Report: Dez violates his curfew


It’s been a rough year for Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.

Apart from a chronic inability to catch the football, to not misplay punts, and to remain healthy, Bryant has been placed on a set of rules for off-field conduct.  According to, now part of the USA Today Media Group, Bryant violated one of the basic terms of his double secret probation.

Dez was out past midnight, even though he’s questionable for Sunday night’s game at Atlanta with a hip injury.

Given that the Cowboys insisted that they didn’t impose the rules on Bryant and that he imposed them on himself, it’ll be interesting to see what happens next.

Will Dez fine himself?  Bench himself?  Suspend himself?

For now, we’ll have to wait and see what Dez does — and what the Cowboys don’t do.

    This guy is a prime example of J.J. not admitting his mistakes. Dez is a child, a waste of talent, and won’t ever be the player they thought he could be.

    Dez doesnt follow rules, they are made for others in his eyes, however heres an easy answer to what the cowboys wont do:
    win a playoff game with romo as qb!

    just another michael irvin.
    we’ll probably get a report shortly saying he was caught snorting cocaine off of a hooker… just like his counterpart.

    How can you break your own rule? This whole babysitting the grown up thing is stupid.

    Got a 17th row seat behind the Cowboys bench for Sunday night. Close enough to see Dez have a meltdown. Can’t wait.

    SO glad the Dolphins didn’t draft this clown.

  7. baloneyjohn says: Nov 3, 2012 8:46 AM

    Cut the bum. Send him to that circus, the NY Jets.
    This is a Prima Donna, head case.
    Lots of talent, zero between the ears

  8. flanjfan says: Nov 3, 2012 8:47 AM

    Potential 10. Common sense 0. My Phins desperately need a good receiver and I’m still glad we didn’t draft him.

  9. jimnaizeeum says: Nov 3, 2012 8:49 AM

    I wonder if he used the old sneak out the bedroom window and put pillows under the blankets trick to ditch the babysitters.

  10. gojags says: Nov 3, 2012 8:52 AM

    What happened to the security agency that is bodyguarding him? Were they yarning?

    This guy is not worth the trouble. He is the reason why Romo numbers has few more interception and cowboys have few more losses. Runs a wrong route or tips the ball to the opponent.

    Jerry – Cut this guy!!!!

  11. purplengold says: Nov 3, 2012 8:59 AM

    He was seen shaking a tambourine, chug-a-lugging, shouting, and letting it all hang out.

  12. cometkazie says: Nov 3, 2012 8:59 AM

    Dez is important if only to provide fodder for blogs.

  13. bewaredware says: Nov 3, 2012 9:00 AM

    Cut him. The cowboys can underachieve without him just as much as they can with him.

  14. taylorgang24 says: Nov 3, 2012 9:02 AM

    The cowboys are pathetically dumb.

  15. billymc75 says: Nov 3, 2012 9:03 AM

    Just bench this guy already , he’s another David Boston

  16. joetoronto says: Nov 3, 2012 9:06 AM

    And still, the odd idiot here will come along and support him, just watch.


  17. dd393 says: Nov 3, 2012 9:11 AM

    Trade him to the Jets.

  18. petehemlock says: Nov 3, 2012 9:18 AM

    You have to let him be his own man. Treating him like a kid will prevent him from maturing. Let him go. FREE DEZ

  19. vikingsvoice says: Nov 3, 2012 9:20 AM

    Cut him so Bill can pick him up and turn him into the stud Jerry thought he had.

  20. AlanSaysYo says: Nov 3, 2012 9:22 AM

    WhiteSportsOnline reports that Jason Garrett played a few rousing rounds of Battleship with his mother before turning in around 10pm.

  21. Gordon says: Nov 3, 2012 9:28 AM

    This is why I am even more impressed with Michael Irvin. He could be up all night, smoking, drinking, snorting candy, banging chicks, then show up the next day to have 100+ yards receiving & 1 or 2 TDs.

    Dez needs a babysitter to make sure he gets to bed on time, & still can’t match Irvin’s stats.

