Deion Sanders Concerned About Cowboys Receiver Dez Bryant

Football news is a little slow right now, unless you're a fan of all the legal mumbo-jumbo going on with the potential new Collective Bargaining Agreement. While it does look like something will get done within the next two weeks, nothing is done right now - which leads us to stories like this one. Former Cowboy Deion Sanders is concerned about current Cowboys wide out Dez Bryant

"Everybody is. I think the Dallas Cowboys are more concerned than I am," Sanders told WCNN sports radio in Atlanta on Tuesday.

"It's hard to talk to a person when they have millions, man, because there is so much noise in their life," Sanders said on the radio station. "Everybody around them is employed and they have 'yes men.' You gotta start hiring a 'no man.' "

Bryant's college career at Oklahoma State was cut short because he had contact with Sanders that ran afoul of NCAA regulations. In his first training camp with the Cowboys, Bryant refused to carry Roy Williams' pads, leading to another controversy.

Still, Sanders stuck with him, until the former Cowboy said he thought Bryant would negatively influence children in his youth program.

To me, it's likely much ado about nothing. Wide receivers are often divas and/or head cases, and Bryant hasn't really caused too much off the field trouble - and the things that have come up haven't really been out of control.

I expect Bryant to have a pretty huge year this year on the field, regardless of whatever Sanders thinks of his off the field character.
