NFLPA believes Cowboys, Broncos had contact about wideouts' deals

The NFL Players Association is reviewing information to determine whether there was collusion between the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys on the unsettled contractual situations of respective franchise wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant, an NFLPA official said.

The players' association says it believes the Broncos and Cowboys had contact about each player's contract. The collective bargaining agreement prohibits such contact.

The NFLPA now is trying to determine whether collusion did occur and when to file a potential a claim.

The Cowboys declined comment on the issue. One source connected to team didn't believe any contact between Dallas and Denver occurred.

The deadline for both Thomas and Bryant to sign long-term deals is Wednesday.
