Cowboys' Bryant should be embarrassed

If Dez Bryant isn’t embarrassed, he should be. The Cowboys’ talented but clueless wide receiver apparently cannot be trusted to get himself to and from team functions, including practices and games, without a support staff. He cannot be trusted to stay out past midnight and, before he attends any nightclub, he must get team approval. Strips clubs and alcohol are also prohibited under guidelines instituted by the team to keep Bryant from destroying a promising career. The Cowboys say the guidelines have been established with the purpose of helping Bryant be more accountable, something that might be expected from a supposedly grown-up man of 23 making millions of dollars. But, given the nature of many NFL players, this is something that will probably become more popular in the very near future. Bryant may be a nightmare off the field, but he’s far from an isolated case in the NFL. The league has no shortage of players with too much talent, money and leisure time, and too little character, maturity and guidance.
