Source: Cowboys' Bryant may need new deal to fix finances

Dez Bryant is headed into the season hoping to put his financial woes of the off-season in his rearview mirror.

But according to a source, Bryant's problems won't be completely solved until he earns more money or signs a new contract.

Bryant faced two lawsuits in the spring seeking more than $850,000 from the Dallas Cowboys receiver. One of the suits was settled, but one is alive in Tarrant County.

In the pending suit, Eleow Hunt, of Colleyville, alleges that Bryant and his adviser, David Wells, owe him about $600,000 for jewelry, sports tickets and repayment of loans.

Bryant, beginning his second season, has four years left on a five-year, $11.8 million contract. He earned $2.84 million in 2010 in salary, signing and roster bonuses. He will make $1.1 million in base salary this season.

"According to court documents, Bryant postponed an Oct. 4 hearing to Oct. 11, but he failed to arrive for Tuesday's hearing at West's office and didn't give a reason.

Bryant had wanted to take care of all court matters on Tuesdays, which is the regular day off for players in the NFL. But because he failed to show up Tuesday, Blackwood's latest motion asks for the settlement hearing to be held on any day."

Ok, so....does this mean that they can now hold a hearing on, say, a Thursday, and Bryant would have to miss practice in order to attend it?

Lets hope this pisses off the judge who's secretly a skins fan and he schedules the follow up hearing for 11/20, and sends the police to make sure he gets there :ols:
