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.

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.
