Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been staying away from any Super Bowl talk this offseason, but speaking on the sidelines of AT&T Stadium during the preseason finale on Thursday night, All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant made it clear that, make no mistake, the Super Bowl is the goal for the Cowboys.
“That goal is to be in Santa Clara at the beginning of February,” Bryant said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We want to touch that Super Bowl. I feel like we work extremely hard and we’re prepared.”
Bryant was held out on Thursday, to the surprise of no one, and didn’t play a snap in the preseason. After his holdout, the Cowboys’ plan was to ease Bryant back into action in camp, but he suffered a strained hamstring in early August and has been limited ever since, but he should be ready to go for the season opener next Sunday night.
“I feel good,” Bryant said. “I’ve been doing everything these coaches and trainers have been telling me. Taking it slow, but it’s hard for me. I go hard. I’m extremely happy with the work that I’ve put in. I don’t know what the results are going to be, but I’m excited about our team.”
