UPDATE: According to Scott Bischoff, the video does exist and it looks like Bryant is being blackmailed. A new detail has also emerged. The alleged incident was captured on Wal-Mart video surveilance.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has a dirty little secret that may soon be revealed. It's so bad that some are saying it's worse than former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice's situation.
A videotape containing Dez's misbehavior does in fact exist, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter appeared on the "Carmen and Jurko Show" on ESPN 1000 in Chicago Wednesday and when asked about the tape he did confirm the existence, but did not go into details as to what he has heard.
"I've been working on this since September," Schefter said. "It's taken up a lot of my time this season, I'll say that.
"Well, listen, whatever we've been working on is not ready and maybe it never will be. Who knows? You've got to be very careful on these things. People can talk about videos, they can talk about this, they can talk about that. The fact of the matter is, it doesn't mean anything and it's really not fair to him right now until you have all your facts in line. Which we spent a long time trying to do."
I don't think one of the best football reporters in the business would waste so much time if there wasn't a video. Something is out there, but who knows when/if we will actually see it.
The Cowboys have denied the tape's existence, but then again, the NFL and the Ravens denied knowing about the videotape of Rice knocking out his then-fiancee, so we can't trust the team in this situation.
This does not seem like it's going to end well for Bryant.
