We’ve heard of the NFL being the “No Fun League,” but the Dallas Cowboys just took it to another level.
ESPN Dallas reported Sunday about a new set of rules for often troubled receiver Dez Bryant. Here’s a list of what Bryant has to follow.
• A midnight curfew. If he’s going to miss curfew, team officials must know in advance;
• No drinking alcohol.
• He can’t attend any strip clubs and can only attend nightclubs if they are approved by the team and he has a security team with him.
• He must attend counseling sessions twice a week.
• A rotating three-man security team will leave one man with Bryant at all times.
• Members of the security team will drive Bryant to practices, games and team functions.
Basically the Cowboys will be babysitting their 24-year-old wide receiver. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that Bryant is willing to cooperate and work under these conditions.
“Oh yeah, very much willing to do anything he can to help himself and help the team,” Jones said of Bryant. “He’s very open-minded and cooperative. He’s doing the right things by his teammates and everybody is counting on him.”
Bryant is a physical mismatch for defenders and he’s caught 108 passes for 1,489 yards and 15 touchdowns in 15 games over two NFL seasons.
