It is real simple.
If Dez stays out of trouble for a year he gets paid, if he doesn’t, the contract is voided. Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas breaks it down further.
According to a source, as a sign of good faith, Bryant won’t receive payment from the Jordan Brand for the first year of the deal. Bryant, according to the source, wants to prove to Jordan that he won’t get into any trouble. If he could do that, he’ll receive the salary in the second year of the deal.
Here is what Jordan told Dez when he brought him on to the Jordan Brand.
“The only thing he told me was ‘stay out of trouble,’ ” Bryant said after Tuesday’s practice at Valley Ranch. “Hearing it come from him … He is a strong voice. His opinion matters.”
Bryant says he is a changed man, I have my doubts, but he will have to show and prove on and off the field.
