Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant recently hinted that he will not stay with his team if he will not be given a long-term contract.

On his Twitter account, Bryant made it clear that he will say goodbye to the Cowboys without that deal.

"As much as I love football...on my beautiful babies.. I apologize #cowboynation but I will not be there if no deal #fact," he tweeted.

ESPN reported that this recent tweet from Bryant is set to put more pressure on the Cowboys to give him a long-term contract.

"The tweet comes on the heels of a phone call he recently made to the team to communicate the same message," noted the same report.

It explained that the wide receiver called Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones that he will not participate in the training camp of the team and will choose to sit out for the regular season games unless a long-term deal is reached.

Jones, however, denied communicating with Bryant and receiving those kind of messages.

According to Yahoo Sports, last year's NFL leader has a one-year offer for $12.8 million but he has not yet signed the said contract.

He will reportedly not be fined if he missed training camp, which is set to begin this July 30. But once he skips a regular season game, he is expected to lose $750,000.

The last time he was seen with the Cowboys was during the June mandatory minicamp where he was seen chatting with team owner Jerry Jones.

ESPN also said in the same report that the Cowboys and Bryant's representatives have had meetings to negotiate his contract.

"They have exchanged proposals once, just before the Fourth of July holiday," the same report.

The wide receiver has expressed his willingness to spend the rest of his career with the Cowboys.

Bryant reportedly argued that he has proven himself "to be the top receiver in the league over the past five years and should be compensated accordingly."

NBC Sports reported that Bryant has until Tuesday "to show up, collect the prorated portion of his franchise tender for the final seven weeks of the season" as stated by the labor deal.

The same report said that Bryant is expected to explain his statement on Twitter, at least to the Cowboys, for them to know what to expect from him.

Come Wednesday, the public will know if the Cowboys are ready to give one of the best players in the league the long-term deal he is clamoring for.
