Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been doing a lot of speaking this week.
Some about past issues, some about current issues.
What is consistent is his issue named Dez Bryant.
Jones has displayed a ton patience with Bryant, and has kind of displayed the same type of loyalty to Bryant, that he shared with Michael Irvin.
Jerry Jones knows Dez Bryant is young, and according to the Dallas Morning News, Jones says he see’s a lot of himself in some of Bryant’s mistakes.
“He is getting better. He’s better as a player,” Jones said, via The Dallas Morning News. “(He) certainly continues to make some mistakes, make some bad judgments out there, but he’s doing better. He’s worth it. He’s worth it. Let me be real clear about that.
“He can help this team win. The same thing is true off the field. I do see that he’s evolving. He’s more aware. He’s doing the kinds of things that you’d expect somebody 24 to — think about at the time, but now think about what I just said — you’d expect somebody 24 to think about at the time. (I) had a few slips when I was in that age range myself.”
If Dez Bryant ever blows his opportunity with the Cowboys, he can never question Jerry’s faith or loyalty in him.
