Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has agreed to strict guidelines from team officials regarding his conduct away from the field.
The guidelines Bryant agreed to took effect Aug. 23 when the team returned to Dallas after three weeks of training camp in California, according to sources.
Rules include a midnight curfew, no alcohol, no strip clubs, no nightclubs (unless approved), mandatory counseling sessions, and one member of a three-man security team will be with him at all times.
"Oh yeah, very much willing to do anything he can to help himself and help the team," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said of Bryant. "He's very open-minded and cooperative. He's doing the right things by his teammates and everybody is counting on him."
The rules stem from a July 14 incident where Bryant was charged with allegedly assaulting his mother, Angela Bryant. Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor by the DeSoto Police Department.
This is a very interesting situation in that Bryant agreed to abide by these rules. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out, though it's encouraging for potential fantasy owners knowing that Bryant appears to be on the right track. Now if only the Titans can do the same thing with Kenny Britt…
