Dez Bryant takes the team out for $54,000
At some point you knew Roy Williams was going to get Dez Bryant.
In training camp, Bryant refused to carry Williams' shoulder pads, saying he didn't know anything about the tradition of rookies carrying a veteran player's shoulder pads.
Williams excused it saying just take the team out and get him some Nikes.
Monday night at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Bryant took the offensive players out, then Williams invited the defensive players and when the night was over the bill came: $54,896.
"They got the young fella," said Bryant's adviser David Wells. "What could he say? He had to pay it unless he wanted to wash dishes for a month."
Players ordered basically everything on the menu and even took home bottles of wine.
After checking out the winebook, which is 90 pages, we wonder if anyone purchased the Chateau Latour for $9,000.
Then we figured a few players got that Plumpjack Reserve for $600.
No word from Bryant or Williams about their thoughts on how the evening went.
