Oklahoma State Football: T. Boone Pickens Jokingly Offers Newly-Signed Dez Bryant Chance To Name Stadium After Himself

Current Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant played his home games at Boone Pickens Stadium as a member of the Oklahoma State Cowboys from 2007-09. The stadium has been named after business mogul and OSU alumnus T. Boone Pickens since 2003. 

Today, Bryant signed a fresh, five-year, 70-million dollar contract with Dallas, with $45 million guaranteed. Shortly after inking the new deal, Bryant received congratulations on Twitter from Pickens, who jokingly offered a share of naming rights.

">@DezBryant #OKState proud of you. We’re both rich now. Want in on #OKState football stadium? “Pickens/Bryant Stadium” Not cheap though.

Pickens-Bryant has a decent ring to it. Dez doesn't have the money to be in Boone's league though, at least not yet.
