Dez Bryant Treats Cowboys Teammates to $54,896 Dinner
Good news for the Dallas Cowboys regarding rookie Dez Bryant: the wide receiver seems to have made nice with his teammates after refusing to carry Roy Williams’ shoulder pads during training camp this summer. At the time we saw nothing wrong with Bryant’s refusal, considering Williams has been somewhat of a bum since coming to Dallas from Detroit. In retrospect, maybe the rookie should have just carried the pads like all the other newbies.
If he had, he might be $54,896 richer today. That’s right, according to ESPN Dallas Dez Bryant treated his teammates to a $54,896 dinner at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. The original plan was to treat only the offense to dinner, but apparently Williams took the liberty of inviting the defense. Needless to say, the gang was all there and brought their appetites.
Players supposedly ordered everything on the menu and took a few bottles of wine to go. The fact that someone can dish out that amount of money for a dinner and continue living their life is amazing to me. You would think Bryant’s teammates would cut him a bit of a break and keep the total to — oh I don’t know — under $10,000? Would that be unreasonable?
