The July 15 deadline for four players to agree on a long-term contract is approaching. If they don't, the team will impose the franchise tag. Bengals safety Jessie Bates and Chiefs offensive tackle Orlando Brown have all made it clear that they do not want to be paid under the franchise tag.
Mike Garafolo, NFL Media's reporter, reports that Dalton's representative will "make another attempt at it", with hopes of reaching an agreement within the week.
Eight players were tagged but Davante Adam, Cam Robinson and Chris Godwin signed long-term contracts.
