The Dallas Cowboys open training camp on Monday. It will mark the beginning of the most important season of Dez Bryant’s short career in the NFL. Bryant needs to prove he is an elite player worthy of the draft pick and money the Cowboys have spent on him.

He was thought of as a physically gifted prospect worthy of a top five selection, who dropped because of questions about off the field issues. The Cowboys took a gamble when they selected him. So far the gamble has not paid off.
In his two seasons in the NFL, Bryant has played in 27 games and caught 108 passes for 1,489 with 15 touchdown receptions. Those are solid numbers but they are not elite. In 27 career games Bryant has had only one 100 yard receiving game. He has shown flashes of being a great receiver but has not been consistent.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins told reporters Monday at the Cowboy's first day of training camp that he never asked the team for a trade.
He was reportedly dissapointed that they brought in two players at his position, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne, and perhaps thought his future with the team was in jeopardy.
Y'all haven't gotten any quotes out of me...
America’s Team has lost its way in the last decade-plus. Most people recognize that, but it still means a lot for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to say that he pines for the return of the rich Cowboys traditions of the past. Part of that was when the Cowboys were winning playoff games and even Super Bowls. That’s not all of it, though. There’s more to the Cowboys mystique than...
DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones assured fans that the team will be triumphant when it faces the Giants this season, but said so using much more colorful language.
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett acknowledged that quite a few players failed their conditioning tests on the first day of camp.
“I don’t want to get into the reasons why any of those guys were not able to do it. The fact is, they didn’t do it,” Garrett said. “We need to make sure they are physically ready to practice the way we want to practice before...
OXNARD, Calif. - We may never know who pulled what bra strap and we may never know if "striking someone in the face with a cap'' is a truly violent act or just a re-enactment of an old Lauren & Hardybit.
