“As much as I love football...on my beautiful babies…I apologize #cowboynation but I will not be there if no deal #fact,” is what Bryant Tweeted on Monday. Earlier in the day Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones denied that Bryant had threatened to hold out of regular season games, but apparently that’s exactly what the receivers plans to do.

The NFL’s window for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term extensions closes on Wednesday. After the deadline passes, the only option for players that were franchise-tagged is to play out the year on a one-year deal. For Bryant, that one-year deal would be at $12.82 million. He could also do what Vincent Jackson did in 2010, which was sit out the first 10 games and return for the final six in efforts to cash in the following year.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cowboys are 10/1 to win the 2016 Super Bowl and 6/1 to win the NFC Conference Championship next season. It’ll be interesting to see if Dallas’ Super Bowl odds will be adjusted if Bryant and the Cowboys can’t come to terms on Wednesday.
