Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant said two weeks ago that "[M]y focus is on the Cowboys. … [They] have nothing to worry about. I'm doing what I'm supposed to do."

Bryant's comments come after a busy offseason that included mall banishment for wearing his pants to low (he was later allowed to return to the mall, baggy pants and all), being sued by a local Dallas jeweler for $600,000, and a public breakup with his mentor Deion Sanders.

Even though Bryant proclaimed in June that he had a handle on his money situation, he continues to find himself in legal entanglements for unpaid Bills.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Bryant and his confidante, area bail-bondsman David Wells, face a Jan. 9, 2012, court date in a civil suit.
Eleow Hunt, of Colleyville, filed suit in Tarrant County in September, 2010, alleging Bryant and Wells have not paid him about $600,000 for jewelry, sports tickets and loans. It was the second civil suit against Bryant in the last year. He has settled with a New York jeweler over an alleged debt or $246,000. In June, Bryant claimed Hunt's civil suit had been "taken care of."
Most people make it through their entire lives without being sued for unpaid debts, even without ever signing five-year, $11.8 million contracts that included $8.5 million in guarantees.

So while Bryant says that the Cowboys have nothing to worry about, we're guessing that, you know, they're still worrying.

Silver lining: At least Bryant isn't sending $76,000 worth of jewelry by way of the U.S. Postal Service.

Idiot doesn't come close to describe this guy. Did he ever hear of pac man Jones? You just get done with a work action that included taking care of ex players that need money. How could someone besides Newt Gingrich spend a half a mill on jewelry. The agents should make these guys take allowances. What am I saying I hope their are another 10.000 like him our economy needs it. Spend big boy spend

Dez Bryant is good but he's not that good. He will never have a Hall Fame type career.

He better save what he can now because it will not last long.  I see lots of trouble in this boys future.

Unbelievable!  I just got a contract, Im going to go spend all my money on jewelery.  Wow.  Hanging out with a bail bondsman, haha.  I cant believe what fools some of these guys are.  Dont they know about all of the other players who were broke and bankrupt at the end of their careers?  I think its a shame that these guys are paid this much money, its such a waste.  That money should go to people who deserve it, like fireman, police, and paramedics, not these fools and thugs.

Dez Bryant:  Broken, homeless and forgotten about at age 40.  It's sounds possible given what I've seen from him so far.
