It appears Dez Bryant wasn’t messing around earlier this offseason when he said he’d sit out if he’s not signed to a long-term contract.

The Dallas Cowboys’ star receiver, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, informed Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones that he has until Wednesday to sign him to a long-term deal. If no deal is reached, he threatens to miss camp along with regular season games.

It appears the two sides still aren’t close, despite Dallas’ reported optimism that a deal would get done soon after the Fourth of July.
