Dez Bryant's agent Tom Condon says his client is willing to miss regular season games if he does not receive a long-term contract extension from the Dallas Cowboys.
Condon went on Sirius XM Radio Tuesday to affirm that Bryant is serious, adding that there have been no conversations with the Cowboys regarding a new contract. Dallas used the franchise tag on Bryant in March, worth $12.823 million this season. The All-Pro wide receiver has yet to sign it, leaving open the possibility of a holdout. Dallas has until July 15 to sign him to a long-term deal.
Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones has said he is unconcerned about Bryant holding out.
Bryant caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and a league-leading 16 touchdowns last season. The 26-year-old was named AP first-team All-Pro and made his second Pro Bowl. The Cowboys went 12-4 and won the NFC East before narrowly falling to Green Bay in the NFC divisional round.
