Dallas Cowboys

Bryant is with his Dallas Cowboys teammates for the last day of their minicamp. Bryant didn't practice Thursday since he still has not signed his franchise tender that would guarantee him $12.8 million this season.

The All-Pro receiver sat with teammates in the stands at the Cowboys' stadium when coach Jason Garrett addressed the team before the final organized workout until training camp in California next month. He later tossed a football on the sideline.

As expected, Bryant is a no-show for the start of the Dallas Cowboys mandatory offseason minicamp.

Bryant has not signed his franchise tag, and there is only a month before the deadline for the Pro Bowl receiver to work out a long-term deal with the Cowboys or play this season for $12.8 million. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that Bryant is working hard on his own and that his absence isn't a unique situation for a player with the franchise tag.

Reports are circulating that Bryant will skip the opener against the Giants if he doesn't have his contract situation resolved.

Don't believe the hype, fantasy owners. Expect Bryant to be on the field to take advantage of a woeful New York defense and go ahead and start him.

Bryant will get four more months to work on a long-term deal with the Cowboys and make $12.8 million next year after the team used its franchise tag on the star wide receiver.

Bryant led the NFL with a club-record 16 touchdowns in the final year of a rookie contract that paid $11.8 million over five years.
