Dallas Cowboys all-pro wide receiver Dez Bryant is still recovering from surgery to his foot and ankle that limited him to just 9 games last season. The injuries caused Bryant to finished last year with a career-low 31 receptions, 401 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Bryant is still not fully cleared for practice, but that didn’t stop him from predicting he will be better than ever before.
Bryant told the Dallas Morning News :
Man, I’m not even trying to [get back] to 2014. I’m past that. I’m going to be better than that. I’m going to. The way we’ve been working, the way the coaches have been on us, the way we’ve been holding each other accountable, I think that alone is going to make us all be better than what we were in these past years.
Bryant will have his work cut out for him if he wants to be better than his 2014 numbers. He will need to catch more that 88 passes for over 1,320 yards come down with more than 16 touchdowns.
With Bryant on my roster in my keeper league, I am looking forward to seeing him back these comments up this season against the guys from my league, Straight Cash Homie.
