Dez in Trouble?



    It wasn't long ago — within the past week, in fact — that Cowboys second-year wide receiver Dez Bryant went on record saying he thought he was "just OK" in 2011.

    Not what fans want to hear, but in a way, it is.

    It seemed like he might have come to the realization that a high draft pick is expected to have more than one 100-yard game in his two-year career and not continue to have off-the-field problems.

    Well, while the New York Giants young receivers — Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz — continue to wow folks, Dez is continuing to disappoint them after he was apparently involved in an altercation in a Miami nightclub.

    The words "Miami" and "nightclub" together are usually not a good thing for pro athletes.

    Miami police say there is no documentation or confirmation of any police incidents involving Bryant. Police said he was not arrested and that if he was 'kicked out' of a club it wouldn't be documented.

    Bryant's agent has not returned calls for comment. The Cowboys said simply, "We are not aware of any documented reports from any authorities."

    Bryant, who is immensely talented, has never been in any serious trouble. The most damning thing he's had on his rap sheet so far before this was his financial troubles, which is mainly just unfortunate for him, not the Dallas Cowboys.

    We hope the report out of Miami isn't true and that Dez proves all his doubters wrong.
