Garrett Says Cowboys WR Bryant Is Getting Himself “Back In Line”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett briefly had a chance to connect with WR Dez Bryant during the break in the NFL lockout last month. And Garrett said Monday in an appearance on ProFootballTalk Live that he thinks Bryant is doing better after the tumultuous turn his offseason took in March.

“We did get a chance to see a number of players and visit with a number of them who were out of town, just over the phone so he was in that mix,” Garrett told PFT Live, via ESPN. “And he seems like he’s doing better.” Bryant was issued a criminal trespass citation after a dust-up with police at a Dallas-area mall in March. News also emerged that he was being sued for more than $800,000 in merchandise (one of the suits has since been settled).

“For a lot of young guys transitioning into the league, it’s important to them to have structure,” Garrett said. “And we feel like for Dez and for other guys on our team, and really throughout the NFL, the importance of having an offseason program and OTAs and all those things really helps them and helps them get acclimated to this game and this level and this lifestyle and that’s been an unfortunate byproduct of this lockout. But (Bryant) seems to be getting himself back in line and we can’t wait to get him and the rest of the group back to work.”
