ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dez Bryant couldnt stop smiling at the luxury watches that are more expensive than some cars, far removed from his days as a troubled rookie facing a lawsuit over unpaid jewelry bills. Rashad Vaughn Jersey . The Dallas Cowboys were giving their star receiver the fancy timepiece as a reward for being among just four players chosen to attend a news conference announcing a partnership with the Swiss manufacturer Hublot. Bryant beamed for the cameras during Monday nights ritzy event at the $1.2 billion home of the Cowboys, and then offered one more illustration of his transformation. While reiterating that he wants to be paid like a big-time receiver, he wants negotiations to stop before the Sept. 7 opener against San Francisco with or without deal. Why? Because a player who was the king of distractions four years ago doesnt want to be "distracted" once the regular season starts. "I dont want to talk about it anymore," Bryant said. "Put it behind me. I love this game. Either way, I feel like I cant be distracted once Im on the football field." The fifth-year receiver is entering the final year of his rookie contract after Tyron Smith, drafted a year later and one of the teammates joining him for the watch presentation, recently got an eight-year extension that pushed the value of his deal to more than $100 million. Bryant has a base salary of $1.8 million in 2014, and the average of the highest-paid receivers is around $12 million per year. The 25-year-old believes he belongs in that company. "I believe a player should get paid what he deserves," said Bryant, who is tied for the league lead with 25 touchdowns over the past two seasons. "If Im top five, Im top five. If Im top three, Im top three. If Im top two, Im top two." Owner Jerry Jones, not one to offer many details on negotiations, didnt reject Bryants suggestion that there was a "big chance" a deal could be done by the end of next week. Bryants agent, Eugene Parker, didnt return a call seeking comment. "Hes got a good sense of it," Jones said at Mondays event, which was also attended by tight end Jason Witten and running back DeMarco Murray. "He obviously feels in the right circumstances he wants to get something done. We do, too." Bryants tumultuous first two years with the Cowboys included jewelry lawsuits that were settled, a baggy pants incident at an upscale Dallas mall and a domestic disturbance charge over an incident with his mother. Hes also created stirs with a variety of sideline antics. While the sideline shows are more recent, the brushes with the law are now at least two years old. And he says a big contract wont change him. "Im here to take care of my family," says Bryant, who has two young sons. "Thats all I ever wanted to do, is take care of my family. I know how to survive with nothing." NOTES: QB Caleb Hanie was among 11 players waived or released to get the Cowboys to the 75-player limit. S Matt Johnson, who battled chronic hamstring problems after getting drafted in the fourth round in 2012, and LB DeVonte Holloman were among the injured players waived. Doctors told Holloman last week he should quit football because of a neck condition. ... Rookie DE Ben Gardner (shoulder) was placed on season-ending injured reserve, and DT Amobi Okoye will spend the first six weeks of the season on the non-football illness list. Tony Snell Jersey . The Yankees made the moves before Tuesdays game against Baltimore. Robertson was listed retroactive to Monday. Robertson posted two saves in three games as the replacement for retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before getting hurt. Vin Baker Jersey . On paper, it looks a little like Andre the Giant taking on a midget wrestler. It has all the makings of a rout with the Americans adding an eighth win in nine outings of this biennial event. The Yanks have eight players in the top 15 in the world while the Internationals have just one. http://www.nbabucksproshop.com/Authentic-Matthew-Dellavedova-Bucks-Jersey/ . - Hitting was supposed to be the Pittsburgh Pirates weakness coming into the season yet they lead the major leagues in home runs through the first 16 games of the season.SOCHI, Russia -- The South Korean Olympic Committee has protested the results of the womens figure skating competition, although the sports international governing body has not yet received the letter. Also, International Skating Union rules always have required such protests be filed immediately after the event. The Koreans believe the judging was biased and cost Yuna Kim a second gold medal. The 2010 champion finished wwith silver, behind Russian teenager Adelina Sotnikova. Giannis Antetokounmpo Jersey. IOC spokesman Mark Adams says any figure skating protest is a matter for the ISU to handle. Much of the uproar over the womens free skate centres on what many perceived as a lack of artistry in Sotnikovas program. Yet her marks were comparable or better than those for the highly artistic Kim. Her technical marks were significantly better.
