Dez Bryant has been all over the news lately for his inability to pay his debts and wear a belt. Bryant’s advisor David Wells sat down — or maybe he was standing, who knows — with ESPN Radio today to answer some questions about the troubled receiver.
“I talked to him yesterday and he wants to get past this. He wants to get all these deals past him and closure. He’s in a dark place in his life. Until you find that light, you’re going to continue to be in a dark place. When people are coming at you, and Dez doesn’t like his name thrown out there, it bothers him. He just wants to be left alone. He’s got a plan that he talked to me about yesterday, that he wants to move forward with. The greatest thing in the end is if Dez comes out and does what he has to do in the community, as a father, with the Cowboys organization, then I think he’ll be OK.”
Wells is also the man who helped Bryant get all the expensive jewelry while he was still enrolled at Oklahoma State. Wells says he doesn’t believe that is a violation of NCAA rules — the NCAA will surely disagree.
Bryant’s former mentor Deion Sanders also sat in on the session.
