Dez Bryant almost never ceases to amaze, both on and off the field. Dez, as you know by now, recently wrapped up a $70 million deal. His path to signing his name was winding and circuitous.It was also hilarious.According to Pro Football Talk, Dez put Jerry Jones on his heels last year by posing a question that made for an incredibly funny mental image.Last year, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was trying to negotiate directly with receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant, as a league source explains it to PFT, eventually asked Jones if Jones could cover Bryant on the football field.Jones admitted that he couldn’t do it. And Bryant then said something along the lines of, “Now you know how I feel.”Perfect.They even celebrated that the deal was done without Jerry having to put the pads on!!Hat tip to the Tulsa WorldIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
