Ezekiel Elliott isn't the first Dallas Cowboys star to have some tough negotiations with owner Jerry Jones - far from it, of course. The Cowboys have had several major contract negotiations over the years, from Emmitt Smith to Tony Romo to Dez Bryant.

Bryant, one of the Cowboys wide receivers this century, went through some contract negotiations with Dallas' front office.

The All-Pro wide receiver eventually agreed to a five-year, $70 million contract with $45 million in guaranteed money and a $20 million signing bonus in July 2015.

Bryant confirmed a classic Jerry Jones negotiating story on Twitter on Wednesday night.

Bryant saw this story on Twitter on Wednesday evening and confirmed that it happened.

"This is a fact.. 100% correct," he tweeted.

That's some pretty good insight into Jerry Jones' negotiating tactics, and solid proof to why some agents probably aren't big fans of the Dallas Cowboys owner.

The Cowboys are currently going through some major negotiations with Ezekiel Elliott. Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper are seeking new deals, too.

Dallas opens its 2019 season on Sunday, Sept. 8 against the New York Giants.
