Claiborne Sees Difference in Dez

Dez Bryant and Mo Claiborne did battle throughout last week's mini-camp



    Coming off a career-year, the sky is the limit for receiver Dez Bryant. What’s scary for defenders is that, according to Bryant’s teammate, cornerback Morris Claiborne, who battled Bryant throughout OTAs and last week’s mini-camp, Bryant has gotten noticeably better from last year to now.

    You notice a difference in Dez going against him every day,” said Claiborne, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s getting better.

    “That’s the only person I’ve really been going up against. Me and him have been having this battle the whole minicamp and OTAs.”

    Bryant finished the 2012 campaign with 92 catches, 1,382 yards receiving, and 12 touchdowns--all career bests. Maybe more encouraging for Dallas fans, Bryant has had a noticeably quiet offseason thus far, something he's struggled with since coming into the league as a first round pick back in 2010.
