Dez Bryant has admitted that he didn’t quite live up to his own expectations in 2011, a season in which Bryant was injured in the first half of week one, suffering a deep thigh bruise against the Jets from which (he says) he never fully recovered. But from all accounts, Bryant has been having a fantastic offseason.
Coaches have lauded Bryant’s work in organized team activities and mini-camp, and quarterback Tony Romo agrees, saying that the Oklahoma State product has made some noticeable strides in his game this summer. Romo commented in a recent interview on CBS 11’s “The Blitz” that Bryant still has a pretty big upside, entering his third year in the NFL.
“He just keeps improving and improving. He’s a kid that I enjoy playing with because he wants to get better,” Romo said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s always asking, ‘Hey Tony, what can I do to be better?’ I love playing with guys like him, Miles (Austin) and these guys. They want to be better themselves and they’re trying to do anything they can to get better.
“The guys that really want to be great and have that ability to be great, you can’t have enough of those guys. And we got a few of them. Dez is just a great kid like that. He’s getting better and better every week.”
