Dez Bryant is buried underneath there somewhere, which is something he will have to get used to.

Dez Bryant is buried underneath there somewhere, which is something he will have to get used to.

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was a young guy living the life. He was getting into trouble, but the consequences -- yet -- weren't real. Then the Cowboys put some major restrictions on him, as reported by ESPN.com:

A midnight curfew unless team officials were notified in advance, bans on drinking alcohol and attending strip clubs, twice-a-week counseling sessions and a rotating three-man security team whose duties would include driving Bryant to and from practices, games and all team functions.

And now Bryant's adviser wants us to believe that was all Dez's idea?

PLEASE!

Also per ESPN.com:

During a Tuesday appearance on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM's "Ben & Skin Show," David Wells said Bryant realized he needed to make some changes and asked for guidance. Wells said he formed a support group that included Texas senator and Bryant's attorney Royce West and a couple of ministers who sat down with Bryant to form a plan that was approved by Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones.

"(Bryant) wanted to be a part of it," said Wells, a former bail bondsman who assisted several ex-Cowboys and headed the team-paid security detail for cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones in 2008. "Then Jerry Jones is in great support of this system and said, 'Let's get it done.' It came out that it's all about somebody forcing it, but he's accepted responsibility himself to get past any negativity that's out there and try to move forward."

It's a nice spin, but we're not buying it. We just can't imagine a young millionaire in the prime of his life willingly giving up all that freedom. Maybe we're wrong, but ...
