Cowboys' Bryant warns he won't play without long-term deal

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is sending another signal that he won't play without a long-term contract.

Bryant posted a message on Twitter to Dallas fans Monday, apologizing while saying he "will not be there" if he doesn't have a new deal by Wednesday's deadline.

The All-Pro, who led the NFL with 16 touchdowns receiving last season, has a one-year offer of $12.8 million under the franchise tag. Because he hasn't signed a contract, Bryant can't be fined for missing training camp, which starts July 30. He would lose about $750,000 for each regular-season game he skipped.

"As much as I love football ... I apologize #cowboynation but I will not be there if no deal," wrote Bryant, who skipped offseason workouts and has said he would consider missing games.
