We pointed out last night that Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently observed in an online chat that receiver Dez Bryant “pulled the diva act” while visiting the Rams.
Per Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Thomas’ account is being disputed.
“Bryant visited St. Louis after being in San Francisco,” Watkins writes. “Before leaving
for St. Louis, Bryant ate dinner at the airport in the San Francisco
area. When Bryant got to the Rams complex he was asked to go out for
dinner, but declined the invite because he wasn’t hungry.”
Of course, this explanation could be coming from Bryant’s camp. The Rams may have a different version unrelated to whether Bryant declined to break bread with the Rams’ brass.
