Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says an offseason of hard work has already translated to the best physical conditioning of his life, and is going to translate to the best season of his career.

I am in the best shape that I’ve ever been,” Bryant told ESPNDallas.com.

Bryant has been seen at NBA games and has traveled this offseason, but his workouts have never suffered.

“Trust me, I’ve been working hard,” Bryant said. “I’ve been working six days out of the week. Today is my off day, but I’m going to the facility right now. That’s all I’ve been doing. This year is special.”

Bryant is already one of the best receivers in the NFL, with two straight seasons of more than 90 catches, more than 1,200 yards and 12-plus touchdowns. If Bryant is in even better shape now than he was in the last two years, that’s very good news for the Cowboys.
