Dez Bryant is one of the most electric wide receivers in the game (the only one I’d take over him is Calvin Johnson) and he’s a free agent after this season. The Cowboys want to sign him to a long-term deal now, but have so far been unsuccessful. Now come the “leaks” questioning Bryant’s character issues. Those leaks just happen to be coming from a media source that is partially owned by the — DALLAS COWBOYS! Coincidence? Hmm.
Among the reasons for concern: Dallas police have been called to Bryant’s home at least six times in four years for things like a robbery at this home, a fire, an unlocked car with a baby inside and a harassment incident. It’s not news that Bryant has had all kinds of problems since coming into the league, but it’s hard to see how a robbery and fire can raise concerns about character.
If you don’t want to sign Bryant, don’t. But there’s no need to smear the guy. Let the record speak for itself.
