Jerry Jones will wait until Sunday to discuss Dez Bryant
That means the Dez Bryant drama could dominate the camp-opening press conference Sunday in Oxnard, Calif.
Jones has yet to publicly comment about Bryant’s arrest last week on a Class A family violence charge for allegedly assaulting his mother, a charge Angela Bryant has asked the Dallas County district attorney’s office to drop.
The Cowboys’ company line so far has been to pledge support for Bryant. That was the emphasis of comments made by head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Tony Romo.
Garrett, who addressed the topic Wednesday, said it’s “premature” to discuss possible punishment from the team. If there is going to be a bad cop in the organization, it appears it will have to be Jones, and that’s not a role he’s been known to play.
