The Cowboys desperately need Dez Bryant to have a big year if they are going to be successful this season, which is why they are going to extreme measures to keep their star wideout from getting into trouble. Now that training camp has ended, the Cowboys have reportedly hired a personal security team for Bryant to enforce a number of rules.

For starters, Dez has a nightly curfew of midnight and must inform team officials in advance if he has to miss it. He is not allowed to drink alcohol or go to any strip clubs, and he can only go to a nightclub if it is approved by the team or a security team is accompanying him. Bryant’s security team will be with him at all times and drive him to practices, games and team functions. He also must attend counseling sessions twice a week.

Simply put, a grown man has been given a babysitter. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says Bryant is open to doing whatever it takes to help the team.

“Oh yeah, very much willing to do anything he can to help himself and help the team,” Jones said according to ESPNDallas.com. “He’s very open-minded and cooperative. He’s doing the right things by his teammates and everybody is counting on him.”

Can you blame the Cowboys for wanting to hold Dez’s hand? As we all know, he was recently arrested for allegedly assaulting his own mother. In addition to that, there was this ridiculous incident from last year and he still has this hanging over his head. Bryant clearly needs assistance in keeping his nose clean. If a personal security team doesn’t help, nothing will.
