Dez Bryant has stayed out of trouble both on and off the field in recent years, but maturity certainly used to be an issue for the Dallas Cowboys star.
Bryant revisited some of his past behavior with the media after the Cowboys were visited by Indianapolis 500 winner Takuma Sato.
Bryant was asked about the fastest he’s ever driven, and his answer did not disappoint.
“When I first got my license, I got it suspended for a year because I was going a little bit too fast, if you know,” Bryant said. “The fastest I have been, I have gone probably about 180.”
Bryant was driving his Bentley, and he was pulled over by the police. However, he wasn’t given a ticket.
“When I got pulled over it was pretty cool,” Bryant said. “The cop said ‘I couldn’t catch you. I had to turn my lights off to get up with you.’ He didn’t give me a ticket. He thought it was pretty cool, too. It was good. He was a good sport.”
That’s not exactly the best look for Bryant or the policeman who let him go, but at least Bryant has matured and isn’t reckless anymore.
The Cowboys will need Bryant to remain as one of the best receivers in the NFL if they are going to be a Super Bowl contender next season.
