Dez Bryant won’t get his contract extension before the season opener. He has said he will ask his agent to cease negotiations once the 49ers game kicks off.

Bryant reiterated Thursday that he won’t let playing out the final year of his deal be a distraction.

"Man, look, it’s like this: My mind is focused on San Fran," he said. "It’s the only thing it’s focused on. All the other stuff is going to take care of itself, I promise."

Bryant, the 24th overall pick in 2010, will make $1.78 million, plus a $250,000 workout bonus, in the final year of his rookie deal.

He and owner Jerry Jones met twice last week to talk contract, but the sides have yet to come to agreement on structure, bonus or guaranteed money.

"Truthfully, it’s been great talks," Bryant said. "But still, I’m not really into that right now. We got a game in a couple days."

 Bryant said a new deal will have to wait until the offseason if it isn’t done by Sunday.

"Man, let me tell you something, done is done," Bryant said. "If I say it’s done, it’s done."
