Dez Bryant Huppla

The Counselor is IN:

This last week, a lawsuit was filed against Dez Bryant. He is accused of not paying his tab for $500,000 in jewelry. He may have stiffed his co-signer and the two jewelry stores for the cost of his new bling. If he did this, then Dez is showing his youth and immaturity.

Some people have blown this out of proportion.  They are ranting and raving about Bryant. These same people declare he is falling apart and will self destruct the Cowboys.

We all know that wide receivers can be divas. Some of them like the flash and spot light. Dez appears to be one of them.

Dez Bryant has not physically harmed anyone.  He was not stopped for driving drunk.  He has not even ranted about his teammates and/or his coaches.  It is not like he was caught with hookers and cocaine.  

Bryant flashed his skill and talents on the field last season.  Injuries prevented him from playing several games but he demonstrated why the Cowboys coveted him at the draft.  He will be a playmaker for years to come.

I am not saying that we need to dismiss Bryant’s off the field issues.  He should be held accountable for his bills and choices.  If he owes this money for a vanity like jewelry, then he should be made to pay for it. I hope he learns from this and adds people around him to help him with his off the field and financial choices.  But this is not at a level that will be detrimental to the Dallas Cowboys.
