Dez Bryant: "I felt like I did OK"
Bryant finished with 63 catches for 928 yards and nine touchdowns in his second season. Bryant started 13 games and played in 15 after he was limited to 12 games as a rookie in 2010.
“I felt like I did OK,” Bryant said. “I feel like it could’ve been 10 times better.”
Bryant talked about improvement he can make this offseason.
“There’s always room to get better,” Bryant said. “I just feel like everything: more film watching, more route running, more ball drills.”
But Bryant was not about to complain about a lack of passes thrown his direction. His six catches Sunday vs. the New York Giants tied his second-best game of the season. He did not have a 100-yard game on the year.
“Like I said earlier in the season we’ve got a lot of great players on this team,” Bryant said. “When your number is called you do your job. I feel like everybody done their job for the most part. I’ve just got to look at it this way: it’s a team game. This is not golf. This is not tennis. This is something that you play with a group of guys.”
Bryant was praised by the coaches during the year for his growing maturity and attention to detail, but he reportedly faces a lawsuit from a company seeking $50,000 in payment. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the money has been paid.
“If he says it’s been paid that means it’s been paid,” said Bryant, who did not take more questions on the subject.
