Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones told KRLD-FM, 105.3 The Fan that he never created any rules for wide receiver Dez Bryant to follow.

“I’m not so sure where the media has come up with detail of this nature,” Jones said Tuesday per the Star-Telegram. “Fundamentally, Dez does _ and I’m convinced _ want to do many things that give him the opportunity to get on track the way he needs to, both on and off the field.

“I think any of this talk or any of these references to what he’s going to be doing or what he is not going to be doing, in general, it’s one that would say just let’s conform to good behavior, the kind of behavior that the commissioner expects, that society expects and that anybody expects if you’re going to get the opportunities you are. He does believe he has a great opportunity.

“We’re fully supportive of him, his family, his mother. We want to do anything in that direction that we can. As far as specifics of rules, I think just rules that let him concentrate on what he’s doing on the field and let him do his work and not have the distractions of not doing it right off the field.”

Jones also declined to say whether Bryant’s advisor created the rules.

“I’m not going to discuss any of the rules because that implies that there are a certain set of rules and I don’t know that that’s correct, either,” Jones said. “So, really, just by the nature of it, it’s not one you would really discuss. We have rules of behavior in the NFL. We have rules of behavior with the Cowboys as well. I’m not so sure there’s been any new rule created here.”
