After being charged with a Class A misdemeanor family violence charge, Tony Romo is in Dez Bryant’s corner.
“The one thing I know is that Dez knows I have his back,” Romo told ESPN‘s Ed Werder Friday. “Dez knows I’ll be there for him. Dez knows that I’m going to stick up for him. None of us are directly involved in what’s going on in his life,” Romo said. “So everyone, the speculation, the articles and things that are written are just people that are guessing. And they’re going to have their opinions based on it but no one knows exactly the way that Dez grew up, the way that things have shaped his life and his difficulties. Stuff happens and we all wish that certain things wouldn’t, and I know that he’s going to try to make sure in the future those things don’t happen again,” Romo said. “But friends and your teammates don’t leave you during those moments. They come back and they tell you that we’re here for you. Our football team is a close-knit team, and these moments should show that.”
I admire that Romo wants to be the voice of sound and reason, but if Deion Sanders gave up on Bryant, doesn’t that say a lot about Bryant’s character and the lack of respect he has for the people surrounding him?
