NFL Rumors: Dallas Cowboys say Dez Bryant's 'rules' to stay in place

For the past few years, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been on the straight and narrow – part of that likely due to the rules the team put in place along with adviser David Wells.

The Cowboys gave Bryant a strict midnight curfew, will not allow him to consume alcohol, will not allow him to attend strip clubs (nightclubs must be approved) and must attend counseling two times per week – this all with a three-man security team that is with him 24/7.

Needless to say, it’s quite the process – but one Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants to remain in place.

Before the start of the 2012 season, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant agreed to a strict set of conduct rules. They were set up by Bryant and his adviser David Wells in consultation with team officials. Two years in, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said the rules should remain in place.

“He doesn’t need to drop his guard,” Jones said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. “In some respect, none of us do.”

On Tuesday evening, Jones said the Cowboys and Bryant had exchanged numbers on a contract extension so it appears the team is willing to re-invest in Bryant long term.
