Dez Bryant needs structure. Dez Bryant apparently needs a full-time mentor. These are things that have been said about the former OSU star for a long time now, not just since the latest news of the lawsuits against him for failing to pay for items like jewelry and tickets totaling more than 860-thousand dollars.
Dez (or members of his posse) needs a belt to hold up his (or their) pants. Dez needs to stay out of at least one mall in Dallas. These are things that have been said not just by media observers, but also by current and/or former NFL players.
By now, a lot of people know about Dezs tough life growing up. They know about his issues with the NCAA.
There are a lot of people cheering for Dez, for the maturity light to come on and come on fast. It appears that some of those close to him aren't influencing him in the right way. Dez needs some new friends, you could say.
There are a lot of things Dez needs, but one things for sure: Staying busy with mini-camps and the other workouts helps.
In other words, Dez DOESNT need a lockout.
