DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys COO Stephen Jones acknowledged Monday that the team still needs to have a conversation with wide receiver Dez Bryant over his contract. 

Jones told media members at the owner's meetings in Florida that now is not the time to have a discussion with the Cowboys star receiver but that it needs to happen. 

It was initially thought that the signing of former Jacksonville Jaguars reciever Allen Hurns would put Dez Bryant's future with Dallas in doubt. However, 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher's sources tell him that the agreement with Hurns is "so affordable" that Dallas intends to also retain Bryant. 

Jones seemed to back that up Monday when he told media members that the signings of Hurns and Deonte Thompson have nothing to do with Bryant's future with the team.

According to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star Telegram, the Cowboys may not be done adding receivers to the roster as Jones wouldn't rule out drafting one in the first round of next month's draft. 

Most mock drafts are projecting Alabama's Calvin Ridley to be selected within the first 20 picks. 

Dallas also has another problem at wide receiver as ESPN's Todd Archer reported Monday that Terrance Williams suffered a broken foot and will miss some offseason activities.
