Dez Bryant Says He’s Fixed His Surroundings, Now on Straight and Narrow
The only news about Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant lately has been positive. Dez is said to be dominating during the team’s training camp and many of his teammates are expecting a breakout season. But until recently, Dez had been more known for his problems away from football rather than his play on the field.
As recently as July, we passed along a report saying Bryant had skipped out on an autograph session. Before that, he supposedly had trouble at a shopping mall for wearing his pants too low. He’s reportedly owed jewelers money, and who can forget the pads carrying incident with Roy Williams last year?
That’s a nice summary of all the issues Dez has faced. Now, Bryant says he’s a changed man.
“I think it was my surroundings [that led to problems],” Bryant told the Cowboys website. “I feel like I fixed that, and I’m headed on the straight and narrow path. I don’t need to get into details. Everything is done, I like how it’s going and my life is on straight.”
Aside from cracking up over envisioning Dez saying he’s headed “on the straight and narrow,” I’m not sure I can buy all this. It’s one thing to say everything is fixed, but the best way to prove the change is by avoiding trouble.
