Now that there’s audio available to back up Dez Bryant’s claim that he was saying only positive things when he was seen shouting at Tony Romo in a sideline rant last weekend, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback was ready to offer a strong defense of his top receiver.
The 33 year-old QB took care of it without the arm-waving that landed the emotional Bryant in the headlines again.
According to what YouWager experts learned Romo stated in the locker room, “Does he need to sometimes maybe look a little different for what’s going to be written and talked about?
“Does it really matter in here? No. He’s a positive guy who loves his teammates. What else do you want? He’s passionate and he comes to work every day with a great attitude.
“I’d like a lot of teammates like that.”
The California native players tried to warn the masses in the moments after a 31-30 loss to Detroit.
That’s because he knew the cameras would catch what was happening right in front of him — Bryant waving his arms wildly, walking away from Romo, turning around abruptly to yell a few more things while coach Jason Garrett made an effort to steer him in another direction.
Bryant’s gyrations are always news because commentators presume No. 1 receivers are always shouting for the ball. And since Bryant was targeted just six times against the Detroit Lions, it was easy to forget he had two touchdowns.
