Dez Bryant has had a tough off-season, since being released by the Dallas Cowboys. In the last day or two, he’s started getting into it with his former team.
In a recent radio interview, Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones spoke about the potentially negative impact that Bryant made on Dak Prescott in his second NFL season. From ESPN:
"He's gotta trust the system, which at times I think last year there was pressure, with Dez in his ear, to some degree Jason in his ear," Jones said. "Those great players want the ball."
Jones also mentioned since-retired Jason Witten as being someone that could have been “in Dak’s ear” about getting the ball. Still, Bryant took it as a shot and responded via Twitter.
Bryant spent a lot of time going back and forth with people on Twitter after the interview, going as far as to call former teammate Sean Lee “a snake” in one tweet.
Cowboys fan and FS1 provocateur Skip Bayless weighed in on the Dez Bryant controversy.
Bayless accused Bryant of not having “moved on” from the falling out with his long-time team. Given the significant amount of Twitter time spent on it, it isn’t the most unfair charge Bayless has ever levied.
Dez didn’t appreciate it, and clapped back minutes ago.
Bryant is rumored to be in talks with the Cleveland Browns, who have really bolstered their receiving corps this year, with the return of Josh Gordon and the acquisition of Jarvis Landry. It definitely looks like he’s still a bit sour on how things with Dallas ended though.
