Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland apologized to Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant last week after reports came out that Ireland had asked Bryant if his mom was a prostitute. But Bryant’s mom wonders why Ireland hasn’t apologized to her, too.
“No, he has not called,” Angela Bryant told Thomas George of FanHouse. “I think he should have. Why wouldn’t you do that?”
Unnamed sources connected with the Dolphins have been contacting members of the NFL media to push a story saying Ireland asked the question only after Bryant told him that his dad was a pimp and that his mom worked for his dad. But Angela Bryant is joining her son in calling the Dolphins’ spin a lie.
“Yes, I am upset about it,” Angela Bryant told FanHouse. “I am not pleased with it. I’ve heard how the question was supposed to have come about — that Dez supposedly said his father was a pimp — but I don’t believe that. I think the Dolphins have put that out there as their excuse.”
Ultimately, Angela Bryant is pleased with how things worked out because her son is now in Dallas.
“I told Dez to keep his head up,” she said. “He told me a long time ago he wanted to be in Dallas and be a Cowboy. And he is. Some things happen for a reason. If Dez is happy, I’ll be OK. Thank God all of those teams, especially the Dolphins, passed him over.”
