02:00 PM ET 07.22 | The Dallas Cowboys are in the process of reaching a stadium naming rights deal with AT&T, sources tell FOXSportsSouthwest.com. The framework of the arrangement -- discussed with the telecommunications giant since the $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium opened four years ago -- once centered on a $25 million-a-year fee. A source said a Farmers Insurance bid of $700 million for a proposed new stadium in LA and the San Francisco 49ers' recent 20-year deal for $220 million "re-set" the framework for conversations. The source also confirmed that the naming rights will go into effect for the 2014 season.
