Reports: Cowboys, Dez Bryant agree to new $70 million deal

Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed on a new five-year, $70 million deal, according to multiple reports.

ESPN and NFL Network reporters tweeted on Wednesday that Bryant would get $45 million guaranteed as part of the new contract. They earlier reported that negotiations had gotten far enough along for Bryant to travel to the team’s Valley Ranch headquarters on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cowboys later tweeted out photos of Bryant signing his contract and holding his new contract with one of the team's vice presidents, Charlotte Jones-Anderson.

If the 26-year-old Bryant hadn't sign a contract by 3 p.m. CT on Wednesday, he wouldn't have been able to sign a long-term contract until after the season.

Bryant posted a message on Twitter on Monday, apologizing while saying he "will not be there" if he didn't have a new deal by Wednesday's deadline.

"As much as I love football ... I apologize #cowboynation but I will not be there if no deal," wrote Bryant, who skipped offseason workouts and has said he would consider missing games.
