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.
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.
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 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.
