Many may be worried about his integrity. Many may be worried about his stamina, having played very little ball in his final college season at Oklahoma State. But today, Dez Bryant proved his drive by being the first player to take the field for the kickoff of training-camp.
According to the Associated Press, Bryant was on the field 45 minutes early wearing his coveted number 88 jersey.
He began catching passes soon-after from undrafted rookie QB Matt Nichols.
“I want to help this team. I want to compete. I can’t wait to start playing football again,” Bryant said in a statement that was released by the Cowboys earlier in the week.
Bryant’s willingness to get his deal done and hit the field so readily, stand to backup these statements.
Only time will tell if those double-eights on his shoulders will become too much weight to bear.
