To keep himself out of trouble, receiver Dez Bryant has agreed to abide by off-the-field rules placed on him by the Dallas Cowboys. Bryant will not be allowed to consume alcohol, will have a relatively loose curfew and must be accompanied by a security team in certain situations, reports The Dallas Morning News.
Said Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, according to ESPN Dallas:
"What we've tried to do is come up with a plan for Dez, like we would for any player who we feel like needs our support and help him be his best as a player and as a person. And the accountability factor is an important part of that with him and with anybody on our football team."
Other restrictions on Bryant include an anti-strip club policy and required counseling sessions.
The decision to place the rules upon Bryant come after the wide receiver was arrested on July 14 for allegedly assaulting his mother. In that case, he was charged with a misdemeanor by the DeSoto Police Department, and the NFL still could pursue a suspension on the Cowboys' player.
