Dez Bryant Doesn't "Give A Fuck" What You Think About His Yelling

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has a habit of getting really energetic on the sidelines. As we've found out via the NFL's access to players, Bryant just likes shouting to keep his teammates' morale high. He and corner Orlando Scandrick were yelling on the bench last night so the Cowboys could hold their lead over the… » 12/05/14 1:35pm 12/05/14 1:35pm

Records Show Cop Visits To Dez Bryant's Home Were Mostly Nothingburgers

On Sunday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the Cowboys had some "concerns" over Dez Bryant's off-the-field behavior, and he cited a handful of times the cops were called to Bryant's house.

The Dez Bryant Smear Season Is Upon Us

Dez Bryant will be a free agent after the season, and the Cowboys would prefer to hammer out a contract extension for the wide receiver before then.

You Can Get Away With Acting Like Dez Bryant If You're Tony Romo

Dez Bryant Has Grown Up, No Word On Brian Billick

If you don't know already, nfl.com released the audio of Dez Byant's Sunday "rant" during a last-minute loss to the Detroit Lions.

Dez Bryant Says The NCAA's Johnny Manziel Problem Is Some Bullshit

It's important to remind ourselves, every now and again, just why the NCAA suspended Dez Bryant for an entire year, if only to remind ourselves what sort of operation we're dealing with. He met with Deion Sanders—not a violation!—and, confused and threatened by the interrogation from the NCAA's heavies, lied about it.… » 8/14/13 3:59pm 8/14/13 3:59pm

Late Contender For Most Infantilizing Headline Of The Year: "Dez Bryant…

That's sitting atop this piece on ESPN-it's on ESPN's frontpage headline feed as "Cowboys' Bryant gets permission to be out late"-about Dez Bryant's 24th birthday, which is tomorrow. Dez has been living under strict rules, enforced by Cowboys employees and personal advisers, ever since he assaulted his mother in… » 11/03/12 3:37pm 11/03/12 3:37pm

Dez Bryant Thought He Could Fool The Scab Refs Into Ruling This Catch A…

I've watched this play in HD maybe six or seven times, and it's clear that Dez Bryant is down on the turf in at least three different places (both knees and his right elbow) and perhaps also his left elbow, although it was inconclusive from the replay.
