Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant’s background has been under the microscope since before he entered the NFL back in 2010 but, after three seasons in the league--the last of which saw Bryant as a model citizen and an emerging superstar--Bryant doesn’t want to talk about the past anymore.
Presumably in response to a discussion on 105.3-FM The Fan last week, in which former NFL scout and DallasCowboys.com writer Bryan Broaddus called Bryant’s background “the worst I had ever seen,” the Cowboys’ receiver took to Twitter on Monday.
“I just wanted to know why is my background relevant right now?” Bryant tweeted, per the Dallas Morning News. “I promise there is more [expletive] to talk about in this world than my background.”
Bryant previously addressed this issue back in November, saying then, more or less, that the past is past.
“I don’t want to make excuses, but people are brought up differently, see different things, been in different things, having two parents, having no parents,” he said. “It’s different. I just feel like it’s been a learning process for me my whole life and I’m just getting to it. I got real responsibilities I feel like I’m handling the right way. I’m enjoying my life the way I should have been enjoying it a long time ago.”
