Cowboys WR defends Dez Bryant’s handling of offseason
Dez Bryant certainly had opportunities to play this season, but as Week 1 looms, he’s still unemployed and that doesn’t look like it’s about to change. That means he’s received some inevitable criticism for his decisions.
Bryant’s former Cowboys teammate Cole Beasley thinks those criticisms are nonsense, and he said as much on Twitter on Friday.
1. Dez knows exactly who he is. 2. Money is not important to Dez at this point in his career. Not why he said no to that offer. If you don’t know anything about it don’t speak on it. From outside looking in it’s impossible to know anything in this business. https://t.co/T5noazEOiL

Bryant had the opportunity to sign a multi-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens earlier this offseason, but he turned it down, preferring to seek a one-year “prove-it” deal that he still hasn’t received. As recently as May, he’s said he has no regrets over turning down that deal. He had a plan and he’s stuck to it, and Beasley appears to be backing him up on that.
