Bryant handles business, focuses on game

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will not mix business with pleasure. Football is Bryant's first love, his true passion. It's also his job, his means of supporting an extended family that endured poverty as he grew up in the East Texas town of Lufkin. Bryant will not allow the business side to bleed over into the game he loves. He refuses to let finances blur his focus on football. The determination to avoid any potential distractions is why Bryant has set a deadline of sorts on his contract discussions with the Cowboys.

Dez Bryant craves hard coaching

IRVING, Texas -- The contested, leaping, juggling catch on the sideline didn’t count, but it served as yet another example of Dez Bryant's rare physical gifts. It also served as an example of the 25-year-old Pro Bowl receiver’s room for growth.

Dez Bryant's dominance just 'a tease'

ARLINGTON, Texas – As far as August football goes, it doesn’t get much more entertaining than Dez Bryant’s preseason debut Saturday night.

He showed up arguably his best attribute – the ability to soar over a defender and snatch the ball out of the air – on a 31-yard score over helpless cornerback Dominique Franks before...

Dez Bryant determined to be better blocker

OXNARD, Calif. -- Dez Bryant can do just about anything on a football field. In his first four seasons he has shown he can make the incredible leaping catch over a defensive back. He can make the tough grab in traffic. He can make the short catch and run through and by defenders. The Pro Bowl appearance on his resume is verification. But where Bryant wants to improve is as a blocker, proof that this running game is serious business for the Dallas Cowboys in 2014.
