Dez Bryant given ‘Good Guy’ award by Dallas Cowboys beat writers


Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is pretty misunderstood.

Yes, he’s had his moments on the field that you expect a leader to avoid but for the most part, Bryant is a wonderful presence in the Dallas Cowboys locker room and is a favorite of his teammates.

He’s also a favorite of local writers who voted Bryant as the winner of their annual ‘Good Guy’ award, this according to Dallas Morning News:

This season, he was honored for his consistent and outstanding cooperation with the local beat reporters. Dez Bryant received the team’s “Good Guy” award given by the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America.

Bryant always made himself available to reporters – win or lose – and never ducked questions.

It’s been a struggle for Bryant to stay out of trouble, both on and off-field in recent seasons but this certainly is a step in the right direction.

Hopefully for Bryant and the Cowboys, it’s something that will continue moving forward as the wide receiver attempts to emerge as a leader.
