Will Bryant be next great No. 88?

IRVING, Texas -- How high are expectations for Dez Bryant in Dallas?
They're handing him the No. 88 jersey, which was worn by Cowboys receiver legends Drew Pearson and Michael Irvin.
We know this because the official team site already has Bryant No. 88 jerseys for sale.
Of course, thrifty fans could just pull the old Antonio Bryant jerseys out of the back of their closet. He's the last Cowboys receiver to wear No. 88. (Tight ends Jackie Harris and Brett Pierce also briefly had the number since Irvin retired.)
Antonio Bryant, who also slipped in the draft due to off-field issues, didn't live up to the legend of No. 88 during his Dallas tenure.
Now Dez Bryant (no relation) gets a chance to return the number to its glory.
