Former Dallas Cowboys great Drew Pearson is not a fan of the new rules that have been set for wide receiver Dez Bryant.
“I don’t think this situation is a good situation as far as Dez is concerned,” Pearson told the G-Bag Nation show on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM per the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t like it. It’s a grown man. He’s 23-years-old. A grown man has to be restricted and told what to do? You’re supposed to be a professional.
“You’re playing in a multi-billion dollar industry, for one of the most recognized sports franchises in the world, and you can’t be a man and be mature enough to handle that yourself? You have to be told when to be in. You have to have people go with you. You have to have people drive you to practice and make sure you’re in the right place at the right time.
“The thing about that, that might help Dez right now as far as getting him and what the Cowboys need from him and keeping him out of trouble, but as soon as the Cowboys are done with him or the NF

The guidelines by which Dez Bryant must abide by if he wants to remain a part of the Cowboys have received much scrutiny over the last few days, but the team's outspoken owner says they weren't the team's idea.
DALLAS Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson said receiver Dez Bryant has yet to prove he's worth the off-field trouble he's brought upon himself and the team.
"Time will tell," Johnson said Wednesday during a press conference at a Dallas hotel. "I don't think you can say yes or no right now. Up to this point, we don't know. He's just a young guy...
After learning of the Dez Bryant rules that were apparently mandated by the Cowboys, there was talk that the rules could violate the CBA. But according to 105.3 The Fan, the rules don’t actually violate the CBA. Mainly because the rules were not handed down by the Cowboys. Instead, it was Dez Bryant’s inner circle that created the rules and presented them to the Cowboys.
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is a talent on the field, but his problems start when he steps off the field.

By now we all know the deal with Dez Bryant and his new rules. The guy can’t go to strip clubs, has to be home by midnight, blah, blah, blah. It’s pretty sad that it’s come to this with Dez. The guy has all the talent in the world and just can’t seem to get his sh*t together. The guy was sued by creditors, got in a nightclub fight with Lil’ Wayne, then to top it all off...
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says a series of guidelines have been put in place for Dez Bryant to hold the young receiver accountable.
While Garrett didn't go into specifics Monday, he said the team wants to support Bryant and his family. He says there is a balance in holding players accountable while also wanting to support and help them.
Forget Tony Romo and the sometimes ill-timed interception that seems to offset super-athletic flashes of utter brilliance. When it comes to off-the-charts, untapped athletic—and football—prowess, Dez Bryant is the most frustrating Dallas Cowboy of them all.
Writing his column, Shutdown Corner, for Yahoo! Sports, Doug Farrar puts it quite well:

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was reportedly given a set of rules by the organization in order to ensure he stays out of trouble. Was it a mistake for Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett to make said rules public. Will making those rules public cost Jason Garrett his job?
We already mentioned that the Cowboys have committed a personal security team to Dez Bryant detail in order to keep the oft-troubled receiver from finding himself in more hot water. Of course, the Cowboys learned the hard way with Pacman Jones that a team of bodyguards isn’t enough on its own to enforce behaviorial guidelines. Further steps are necessary. Which is why the Cowboys...
