So far so good for Dez Bryant. In the last three days, his actions have spoken louder than anything hes done since getting suspended during his junior season in Stillwater. Throughout it all...suspension, injury-forced absence from the NFL combine, shoe controversy at his personal pro day...Dez has proclaimed that he just wants to play football.
Since Thursday, Dez has done the following:
-Became the first of this years first-round picks to sign his rookie contract.
-Showed up 45 minutes early for the first day of Dallas Cowboys training camp in San Antonio.
-Proclaimed catching passes from Tony Romo in his first practice to be the highlight of his life.
-Refused to be baited by reporters into a verbal announcement of a position battle with fellow wide receiver Roy Williams.
Dez Bryant has lived a tumultuous young life and much of what he has endured has not been of his own doing. The one thing that has seemed to provide stability for Dez is being on the football field. Its amazing how stable things look now that he is back on one again.
