The Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant sat down with Ben and Skin on ESPN Radio this week (actually, we’re not sure if he was sitting or standing, but you get the point), and told them and their listening audience that he believes he’s matured as a result of off-field troubles past.
That is, Bryant admitted that there had been problems, but he didn’t get into any specifics about what those problems might have entailed.
“Of course, there were problems,” Bryant said, per the Dallas Morning News. “And it was some stuff that I didn't understand, that I do understand now, where it could have been a problem, and I feel like they've been taken care of. I really have looked over my past and, like I've said, I'm just ready to go.
“I've felt like I've matured as a man and I've got my priorities straight. I'm just ready to go out and do my job.”
Of course, the Cowboys share this wish with Bryant, though (a) when he will be able to get back to work and (b) whether the team is legitimately worried about the young receiver and what he’ll get into while locked out of football, there's no way to know.
