Dez Bryant Says He’s “America’s Most Hated” After Reports of Him Missing Meetings


Earlier on Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter sent out a report from an inside sources stating that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has missed over 40 team meetings and scheduled MRI’s since his time in the NFL.

“Dallas has tried to work with wide receiver Dez Bryant, Roc Nation has done the same, and there have been improvements. But Bryant has demonstrated a pattern of irresponsible behavior throughout his time in Dallas, being late to or flat out missing medical treatment or team meetings at least 20 and possibly as many as 40 times during his Cowboys career, according to sources familiar with the situation. As one Cowboys player remarked, “If you were hoping for him to come to a scheduled meeting, he may or may not be there; but if you need a first down on third and 14, throw it to Dez.” One source said Bryant has been late or missed treatment on his foot injury that dates back to last season “at least 7 or 8 times this year alone” – and he has made strides over time. Bryant does not believe it to be a serious issue and the Cowboys publicly have supported him. In the end, it comes to this: Bryant isn’t doing anything criminal, he’s just being irresponsible.”

Dallas News reporter Jon Machota asked Dez about those allegations. He denied anything like that has been going on.  He also said none of his teammates would hang him out to dry like that.
