Weeden: Dez Has Grown a Lot Since OK State Days

Brandon Weeden knows Dez Bryant well from their days as teammates at Oklahoma State



    Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden says Dez Bryant has matured a lot since 2007, when the two arrived in Stillwater, Oklahoma to begin their respective college careers with the Oklahoma State Cowboys. But some things, like Bryant’s passion for the game, are just as Weeden remembers.

    He’s unbelievable at what he does,” Weeden said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It’s the same stuff he did when he was 18 when he came in. I have said it when we came in the same year, he’s just a freak. The guy is probably the most passionate football player. He loves the game more than anyone I’ve ever been around.”

    After signing with Dallas in March, less than a week after being released by the Browns, it didn’t take Weeden long to notice that his old pal had grown up noticeably--which, he’s quick to point out, isn’t to say Bryant was ever a bad guy by any means.

    “I could tell the first day when I came in the locker room, compared to six or seven years ago, he had grown a whole lot,” Weeden said. “He is making good decisions off the field, doing the right things. He’s always been a great guy, never been a problem child. But he’s growing up. He’s maturing. I wouldn’t expect anything less. He knows he has to.”
