Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says that a full offseason working with the team’s strength and conditioning staff has him in much better shape this year than he was at the end of the lockout last year.
Bryant told the Dallas Morning News he’s “a lot stronger” than he was before, and that working with Cowboys strength coach Mike Woicik has made a big difference.
“It affected me big time,” Bryant said. “I feel much quicker. I’m coming out of my breaks faster. I got in shape real quick. I know all the other guys have been going through the same workouts, so I’m pretty sure they feel the same exact way. I feel like the team is just really ready to go. I’m not going to predict anything, but I know for a fact that we’re ready to go.”
Bryant has said he was never at peak form last season after suffering a deep thigh bruise in Week One. This season he thinks he’s better than ever.
