Cowboys wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson said last week that Dez Bryant has been having a good offseason. That's music to a Cowboys fan's ears considering Bryant was often in the news for the wrong reasons last year at this time. The 2010 first round pick was given a criminal trespass warning at a Dallas mall in March 2011. He was also involved in multiple lawsuits from unpaid loans. Bryant responded by improving statistically on the field, however, he failed to record a single 100-yard receiving game and he faded in the fourth quarter on several occasions. After losing Laurent Robinson via free agency, it's obvious the Cowboys need Bryant to be even better in 2012. And according to Robinson, Bryant is on track. "The teaching sessions got off to a good start," Robinson said on May 5. "He's out here working really, really hard to get better. It's got to make a difference. If it doesn't, then what's the point of the off-season program? I'm confident it's going to help." During Cowboys Fan Fest Sunday in San Antonio, Bryant was on the same page with his coach. "It's helped me a lot to be with Coach Robinson," Bryant told the San Antonio Express-News. "We are progressing more, learning a lot." Another thing that could help Bryant in the future is going against cornerback Morris Claiborne, the Cowboys' top pick in last month's draft, in practice. "We are all going to enjoy going against him," Bryant said. "He's going to make all of the wideouts better and we are going to make him better." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
