The media war between Deion Sanders and Dez Bryant has begun to get silly. Bryant and Sanders relationship soured after Deion helped Dez to get a deal with Under Armor.Dez recieved the money from Under Armor, however he did not like the shoes from Under Armor and refused to wear them. In Deion’s eyes Dez should have worn the shoes or gave the money back, however Dez had already spent the money. “That’s my decision”, Bryant told ESPNDallas.com. “That has nothing to do with Prime. That made me feel he must be getting something from Under Armor”. Sanders was not getting anything from Under Armor yet they do sponsor all his youth camps.
However Bryant’s off the field issues have come into the news and according to Deion the Cowboys should be worried. Deion was on the The Ben and Skin Show on ESPN 103.3 FM on Friday and said “He needs help. He needs help. I told the Cowboys from Day One that he needs help. Matter of fact, they have a team in place to help him. But you can not tell a grown man what to do.” Bryant is only 22 years old and did some great things on the field last season for the Cowboys. However when his off the field issues make the news as much as his on the field success the Cowboys might want to look into how to control him better. If you remember Bryant made headlines in camp when he wouldn’t carry Roy Williams pads, he was seen yelling at coaches on the sidelines, he was late to meeting and now the most recent getting banned from NorthPark Center.
How do you feel about Bryant’s antics? Does Bryant need to get his act together or is he just being a normal 22 year old? What should the Cowboys do?
