Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant made multiple headlines this offseason after being sued multiple times over jewelry debts. The total amount Bryant was being sued for exceeded $800,000. Bryant has put the financial troubles behind him and is now ready to focus on the upcoming season.
“I have a handle on it and it’s done,” Bryant said. “It’s in the past and I’m ready to go ahead from here.
“There will be an NFL season and I think we will start on time,” Bryant added. “I know Dallas will be ready to go, and I’ll be ready to put on my helmet and go to work.
“I’m very determined to stay healthy this season. I’m working hard and I am staying focused on that. I’m running routes every day to get ready. It was 104 degrees yesterday and I was running gassers. I feel good and I’m ready to play.”
Part of Bryant’s preparation for the upcoming season has been attending the team organized workouts.
“We’re getting together two or three times a week at an undisclosed location. We can’t be at the facility, but everything else is fine. We’re going through practice and getting ready. The work stoppage isn’t hurting me at all. I’m motivating myself to be ready.”
The young wideout seems very dedicated and focused on becoming an even better player in his sophomore season. Bryant believes that the team will be a lot more aggressive with new head coach Jason Garrett calling the plays and as a result, the Cowboys should hopefully see an improvement in the win column.
“I think we’ll be more aggressive this year with (Garrett) in charge. I still have a bad taste in my mouth after starting 1-7 last year, and that makes me motivated and determined for this season.”
