This is very surprising considering that Dez Bryant was nothing short of amazing during his first season in Dallas. The report comes from ESPNDallas.com’s Calvin Watkins who mentions that a person in the Cowboys front office who said that they “would think about” trading wide receiver Dez Bryant during the offseason.
The only reason that would make any amount of sense why the team would consider trading Bryant is if the team feels that he is becoming a liability.
Matt Mosley of ESPN.com got some comments from former Cowboys wide receiver Patrick Crayton who said that “they let [Bryant] get away with a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff.” Crayton went on to explain that “hopefully whoever they bring in as receivers coach, and they say [Jason] Garrett is a disciplinarian, won’t let him get away with so much stuff. He’ll get locked down and hopefully be the next Michael Irvin.”
It’s probably a mistake to think that the Cowboys would really pass on an amazing talent instead of getting someone that can manage their players better. Bryant would command multiple draft picks including a first-rounder if the Cowboys elect to part with him but that still seems like a long shot.
