Weeden on Dez Bryant: He's a freak

By Todd Archer

IRVING, Texas -- Brandon Weeden was teammates with Dez Bryant at Oklahoma State, but he didn’t get to play that much with the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver because of Bryant’s NCAA suspension.

But that doesn’t mean the Cowboys’ newest quarterback doesn’t know all about the Cowboys’ best receiver.

“He’s a freak,” Weeden said. “I’m not surprised he’s done what he’s done at all. Dez was born to play one sport and it’s football. He’s a freak. He’s one of my all-time favorite teammates. I loved being around Dez. He’s like a little kid, happy go lucky, a fun guy to be around. I figured his career would go like this, a superstar top-two receiver in the league. I knew it from Day 1 on campus. We were running routes and he ran a bang 8, a skinny post, full speed and the quarterback threw it behind him. He just reached back, caught it with one hand in stride. I was like, ‘Holy cow.’ I knew right then this kid had it.”
