Report: Cowboys players feel Dez Bryant has been ‘easily distracted’
Dez Bryant is known for being a competitive guy, so you won’t be surprised to hear that he is not handling his team’s current seven-game losing streak all that well.
According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, several Dallas Cowboys players have expressed concern over Bryant’s attitude as of late.
“Even before (Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers), what they talked about was how Dez Bryant has not handled this in a constructive way,” Cole said Monday. “Instead, he has lashed out at the media and blamed everybody except for people on the team and his own play for what has gone on. While Dez is a star and a great emotional leader in some ways, he gets too easily distracted when things are going bad and doesn’t know how to channel his frustration.”
As you might expect, Cowboys players are also growing tired of the drama surrounding Greg Hardy. Most recently, Hardy supposedly missed some team meetings and had another argument with a teammate on the sideline. Bryant and Hardy also had a shouting match with each other on the sideline a few weeks ago, which you can see here.
The Cowboys’ offense has been completely inept without Tony Romo, who is expected to return this weekend. Unfortunately, it may be too late.
