Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett differ in responses to Dez Bryant
Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett had differing opinions on Dez Bryant’s locker room outburst on Thursday.
Jones backed Dez Bryant in his tirade, saying that he understands why the star receiver reacted the way he did.
“I have a lot of experience with Dez, real close in,” Jones told KRLD-FM on Friday, via ForTheWin. “I probably have a tolerance for the way he expresses himself that you can’t expect people that don’t know him in a real up-close and personal way would. Not that mine is the right thing to be, maybe you can be too close to something sometimes. But because I am close and because I’ve spent a lot of time with him, then I understand his responses.”
Jason Garrett didn’t quite feel the same way when speaking to reporters Friday, saying Bryant went about things the wrong way.
Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant didn't handle things the right way in the locker room and they have talked to him about it

Jason Garrett sees Dez's outburst as a "great teaching opportunity." He said he made it "abundantly clear" to Dez that he was in the wrong.

“Dez shouldn’t be in that situation,” Garrett continued, as reported by ForTheWin. “If someone is going to incite him, just remove yourself from the situation.”
Bryant wears his heart on his sleeve, and Garrett probably can’t control that all that much, especially if there’s any truth behind what allegedly sparked the outburst.
