On Thursday, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett spoke at length about the developing rapport between quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant. It was a connection that could be seen down the stretch last year, and to hear Garrett tell it, it is only getting stronger.
Bryant had high praise for his quarterback this week, saying that he still holds the Cowboys signal caller in the highest regard. But beyond being a dangerous combination on the field, the Oklahoma State product says they’ve become good friends off the field.
“I never see Tony as an equal,” Bryant said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m still a big fan of Romo. I’m very fortunate that I had an opportunity to play with him, but I think the thing that’s changed in our relationship is that me and Tony are real great friends. I feel that also makes it much better on the field for us to have that type of relationship off the field.”
