(ESPN.com) — As the NFL deadline approaches for franchise players to sign multiyear contracts, wide receiver Dez Bryant has attempted to increase the pressure on the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys receiver tweeted Monday that he won’t report to the team unless he has a long-term deal.
The tweet comes on the heels of a phone call he recently made to the team to communicate the same message, according to league sources.
The wide receiver personally informed Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones that he will not attend training camp and will sit out regular-season games unless they reach agreement on a long-term deal before Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline, the sources said.
