Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo: Dez Brynat is a” good kid,” he will “learn”
"I reached out to Dez, and it's obviously a tough situation, and you just learn, like everybody does," said Tony Romo. "Dez is a good kid. He's going to learn from this situation.”
"The one thing I know is that Dez knows I have his back," continued Tony Romo. "Dez knows I'll be there for him. Dez knows that I'm going to stick up for him."
A warrant was issued for Dez Bryant’s arrest on Monday following a 911 call from his mother, Angela Bryant, on the past Saturday night. The 39-year-old mother of the running back reported her son had grabbed her by the shirt and hair, torn her clothes, repeatedly beaten her around the hands and wrist as well as hit her in the face with his ball cap.
The Desoto chief Ron Smith revealed that the police intended to file Dez Bryant for a Class A domestic violence misdemeanor, but the player gave himself up to the police on Monday. Dez Bryant can be sentenced to one year in jail and can face a fine up to $4,000.
The league isn’t too high on player’s off-field misconduct. Thus, under the CBA’s personal conduct policy, Dez Bryant can be penalized with a suspension or fine.
Tony Romo argued that the finger pointing on Dez Bryant’s character was uncalled for since most of the people were unaware of the intimate details of the 23-year-old player’s life.
"Everyone, the speculation, the articles and things that are written are just people that are guessing,” expressed Tony Romo. “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."
Dez Bryant indeed did have a difficult childhood as he was born to a teenage mom, who was a cocaine addicted and formerly convicted on drug charges.
"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,” assured Tony Romo.
Dez Bryant has repeatedly come up on the Dallas Cowboys’ list of players in trouble, but his teammates have had his back, still bring along subjects such as "growing up" and "maturity" in their remarks regarding the player’s behavior. However, the Dallas Cowboys’ players are impressed by Dez Bryant’s on-field progress and see him excelling in his position next season.
"He had a great offseason, “ said Tony Rom, “he's improved tremendously in the last six months, and he's going to have a good season this year and he's going to continue to develop as a football player."
