Dez Bryant didn't take part in many national media interviews during his first three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. But recently, Bryant has jumped on a few radio programs and TV shows on ESPN and the NFL Network.
It appears that more of those won't be taking place in the future.
According to a tweet posted Tuesday on Bryant's official Twitter account, the 24-year-old wide receiver is done with the national media.
I'm never talking with the media outside of valley ranch all they do is twist your words.... Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) April 9, 2013
Last month, Bryant claimed that it was possible for him to become the first player to finish a season with 2,000 receiving yards. ESPN's Skip Bayless said Bryant was being selfish by putting his own goals above his team's success. However, Bayless missed the part where Bryant said individual stats don't matter if the Cowboys aren't in the playoffs.
Bryant's words were apparently misunderstood, again. The latest twisting of the words took place after Bryant told ESPN radio 660 in El Paso, Texas about how he loves having the target on his back of playing for a team that fans love to hate.
"I feel like the greatest thing about being on the Cowboys is people love to hate the Cowboys," Bryant said. "That makes you work 10 times harder. They put the big target on us or whatever, I know, speaking for myself, it doesn't bother me. I'm pretty sure it doesn't bother a lot of guys. They like that kind of pressure. It makes us want to work hard and makes you want to do what you need to do to hopefully get to that big game."
Being a media member who travels to the Cowboys Valley Ranch practice facility during the season, I will say it certainly makes covering the team much easier when Bryant is taking part in interviews. Its difficult to write about a team when their most explosive offensive weapon isnt available for comment.
