As to Dez Bryant, David Wells knows “where all the bodies are buried”


If there was any doubt regarding the significance of David Wells to the efforts of the Cowboys to keep problems relating to receiver Dez Bryant and others under wraps, there should be none whatsoever in the aftermath of a lengthy look at the renowned “fixer” from Kent Babb of the Washington Post.

The recently-published profile contains a quote from Wells that meshes with the concerns raised by PFT when Bryant tried to drag Wells into litigation between Bryant and Texas State Senator Royce West.

Babb happened to be with Wells when Wells became aware of the lawsuit, which accused Wells and West of taking advantage of Bryant for monetary gain. After initially trying to laugh it off, Wells turned serious, according to Babb.

“I got where all the bodies are buried,” Wells said. “Do you really want to [expletive] with me? I mean, do you?”

It’s a very broad and ominous statement from Wells regarding a very broad and ominous arrangement between Wells and Bryant, the extent of which became public when a copy of the agreement between Wells and Bryant was attached to paperwork filed by West in an effort to secure the dismissal of Bryant’s claims and to obtain $500,000 in sanctions against him for allegedly making unsubstantiated charges.

The recent settlement of the lawsuit likely will keep Wells from pointing out “where all the bodies are buried,” as will his ongoing relationship with the Cowboys. At some point, however, Wells could be in position to tell some interesting stories — and/or to provide some interesting evidence that to date has remained out of the public view, thanks to the skills and abilities of the man who routinely is compared to Harvey Keitel’s character in Pulp Fiction.

    Garrett and Jerruh remind me of Smithers and Mr Burns

    Wow, a real life Ray Donovan

    Of course he knows where the bodies are buried, he brought the shovel. Probably better for Dez that David Wells is more akin to Keitel’s Winston Wolfe than his Mr White.

    David Wells sounds like a Clinton employee.

    “David Wells sounds like a Clinton employee.”

    Let it go. This is a football site.

    Even used just as a figure of speech, the fact that a professional athlete has anything hidden that he could be – and evidently is – being blackmailed about doesn’t bode well for anybody.

    David Wells is about to get a call to come work for the Clinton Crime Family…

    It used to be a football site. Now it’s a football, BLM, and “Washington” football team site.

    David Wells? The dude who threw the perfect game?

    Why can’t we talk about how great the Dallas draft picks have looked so far this season?

    Classic pic of “The Cleaner”, Harvey Keitel.

    Isn’t Wells the ‘independent investigator’ for Goodell? This guy sounds like a borderline criminal, basically selling his legal integrity to the highest bidder. If you need something fixed or someone setup, he is the guy the NFL turns to I guess.

    Purely click-bait….this is becoming worse than the National Enquirer…..

    Wells will never actually come forward with anything he may or may not really know about Bryant. He values his relationship with the Cowboys too much, and also knows how much causing a problem for them would affect his standing in the Dallas community as a whole where he still lives and will need to do business.

    perhaps the Washington Post should concentrate its efforts on the nonsense that exists in Washington? maybe? i’m sure there are much more important things going on there at this present time, oh wait, never mind that doesn’t sell as well as dragging Dez and the Cowboys into a ridiculous article, written strictly from conjecture and no actual facts or verifiable sources. real problems are ignored for shear fabrications and a nonsensical narrative. no wonder newspapers went out of business, too bad the Post didn’t die as well.

    Another fine piece of excellent journalism. The Washington Post should be proud. Continuing the fine tradition with the likes of Bernstein and Woodward. Yeah this belongs right up there…

    Okay then. Still waiting on that Walmart from a year and a half ago all you media guys were getting thrills up your legs over.
