Bryant: 'Cowboys have nothing to worry about'

According to the handy lockout-o-meter, we have been without football for 121 days. It seems like one of the Cowboys' primary concerns these past four months is how 2010 first-round pick Dez Bryant would handle all the unstructured free time.

And perhaps the organization has reason to worry. Bryant's been banned from malls for wearing his pants to low, sued by a local Dallas jeweler for $600,000, and had a public breakup with his mentor Deion Sanders.

Turns out there's nothing to see here, people. Despite Sanders saying that Bryant needs people in his life who will tell him "no," Bryant says he's all about football.

“I congratulate Deion on the success he had in his career and I'm very excited about him getting inducted into the Hall of Fame," Bryant said, according to the Dallas Morning News. "But my focus is on the Cowboys. Whatever is said about that situation, it can be said. I'm done with it. I'm just ready to move on."

After Bryant's "droopy pants incident" at a Dallas-area mall in March, Sanders, appearing on the Ben & Skin Show on ESPN 103.3, said "[Bryant] needs help. I told the Cowboys from Day 1 that he needs help. Matter of fact, they have a team in place to help him. But you cannot tell a grown man what to do."

Bryant's response at the time: "I wish Deion would come to me as a man and talk to me. I've been reaching out to Deion. I've never done anything wrong to Deion or disrespected him. I've never lied to Deion."

Some four months later and Bryant says he has a handle on his situation.

"I know the main guys that I do have around me. I'm not going to say any names, but I put them to work. Just know they're not going to live off of Dez Bryant. I've told them to their face, 'If you're not on what I'm on, and that's doing everything right, you got to move around. ... We all have to stay focused. And there's only three of us really. Three of us and another one of my good friends. We are all friends. There's only three that are actively working."

To recap: There is absolutely nothing to be concerned about.

"All I know is everybody's entitled to their own opinion. In my eyes, I felt like the Cowboys have nothing to worry about. I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. I feel like I'm maturing as a man. I'm getting everything done like I'm supposed to do. I'm ready to go out and play football and do my best."

Bryant: 'Cowboys have nothing to worry about'

This team has not been worth _hit since JJ bought them.
Yeah, 3 Super Bowls is a drop in the bucket compared to what others have done since then.  I thought you had been watching football for a while now..  Was it Canadian?  Idiot.

And to the rest of you haters on here, suck it up.  Dez Bryant hasn't done anything to constitute thuggery and when he and our "mediocre" QB are scoring TD's this season (if we have one..) what will you say then?  Everyone wants this guy to fail so badly it's hilarious.  Keep on hating, it's actually kind of sweet.

I just can not believe how many people care about this stupid football team.  I have been a football fan for over 45 years.  I do not get what the draw to this team is.  This team has not been worth _hit since JJ bought them.  Cocky arrogant and  an owner that picks his nose on national tv while the ex president sits there like get me outta here.  The only thing that the cowgirls have to worry about is their stupid discraceful owner.

The only thing the cowboys have to worry about is another disappointing season... thanks mostly to their HIGHLY overrated QB.

Hire Deion

dez needs to hire back Prime as his main handler to keep him in line and stop him from wasting all his millions buying bling at the mall.
