Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is mulling skipping the team's season opener if he does not receive a long-term contract extension before July 15, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports

The Cowboys used their franchise tag on Bryant this off-season, but Bryant has not yet signed the tag, which would pay him $12.823 million this season. Bryant has until July 15 to negotiate a long-term contract. 

Bryant recorded 88 receptions for 1,320 yards and a league-leading 16 touchdowns last season, after which he was named first-team All-Pro. Bryant also made his second Pro Bowl. 

Bryant, who is entering his sixth season in the NFL, has not taken part in the team's off-season program, though he did participate in one OTA last month.

The Cowboys finished 12-4 last year, winning the NFC East and defeating the Detroit Lions in the NFC wild card round before falling at the Green Bay Packers in the NFC divisional round.
