Adviser says Dez Bryant had permission to be out last night

Lawrence Vickers, Dez Bryant AP

Yes, Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was out past midnight last night, in violation of his maybe-they-did, maybe-they-didn’t-set-them rules.

But according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, the night out was approved in advance.

But Bryant’s adviser David Wells confirmed that Bryant had been approved to go out to a nightclub to celebrate his birthday, which is Sunday.

“He had a security person there with him and some of his teammates were there too,” Wells said Saturday morning before leaving for Atlanta, where the Cowboys play the Falcons on Sunday night.

Wells said Bryant also arrived on time for Saturday morning’s walkthrough, and he was expected to participate. He’s listed as questionable with a sore hip.

Fairly or unfairly, how this is perceived will depend on how he plays Sunday night. If he makes plays, and keeps his hand in bounds, this will be forgotten, and quickly. If he drops balls or otherwise plays poorly, it’ll be used as evidence of immaturity.

    Do you think when he gets into 10th grade his parents will remove his curfew?

    Dez Bryant asked his advisor, Dez Bryant, if he was breaking the curfew set by Dez Bryant. Dez Bryant reviewed the night out Dez Bryant was planning, and concluded that it would not interfere with the Dez Bryant organization. Dez Bryant was pleased with the news, and continued with his late night partying. Meanwhile Jerry Jones has his face in his palm.

    Like other posters, this is weak weak weak. The Dallas Cowboy organization should be ashamed.

    You’re 100% right. I apologize. Lets all feel bad for a multimillionaire in his early 20′s who doesn’t know how to act.

    Lets stop all the Sandy donations and make sure Dez is ok.

    “Adviser says Dez Bryant had permission to be out last night” –

    Does this headline not epitomize the disfunctional wreck that is the Dallas Cowboi’s organization??? Oh Bill Parcells, where art thou???

  12. mz1394 says: Nov 3, 2012 1:12 PM

    regardless of the article bryant will always be the player who gives a team just enough hope about his play to not cut him but in the end only leave you questioning why you didnt

    150 yds, 2 TDs celebration of his birthday

  14. thejuddstir says: Nov 3, 2012 1:26 PM

    His permission to be out isn’t “official” until Jerrah confirms it and Jerrah Jr. is told by daddy that it’s ok to say it.

  15. atfinch1984 says: Nov 3, 2012 1:28 PM

    I’m glad I’m kept in the loop on this.

  16. warriors2533 says: Nov 3, 2012 1:30 PM

    Maybe when he turns 16 you get your curfew off… Oh wait he’s 25

  17. mattolikesthevikes says: Nov 3, 2012 1:30 PM

    Pathetic that a grown man needs an advisor to tell him that he can stay out late. What a champ!!

  18. kabasaman says: Nov 3, 2012 1:39 PM

    Keep Lookin

  19. hawkforlife says: Nov 3, 2012 1:48 PM

    ” and Jerrah Jr. is told by daddy that it’s ok to say it.”

    After he cleans his glasses ?

  20. snargi01 says: Nov 3, 2012 2:20 PM

    This guy is going to be broke and/or in jail within five years of his retirement from football.

  21. joewilliesshnoz says: Nov 3, 2012 3:00 PM

    Wonder if he’s allowed to play after the street lights come on ?

  22. jboyxl73 says: Nov 3, 2012 3:54 PM

    Is this a grown man? Just reading this I felt like I was listening to the school rat telling on somebody . The man plays pro football if he wants to destroy his career let him but until he does or doesn’t self destruct weather he goes out or not is his business ….

  23. ezra954 says: Nov 3, 2012 4:15 PM

    The real question is did he use the time wisely like his Qb Mr Romo and play hide and seek in the woods with grown men

  24. zachari14 says: Nov 3, 2012 4:21 PM

    If its alright with you, I’ll just ‘perceive’ it as a guy going out on his birthday, and then playing football two days later. I might even go crazy and perceive that if he drops a ball, it’s unrelated to having a few drinks days before that.

  25. thejuddstir says: Nov 3, 2012 5:45 PM

    Pathetic seems to be the popular word. A pathetic boy playing for a pathetic team that is owned by a pathetic owner who has a pathetic son and has a pathetic headcoach and a pathetic defensive coordinator. Makes you almost feel sorry for the fans of the cowboys.

    I honestly do not understand M. Jones and his thought process. Dez has caused so many problems while waiting for his “potential” to develop into on-field performance. It seems clear that this has not happened. Is it the size of his contract, fear that he will blossom on another team, is he afraid of critics? It appears that JJ is bending himself into a pretzel giving this malcontent unlimited chances for such a small return on his money and time. He is also sending a terrible message to the other players who work diligently, focus on their job and take the Cowboys and The NFL seriously. As I said, I do not understand.

    Actually, Dez being judge and jury sounds much like Jerrah being owner, GM, and de facto coach. In fact, it also sounds like The Great Roger Goodell Himself Live And In Person serving as prosecutor, judge, jury, appeals judge, and executioner.

    So when someone asks, “Where does Dez get all this sh**?”…

    My adviser told me the same thing.
