According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the feeling at Valley Ranch is that the Cowboys remain committed to wide receiver Dez Bryant despite his recent mall incident and string of lawsuits for unpaid jewelry. Sources tell Breer that there’s plenty of in-house concern, but owner Jerry Jones has “built a bridge” with Bryant, and is a believer in second and third chances.
One team source observed that Bryant has a “lack of life skills” at age 22. Another says he’s “never seen that before” when talking about Bryant’s on-field talent. Said a third source, “A lot of it is not his fault, it’s because of the way he was brought up. He’s got a good heart, and the best intentions, but all this stuff happens and it takes away from that.”
