COPY-AP source: Cowboys, Dez Bryant agree to deal before deadline

IRVING, Texas (AP) - A person close to the negotiations says Dez Bryant has agreed to a five-year, $70 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys.

The deal with the All-Pro receiver broke a stalemate that lasted months, and ended about an hour before the Wednesday deadline to get a multiyear deal done. The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been announced, provided the terms to The Associated Press.

Bryant had threatened to skip training camp and regular-season games without a contract to replace the $12.8 million offer for one year he had under the franchise tag.
