Lawyer Claims Dallas WR Bryant Still Owes Money and a Lawsuit is Pending

Despite claims otherwise by Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant over the weekend, a lawyer said the Cowboys wide receiver still owes more than $600,000 and that a lawsuit is still pending.

“I have a handle on it and it’s done,” Bryant told The Associated Press Saturday at a department store in Tulsa, Okla. “It’s in the past and I’m ready to go ahead from here.”

Attorney Beth Ann Blackwood told Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas on Sunday night, Bryant still owes Colleyville jeweler and ticket broker Eleow Hunt a little more than $600,000 for jewelry, tickets and personal loans

Blackwood said the lawsuit is on hold while Bryant’s attorney — Texas State Senator Royce West — is in special session in Austin.

Bryant is hopeful to settle this lawsuit when the NFL lockout ends, when he’s scheduled to receive a $1 million roster bonus.
