Dez Bryant: Had To Hold Back Tears After First Touchdown Since 2017 (VIDEO)
You’d be hard pressed to find anybody who wasn’t happy for Dez bryant on Sunday.
The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver got to throw up the X after he caught an 11-yard touchdown reception as quarterback Lamar Jackson threw for 243 yards and three touchdowns and added 35 yards and one score on the ground in Baltimore’s dominating 40-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After the game, he talked about how emotional it was for him:
“I’m being honest. I had to hold back my tears,” Bryant said. “It’s very emotional.”
“After I scored, the first person I thought of was my baby girl,” Bryant said. “I’m serious when I tell ya’ll, I had no intentions of playing ball. If it wasn’t for her, I don’t think I’d be out here.”
It was his first touchdown since Dec. 10, 2017 – 1,106 days ago.
