Former Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl wide receiver Drew Pearson hasn't always been a Dez Bryant fan.
As recently as last October, the original No. 88 was criticizing the current No. 88 for not living up to the expectations of the number that was also worn by Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.
But Pearson seems to be buying in to the success Bryant had during the second half of last season.
"Basically, I just think he's got a complete understating of what he was doing out there as far as his plays were concerned, his assignments, his adjustments to those assignments and those types of things," Pearson said Monday on the Fitzsimmons and Durrett show on 103.3 KESN-FM. "And in doing that, it gave him a lot of confidence, No.1, but it also gave him a chance now to let his athletic ability and talent take over. I think he realizes now that when he comes out of that huddle, he's the dominant force, not that defensive back, even though that defensive back might have more experience, he might be an All-Pro, or whatever. The fear now is on the defensive side when they see Dez come out of that huddle.
"I think now he realizes that. He realizes the talent he has, and put that with the fact that now he knows his plays and where to be, then you add the factor that at the end of last season Jason Garrett and Tony Romo both showed a different level of confidence in him because of his progress and his improvement. So that, to me, was the difference. I expect that to be carried over into this season."
Bryant recorded 10 touchdown receptions during the final eight games last season. He also had consecutive 145-yard receiving games and a 224-yard game during that stretch. Through Bryant's first three seasons, the former first-round draft pick has 200 receptions for 2,871 yards and 27 receiving touchdowns in 43 games.

I am so tired of hearing about the past of Dez Bryant. The past of the former first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys has received a lot of attention during his NFL career and Bryant has not always done the best job of staying out of news.
Bryant also shares my dislike about hearing about his past regularly.
“I just wanted to know why is my background relevant...
With Aaron Hernandez facing murder charges, and scouts and executives wondering how his violent tendencies slipped under the radar, the question of proper background checks prior to the NFL Draft have now come up.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley is not the tallest player on the 53-man roster in Dallas, in fact he is the smallest. But the undersized slot receiver can jump as good as anyone else on the team. The evidence comes in the form of him throwing down a few dunks with ease. Hops for days.

Tweet Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley doesn’t look that intimidating on the football field. Standing just 5’8” and weighing only 180 pounds, his stature isn’t one that really screams elite athlete. Beasley caught just 15 passes in his rookie season last year for only 128 yards. However, this video of him throwing down some [...]
If you were to guess a Dallas Cowboys receiver who could throw down in a game of basketball it is unlikely that Cole Beasley would be your first guess.
Maybe it should have been.
At 5’8″ the 24-year-old out of Southern Methodist can dunk a basketball with a mean reverse.
Beasley joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and caught 15 passes for 128 yards.
