Wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson has liked what he’s seen out of Dez Bryant so far this offseason, his first real offseason with the Cowboys since joining the team after the 2010 season--last year, of course, mini-camps, OTAs and the voluntary offseason conditioning program were wiped from the schedule as a result of the lockout.
Robinson was asked about Bryant following a rookie mini-camp session this weekend, and he had only good news to report.
"He's doing great," Robinson said, per the Dallas Morning News. "Having a good off-season. Working really hard and getting better out here every day. Again, that's got to carry over to the next phase, to the OTAs and training camp and then regular season, game day."
We’ve heard numerous coaches across the league express the opinion that the full, uninterrupted offseason would only help their players, and according to Robinson, Bryant is no different.
"I think he's working hard in here," Robinson said. "The teaching sessions got off to a good start. He's out here working really, really hard to get better. It's got to make a difference. If it doesn't, then what's the point of the off-season program? I'm confident it's going to help."
