Drastic times call for drastic measures. That is the Dallas Cowboys' current approach towards their embattled star wide receiver Dez Bryant. After getting into yet another off-the-field incident in July, which allegedly involved grabbing his own mother by the hair and hitting her in the face, Dez has agreed to a laundry list of guidelines set out by owner Jerry Jones. As of August 23rd, Bryant must abide by the rules below:
• A midnight curfew. If he’s going to miss curfew, team officials must know in advance
• No drinking alcohol
• He must attend counseling sessions twice a week
• A rotating three-man security team will leave one man with Bryant at all times
• Members of the security team will drive Bryant to practices, games and team functions
Black Sports Online did point out that the Cowboys tried out a similar approach with Pacman Jones and that failed to work out after Jones started fighting his security personnel. With such severe rules set before Bryant, you gotta expect the wide receiver to rebel at some point. So, what's the over/under? How about we set it at the second game of the season?
