Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is coming off a career-year, a breakout year, which saw him post 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns--all career-highs. But the Oklahoma State product is not satisfied.
“I feel like there’s always room to get better,” Bryant said recently, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think just by going in, getting everything I already know, cleaning it up, sharpening it up the best way I possibly can and just learning more and more the coaches give me, I feel like I’ll be taking a step each and every day.”
Bryant has had an incredibly productive offseason on the field, and a happily uneventful offseason off the field. Now, his personal goals are higher than ever. Bryant said recently that he hopes to become the best receiver in the NFL, a tall task considering the presence of, say, Detroit’s Calvin Johnson and Houston’s Andre Johnson, among others.
“If you’re a wide out, that is supposed to be your mindset,” Bryant said. “You don’t want to be second. You don’t want to be third. You want to be the best at what you can do. That is what I’m trying to do.”
