Dez Bryant rules in effect for Dallas Cowboys?



Troubled but talented wide receiver Dez Bryant of the Dallas Cowboys has agreed to abide by a set of special rules imposed by the team, ESPNDallas.com reported Sunday.

Citing sources, the report said the rules went into effect on Aug. 23 and include no alcohol, no strip clubs, only nightclubs that are approved by the Cowboys and a midnight curfew.



Additionally, Bryant will have a rotating three-person team (picked by Bryant's adviser, David Wells) of drivers and security guards, who will take him to practices, games and other team events.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones praised Bryant for being "very much willing to do anything he can to help himself and help the team.

"He's very open-minded and cooperative," Jones continued. "He's doing the right things by his teammates and everybody is counting on him."

The Dallas County district attorney's office still hasn't decided if it will press charges against the 23-year-old Bryant for a July 14 incident in which he was charged with a Class A misdemeanor by the DeSoto Police Department for allegedly assaulting his mother, Angela Bryant.




...Sooo glad the Pats traded down in 2012 and never drafted this guy. At the time, everyone was like 'Pats missed out', but its good to know it was a good miss. Not a Patriot type player at all, and though he has skill, seems like he's a princess that wants or gets attention.

He is young and talented so he could turn it around but it is pretty funny hearing Cowboy fans try to defend this pick, he sounds like a man child.

Well at least Dez is showing some signs of wanting to change as he agreed to these restrictions. Hopefully he's able to stay healthy and avoid all the other drama stuff this season

Just a reminder that our draft is next Monday night...1 week today and the season kicks off in just over a week! bartscottcantwait.jpg

Wilson did have a very solid pre-season.

Maybe they just want to see how he will do in an actual game, we all know Flynn can play and if Wilson can't handle it then Flynn will just step in.

As someone who follows Seattle semi closely (die hard Denver fan but I am also a home team guy and the closest team we have is Seattle) I just do not get it. In Wilson, you have a guy who is severely undersized for his position. His ability to see the field and throw over tall defenders was a big reason why he was drafted in the 3rd round. Yeah he did have 3 good "NFL" games however they were all in the pre season and 2 of them were against 2nd/3rd stringers. He is a starter instead of Matt Flynn who learned from the best in the game in Aaron Rodgers and majority of NFL fans would argue was the best backup to not be a starter. How the heck does 3 pre season games justify this?

I like Pete Carroll but I am not convinced on Russel Wilson and as a result I have to say Carroll screwed up the decision

Though I see what you're saying, Wilson fared really well against the Chief starting defense, who are supposed to be very solid this year.

Hmm.
Cut Stallworth, Branch, Gaffney, Ebert, Gonzalez and Holly.
Left with Welker, Lloyd, Edelman ..
I guess Hernandez must've increased his speed quite a bit this off season if he's going to be slotted as a wide receiver.

Swap Byron Leftwich and Tom Brady's situations. Today Brady would be a UFA or on the Roughriders practice roster, Byron Leftwich would have 100 more wins than losses.

W/R/T = Wide receiver/Running back/Tight end (you get an extra spot to play any offensive player you want that isn't QB or K)
IR = Injured Reserve
Good question on the 2 pt convert, I'm pretty sure that whoever scores gets the 2 pts, and the QB ALSO gets 2 pts if he passed (maybe not, i'm not sure)
I'm pretty sure that offensive fumble return td is recovering a fumble for a td while you're team is on offense (not really a passing OR rushing td)
Benched players get you no points that week, but you can't change players positions at all
Defense is an entire team

Do we need a envy player for each position?
And what position do we draft for the injury reserve?

The IR position is there so that if one of the players you've drafted gets injured you can place him on IR to to open up a roster spot to add someone else. That way if a player is only going to be hurt a few games you don't have to drop him and risk losing him.

Hope everyone remembers the draft is tomorrow night!
