Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant upset over 'Dez rules' story

On Tuesday, ESPN’s Calvin Watkins wrote a story on Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant in which team owner Jerry Jones suggested Bryant’s ‘rules’ be kept in place.

Those rules? A reported collection of requests from the Cowboys that were outlined to keep Bryant out of trouble.

There wasn’t anything outlandish about the rules (outside of possibly being a little over the top) put in place prior to the 2012 season, but Bryant was not thrilled the story became public – firing off a less than happy tweet to Watkins suggesting the story wasn’t true.

The now deleted tweet read the following:

I lost all respect for you writing a bull*** story that’s no longer true….don’t bring your a** to my locker

At this point it’s difficult to tell if the rules are still in place or if they’ve been disbanded by the Cowboys, though the comment from Jones seems to suggest some type of rules are being followed.

Bryant, who dealt with a hefty amount of trouble during his first few years in the league has been on relatively solid behavior since, though, has had difficulty shaking the troubled reputation.
