Bryant Excited to Get Back on the Field in 2011

After a rookie season marred by ankle injuries, and a first NFL offseason spent fending off a mall banishment and multiple lawsuits for unpaid jewelry purchases, wide receiver Dez Bryant is eager to get back on the field in 2011.

“I feel like this is the year,” Bryant said on Friday according to the Dallas Morning News. “I’m going to be fully healthy, I’m going to be in full effect. I’m just trying to start where I left off at.

“I would show you all what I’ve been working on, but wait until the lockout’s over and that’s when you’re all going to see the full effect.”

Bryant caught 45 passes for 561 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games before a broken ankle landed him on injured reserve in Week 13. Bryant also averaged 14.3 yards on 15 punt returns, returning two for touchdowns.

The 2010 first-round pick also praised the work quarterback Tony Romo did in organizing the team’s player-run workouts, and expects the benefits of those workouts to be visible when training camp opens up.

“I’m pretty sure we’re going to practice like the lockout never even existed.”