  22. irishnativeson says: Nov 3, 2012 9:31 AM

    Cut him for missing a self imposed curfew… You can only attribute these comments to a few things, one they aren’t Cowboy fans, two they aren’t to bright, or three they subscribe to the adage of, cutting off their nose to spite their face. Overreact on a Saturday morning much?

  23. mattolikesthevikes says: Nov 3, 2012 9:40 AM

    What a circus!!!

  24. footballfan says: Nov 3, 2012 9:41 AM

    Michael Irvin was actually able to catch the football though.

  25. h0rsesh0e says: Nov 3, 2012 9:49 AM

    So not only does the owner coach the team, the players coach themselves? what an amazing organization!

  26. mazblast says: Nov 3, 2012 9:58 AM

    “two they aren’t to bright”
    Speaking of not TOO bright…

    Back to the subject–I don’t want Dallas to cut Bryant. First, he is part of the trainwreck, and it wouldn’t be nearly as much of a trainwreck without him. Second, Jerry would rather keep Mr. What Route Shall I Run This Play around than admit that JJ the GM is clueless.

  27. edwinmoses says: Nov 3, 2012 9:59 AM

    joetoronto – do you ever offer anything of value?

  28. ilovefoolsball says: Nov 3, 2012 9:59 AM

    Hey cut it out you guys are bring racist man!

    Warren Moon

  29. ninjapleazee says: Nov 3, 2012 10:13 AM

    Trade deadline has passed. He needs a vet receiver to mentor him. No way will the cowboys cut him. Before everyone yells fire lets learn more about the situation. Maybe he caught late night screening of Man with Iron fist. Who knows.

  30. jmota222 says: Nov 3, 2012 10:15 AM

    What a waste of talent!!!! He’s no Michael Irvin take off that #88 ASAP !!! For all Michaels shortcomings at least he showed up on Sundays ready to play!!!! CUT THIS BUMB….

  31. jerryjonesmustdie83 says: Nov 3, 2012 10:35 AM

    This is a good opportunity for Red Jesus to flex his supposed coaching muscles and bench Dez for at least the first half, if not the whole game. If Dez is a true competitor and wants to get better, then it would absolutely KILL him to be on the bench and not on the field. But, we all know Jerruh, the owner/gm/president of Dez Bryant fan club would never allow Red J to show he’s an actual head coach.

  32. skoobyfl says: Nov 3, 2012 10:48 AM

    He’s on west coast time, so he wasn’t late.

  33. yelix says: Nov 3, 2012 10:54 AM

    This guy gets paid more than I ever will to catch a football (which he has trouble doing), and he still can’t be trusted to stay out of trouble at night.

    Good grief.

  34. scrapingthefloorioforstorios says: Nov 3, 2012 10:54 AM

    first guy to ever get grounded after getting drafted

  35. sevensgottago says: Nov 3, 2012 11:16 AM

    Upholding the finest tradition of a Cowboys # 88.

  36. amaf21 says: Nov 3, 2012 11:24 AM

    they should resign him as soon as they finish signing romo to his $100 mil contract.

  37. jnbnet says: Nov 3, 2012 11:39 AM

    I wonder how long it will take for him to sign with the Patriots?

  38. punkyqb says: Nov 3, 2012 11:48 AM

    Too bad we can’t combine the Jets and the Cowboys.How much fun would that would be to watch.

  39. mbellio says: Nov 3, 2012 11:59 AM

    Hanging out with delonte west loser I see now why he is always getting in trouble, it’s the company he keeps only Jerry would put up with it, time to part ways..

  40. poundthenuckolls says: Nov 3, 2012 12:03 PM

    waiting for the impending tried and true teenage excuse of “but I thought it was Daylight Savings Time”!

  41. doublezero74 says: Nov 3, 2012 12:07 PM

    The Patriots along with a lot of other teams could have drafted this “guy” but chose to stay away from a grown man with a 10 yr olds maturity. What a tool

  42. jbones77 says: Nov 3, 2012 12:30 PM

    He wasn’t “getting into trouble.” He went to a nightclub to celebrate his birthday. Not a big deal. Get over it.

  43. 1standinches says: Nov 4, 2012 1:04 AM

    Im guessing Dez Bryant’s parents are gonna tell Jerry Jones that hes staying in the house all day Sunday and cant come out to play.
