The Cowboys Worked Over Dez Bryant Like He Was A Four Dollar Whore Today

Amid all the other crap going on with Dez Bryant right now (I refer you to The Sporting Blog – they are all over the story today), here’s another thing to add to the list: Bryant was visibly exhausted during his first workout with the Dallas Cowboys.

He’s caught just about everything thrown his way, including a spectacular, one-handed grab with his left hand on a ball thrown on a comeback route. It looked like he stabbed his arm out to catch a nerf ball, not a football.

But after almost every route, Bryant has walked off to the side of the field to rest. After one play he took off his helmet, used it to prop himself up and bent down on one knee for nearly a minute. He would constantly take his helmet off and wipe his face with a towel during drills when the other rookies would not.

Boy, that doesn’t sound good. Bryant better shape up or the Cowboys are going to put him out on the street.
