cowboys and Broncos.
Based on a conversation executive vice president Stephen Jones had with Bryant, the Players’ Association believed the Cowboys and Broncos had contact regarding their respective disgruntled receivers--which would constitute collusion.
If Bryant and Thomas didn’t get new deals, we were told, those charges would be pursued.
Bryant and Thomas did get new deals, of course, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve heard the end of this.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the NFLPA is still deciding whether or not to proceed with the collusion charges, and the notice for the two teams to preserve any contact they’ve had remains in place.
